My last topic on this stupid, lied on tax reform.
Understanding an issue is one thing, accepting a continuous lie is another case.
While many posters here, or all of them are up and down with graphics and numbers, always looking for that thingy that makes them happy to receive a handout, they forget that the lie has been there all along. It wasn’t about you the middle class, or the lower class. It was about the rich guy! I am talking about real rich guys, billionaires!
Look at the way you show your emotions: Ooh, I am going to do good! Ooh…I am going to get this much of a return! Why did you, whom I believe most are middle class with some exceptions, have to be expecting what you have been expecting every year? Now, you are begging for more “things to come our way” from the tax reform. Why should you be expecting something you had coming your way anyway? Don’t tell me you always had to pay taxes. If you did, let me tell you, you were ill advised.
You don’t get it, do you? You have sold your soul for a couple of dollars in your hands. You are happy of receiving whatever and by doing that you close your eyes to the original lie in that promise. You have lost that dignity that may have existed in you. Those promises, and expectations come from people who have insulted you as an Asian, as a Hispanic, or any other race, or those within your race that discriminate or are racist themselves.
I understand your thirst for more money, who wouldn’t? You are a business guy or gal. But losing your identity, your dignity by accepting the fact that your people, the American people have been insulted and lied in a daily basis is something so dirty that doesn’t ring a bell in your head? I am not saying you should refuse to do what you do as a business man, but please, cheering the insult and demeaning of your race or throwing people under the bus by cutting their healthcare, or kids going hungry to school shouldn’t be something to be happy about. Money, no matter how it is obtained is not everything in life, there’s something called spirit, soul, and love for your human brothers. That’s all.
1- We politicians won’t benefit from tax reform:
Well, not true! Most politicians in Washington, specially those pushing that tax reform are not doing a thing. The ones writing the tax code as it has been shown numerous times are the lobbyists. The bosses, the ones holding the cash or the bribes are in charge. And they are very openly telling you that this is about throwing a bone to any politician to get their votes. This is not about “we the people” but about who is asking more of a handout. Politicians that said no, have been promised good deals for their states, not for the entire country. Is that fair to you? Fair that you have to pay more taxes or you have to bend over in order to get some generous return? Do you get my gig?
2- It will fit on a postcard:
Not really, not true, not a reality. You have been dumbfounded by a lie, by an illusion. You seem to be the kid expecting that candy in your mouth.
3- We will have 3, 5, no, wait! 8 tax brackets!
Try to refute this, it is yet another lie.
