I just made some signs for my work trailer.
They say: “I PAY 35% TAX On Every Dollar ... The Rich... As Little As 13‑14% … FAIR??”
And why did I do it? Because I am sick of working like a slave just to survive and pay high taxes, while the rich get a free pass.
I work over four months of the year, just to pay taxes. And since I can’t do anything but complain, I’m going to complain as loud as I can.
Romney made $21 million last year and paid 13 to 14 percent tax. Typical for the rich in America.
Why? Because like all the rich, he has Capitol Hill bought and paid for and in his hip pocket.
People like myself however, we don’t have any representation in Washington. Because we can’t buy it. So all we can do is complain.
We can’t “vote” a good man in, because there’s never one on the ballot. By the time they make it to the big time. They’re just looking for a big payday. And the voters are forgotten.
But like all good politicians in Washington, they have one great mission. And that is, fight for the American people. Right?
Hogwash, pure hogwash. The Republicans (in particular) in Washington have one purpose. To cut spending on anything that only helps the poor and middle class. And to cut taxes and write loopholes for the rich.
It’s like Leona Helmsley said, “only little people pay taxes.” But what the rich people don’t see is that a revolution is coming. The little people are getting fed up!
Editor’s note: Presidential candidate Mitt Romney said in January that virtually all of his income came from investments and that he will pay an effective tax rate of 15.4 percent for 2011. Dividends and long-term capital gains from investments are taxed at 15 percent for all recipients in the 25 percent tax bracket and higher, and are not taxed at lower levels of ordinary income (tax brackets of 10 percent and 15 percent). This is unlike income earned from wages, which has a top income tax rate of 35 percent.
