That is not very fair. My husband retired from the US army at the age of 42. We both work full time jobs plus he draws military retirement. How fair
is it to raise our taxes $14k a year ....we will lose our house and everything we have worked for.Dont hate. But please dont stereotype. we are not
wealthy. We live in a modest home, drive modest cars and pay our bills and taxes. Dont raise my taxes over $1 k a month to subsidize the lazy ones
that dont work and draw welfare.
Talk about unfair...how about cutting welfare..
Who do you think does the buying? Those earning money. Take away the middle class discretionary money and you will see the economy spiral downward
even more. I dont have an economics degree...this is common sense.
Cut welfare. they dont spend money anyway.
But, please dont hate because you dont make that kind of money. We worked our tails off since we were 19 years old to be where we are. We EARNED it.
Why tax us more to pay for the lazy people who dont work.
the solution? CUT WELFARE. PERIOD.
Flame on Ats'ers...I will not budge on this one.
edit on 8-12-2012 by k21968 because: Oh and by the way...we do not have a credit card. We pay
cash for all purchases except our house and car. We also have a small loan we used to pay our mortgage when my husband retired from the military
because the us army forgot to pay his retirement for 6 months. Other than the car, house and mortgage loan we took out we have 0 bills. We have
homeowners, auto and health insurance. We pay our taxes. We WERE living the American dream. The dream has turned into a nightmare. Our paychecks, his
retirement his VA disability *he was injured in war* and our income from our full time jobs barely pay the bills now. We get by by the skin of our
teeth. Everything costs more than it did 4 years ago. So our money simply doesnt go as far as it used to. Any money we had left over is in a fund so
our only child can attend collge next year. He inherited money when his father died and we put EVERY cent on our house. We bought in 2006, and
currently owe 25 more years on. Yeah, tax us some more so they can take our home. *complete sarcasm* we are hard working citizens of this country that
have never taken a handout. Every cent we get we have earned. So yeah it is real fair to take it from us. It is not my fault we have great jobs and it
put us in the $14k extra tax bracket.
