23. Could it be you are only thinking of yourself? Me, I am for higher taxes for all but the poor

 

so down the road we have more achievements.

I would stand for 20%, 30% more taxes now, to live better later

Would you?

Do you know how government works?
It works on money.

Money from taxes. No other way but taxes.

It's a catch-22
You can't raise taxes then they whine about cutting back

It has to remain constant so I hereby want more taxes and the say, first $50,000 can be tax free. But everyone gotta pay the taxes. And zero means zero across the board. So throw out that retrogressive tax response.

And for all the carping over the 1%(whomever they are???People stereotype bankers, yet Walmart has more money than any banker does and has ruined more lives than any banker)
At least people on Wall Street who work 9 to 5 make a decent wage. Walmart makes billions and pays zippo. I am tired of stereotypes.

So, do you agree, all those between the ages of working til retirement pay more now
get back tenfold later.
Except for the poor.

BTW-why doesn't the poor whine? Why does only some in the middle whine?
The poor have it a zillion times harder, yet they don't whine.

There is a reason for that.
