Why do we use a progressive tax system? Why does a person who makes $100 per year have to pay a higher percentage of their earnings to the govt than does a person who makes half of that? It makes no sense to me.
Have you ever been told that someone really does not need all of that money? Most of us do not need hardly any money or things for that matter. We could all live extremely simplistically. We would survive. Even the libs who want to tax us so much could live without their coffee from the coffee house, and their green energy, and their newspaers. None of those are truly necessary in order to survive.
Some people say that as we make more money, we are able to give more away. That is true. As we earn more money, a lower percantage of our money is required in order to live comfortably. We have more disposable cash. More money to burn as the old saying goes.
Our tax system punishes high earners. Plain and simple. At some point, earning more means simply giving the government more. And all in the name of jealousy. Jealuosy has been around since Adam and Eve, or fish walking on water for liberals in the crowd. Jealousy was wrong then and it is wrong now.
Lets stop punishing success in this country. We need a better tax code.
