I know, it’s late in the day, but hey…I’m sure there are still a lot of people trying to finish their taxes even now. Thus, there’s still plenty of time to post some tax day fun!
Ah, good stuff. But seriously, where does all of our tax money go once it gets sucked into the black hole vortex of the U.S. Treasury? Here’s your answer:
That’s right…almost half goes straight into the redistribution system that is the Federal government. It’s quite a big difference even from last year:
Think we’re heading in the right direction? Think you can design a better system yourself? Give it a shot here.
Since we’re talking taxes, it is worth pointing out that Barack Obama has proposed over 450 tax increases since taking office:
Since taking office in 2009, President Barack Obama has formally proposed a total of 442 tax increases, according to an Americans for Tax Reform analysis of Obama administration budgets for fiscal years 2010 through 2015.
The 442 total proposed tax increases does not include the 20 tax increases Obama signed into law as part of Obamacare.
The number of proposed tax increases per year is as follows:
-79 tax increases for FY 2010
-52 tax increases for FY 2011
-47 tax increases for FY 2012
-34 tax increases for FY 2013
-137 tax increases for FY 2014
-93 tax increases for FY 2015
And just wait until Obamacare sets in. Remember, up to this point it’s only been a requirement for people who are self-employed or otherwise self-insured. Just wait until the masses of people getting their insurance from their employers start getting dumped like the first wave has been over the past 6-12 months because the Obamacare tax is punishingly high and truly unaffordable!
Anyway, I find it very interesting how the smallest number on there is the election year, and the largest number is the one immediately after an election. Coincidence, I’m sure.
Obama’s looking for even more tax increases, too, starting with several liberal pet projects like soda and sugary snacks. This madness is what prompted the spontaneous incarnation of the Tea Party.
So that’s the problem. Now let’s talk solutions. Here’s one that’s rapidly becoming more and more popular:
Sounds pretty good to me. How about you?
