That’s the oft heard mantra, predominantly from the Left. I find it always a negative and more often than not down right bile producing. The Leftists that toss it about have no focus beyond their own personal,selfish guilt based politics to see the dangers of this warped false populism.
Let’s stimulate the economy…it’s for the children.
Although the jury is always going to be pimped and tweaked on this issue the stimulus has as of now only hurt the children.This is undeniable as the stimulus as it stands now is but a legacy of debt.
Let’s extend unemployment,and fuck you Bunning….it’s for the children.
OK if you say so. The unemployment extension is sadly not a bad idea and the House version came in at only $15 billion. The Senate is looking at tweaking it a tad. Up to $150 billion with mostly more tax incentives. This new page in the drama makes the Bunning affair look extra silly. The DC collective bashed Bunning over his “hypocrisy” re PAYGO. It was symbolism folks. Let’s actually pay for something without foreign hedge funds and Social Security Fund rape. Clearly if PAYGO was D.O.A. for 15 billion I’m thinking 150 is entirely out of the question.
We must pass ObamaCare…it’s for the children.
I could be cynical and say ,”fuck ’em they’ve got SCHIP”. The irony here is that at least SCHIP was funded last time I check. Although a case can be clearly made that some type of reform set applied to the health care industry would indeed help the kids the current stew of goo can’t be seen that way. The potential and very real repercussions of the plan at hand will at best send single payer to the children down the road,or should I say track? You know like a RR track with the light in the distance being the engine coming to crush you.(©i2tf2010) I know people want to use that metaphor for the other side of the argument. You can’t it’s copyrighted hahaha. Seriously though if anybody thinks some of the so-called reforms aren’t gonna cripple us thus painting a shitty future for the kids- I honestly just don’t know what I can say.
Alfie blows you away here,and it’s for the children.
So what is the answer? Well here it is and I am confident many of you never expected to hear this from me.
Flat Tax: I am a big fan of regressive taxation. No seriously. If people actually have to pay for stuff with their money they tend to get involved. A flat tax is fair,universal and responsible.A flat % paid by EVERYONE.
VAT: Yup I believe in a VAT.This multi tiered sales tax levels the playing field of national commerce to a degree while providing revenue.It can also be used as an off the table,screw you WTO tariff. It is also regressive and universal thus meeting the Alfie standard.
Eliminate all other taxes:You heard me. Taxes on investments and savings are the most idiotic,heinous and immoral of taxes. If Americans are to save America we must all be allowed and encouraged to save.
Cut government in a very BIG way.: I’m talking Department closure,building sell offs and wholesale eradication of the US bureaucracy.
I have to close that my plan is meant to erase the national DEBT let alone the annual deficits. If we want to secure the future sovereignty of this nation it is what must be done.
