With all this news about the IRS, it may be time to start looking into alternatives to the progressive income tax.
Why are the Republicans in Congress still not talking about this?
The Senate officially passed the internet sales tax bill today, which would allow states to begin charging tax for online purchases.
The Senate sided with traditional retailers and financially strapped state and local governments Monday by passing a bill that would widely subject online shopping — for many a largely tax-free frontier — to state sales taxes.
The Senate passed the bill by a vote of 69 to 27, getting support from Republicans and Democrats alike. But opposition from some conservatives who view it as a tax increase will make it a tougher sell in the House. President Barack Obama has conveyed his support for the measure.
Under current law, states can only require retailers to collect sales taxes if the store has a physical presence in the state.
Did your Senator vote for this piece of garbage? Sadly, both of mine did…and they’re Republicans. With Republicans like these, who needs Democrats?
Here’s the roll call:
Another unsurprising traitorous move by John McCain. This guy…I can’t even anymore.
Got your taxes done? Great! Now join on us on Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook all day on #TaxDay as we talk about what we’re proud our taxes pay for. Use the hashtag #ProudToPay.
You mean taxes pay to indoctrinate our children.
Who in their right mind would take pride in being forced to give their hard earned money to a government that fails at everything? I’d rather see a meme that says “Proud to donate to charity” or “Proud to volunteer my time” or “Proud to be involved in my community”. How can you take pride in being forced to do something?
Taxes teach kids what? Ever since the Department of Education was formed and began dictating education in this country, our standing and level of education has sunk lower each year.
Yeah, let’s be proud that we’re forced to pay for a stinker system.
“Taxes teach kids.” “Proud to pay.”
I don’t…I have no words anymore…
I’m sick of these individuals who think the only way to fix a problem is either by taxing it or banning it. Carbon taxes are a tax and taxes are never market friendly.
Yes, it is only a matter of time before the Feds are going to
steal borrow your retirement funds from your 401k, IRA and pensions. This is what happens when the government’s appetite is too strong for the private sector to feed anymore.
Oh, and for those that do work in the public sector, you’re not safe either.
This is a fantastic speech…but the guy had some serious stones to read it right in front of Obama because it stood against everything he believes in regarding taxation, education, and healthcare. If you watch you’ll notice how Obama barely cracks a smile the entire speech. He looks pretty miserable in fact.
This Dr. Benjamin S. Carlson is one of my new heroes.
