no more taxes
« on: June 29, 2019, 12:36:48 pm »
I can't believe that anyone says they want a person that will raise taxes.  Our economy is booming because of lower taxes.  When taxes go up economy goes down. I don't understand why people vote that way.

We have to be vigilant because the governing bodies sneak things along with other bills we like to get things into law that we do not want...for instance, more taxes!

I also don't understand why someone would vote for people who want to raise taxes either, but people do. Sometimes people just vote a person because they belong to a political party, but I like to know what the person stands for before I vote.

   No more taxes, please!
   Because everything, we buy and use, has already been taxed.
   We do not need more taxes!

I don't mind paying higher taxes for things that are needed and improved upon like universal healthcare and better infrastructure.  What I don't want is for my money to be wasted.

I totally agree with you.  It's the way the democrats or, as Judge Janine says, Demonrats, have brainwashed the public into thinking socialism is good.   Capitalism bad.  And the media to to blame as well, because all they do is spout the Democrat party lines.

Democrats love raising taxes every time there in the office of any kind. It's kinda a joke because of most of the times those same Democrats who preach good things from the taxes usually lining their pockets from those taxes

This country would be in better shape if everyone paid their fair share of taxes.  I haven't seen any increase from the big tax break that was given by the current administration.
Have a wonderful day!

It is quite evident that some people don't have the slightest idea of what programs this country already has that are "socialistic" and that we have been living with for many years.  Let's see: Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment insurance, public education, food stamps, public lands, etc.  Socialism provides safety net services for a population and the best government usually incorporates some parts of different philosophies to achieve the best end.

I believe that administration's use of taxes are the center of the problem. For instance, in Colorado a king's ransom in taxes (eighteen point nine percent) are collected from the sale of Marijuana. Two hundred and forty seven million dollars was collected in two thousand and seventeen. The lion's share goes to human services, local affairs, Public health and environment. Twenty percent supposedly goes to education yet teachers do not seem to be benefiting as their salaries are among the lowest in the nation (34th where the cost of living is 3.2% higher than the national average). The teachers are driving cars that they can not afford while the administration is driving luxury cars. Every year we are asked to vote for increased taxes for education when this sector can not manage the money they are getting. We are asked to vote for taxes to build better road ways when money is squandered on useless highway expansions (my wife is an engineer and I have a friend on the state council). It isn't just at the state level. We just witnessed the reallocation of funds from the military to the border wall. Obviously there was an unwarranted surplus.We need honest people to administer the administrators.

I don't like the idea of any taxes being raised and think taxes are plenty high enough. I feel like Washington would have more money if they denied more to the pork wasteful spending projects of many politicians. In my city millions were spent a rarely used trolley car and a prison that wasn't fully built and abandoned. Who knows how much could be saved if policies like those never saw the light of day rather than harmful tax cuts that only bleed the American tax payer.
