In some ways, I guess you could say that we’re half way there.
The best news would be that none of us pay income tax. It should be eliminated.
Where is President Obama on this?
Fair is his middle name. He’s all about fairness.
How could it possibly be fair to have one half of the people in the country paying the freight for the other half?
And, of course, this plays right into the hands of big government, socialist leaning politicians who want to “transform” the country.
“This trend should concern everyone who supports America’s republican form of government,” Beach and Tyrrell wrote. “If the citizens’ representatives are elected by an increasing percentage of voters who pay no income tax, how long will it be before these representatives respond more to demands for yet more entitlements and subsidies from non-payers than to the pleas of taxpayers to exercise greater spending prudence?”
How long? How about yesterday?
Obama will run for President by promising the non-payers that he will make the payers pay more so that they can get more free stuff.
Maybe he can get them free one way flights to Greece.
