Any tax increases should be across the board, period. I would push that agenda and see how far Barky is willing to go. One more thing, I’d push to get rid of that inane earned income credit, it is nothing but a augmentation of the minimum wage paid through the tax system. A billion here a billion there, before you know it we would be talking real money.
This is not meant to suggest tax increases are going to solve the federal deficit, they MUST begin to roll back the federal largess....all programs....and eliminate the fluff like cell phones and the like.
At tax time, Young Women With Bastards (Obama constituency group) receive some $3,000-5,000 as a "refund" on their taxes.
I've observed that many of these checks are used to purchase crappy cars.
Id push to get rid of that inane earned income credit, it is nothing but a augmentation of the minimum wage paid through the tax system.Dito that.
Plus the EIC is a Dem vote buying scam. It's nothing but a de facto welfare gimmick -- The more 'children' you can claim the bigger the 'earned income credit' you receive.
Some illegals who use a Tax Number to file have been caught claiming as many as twenty 'children' or more. Some of whom didn't exist or who lived back in Mexico and weren't even their children like nieces and nephews. The 'refunds' were in five figures: $20,000-$30,000.
