Our economy right now is in trouble. Over 150,000 homes are in or close to foreclosure. Our government is in debt over $9 billion. That is equivalent to $30,000 a person that lives in this country.
Illegal immigrants are not paying taxes and getting free health care. They go to the hospital for simple health issues and pay nothing. In 20-30 years those illegal immigrants will be retiring with no retirement fund or health care. And our children will be paying dearly for it. They work under the table and I’m tired of hearing how our children would not do those jobs. I disagree. Our high school, collage kids and elderly would be happy with the jobs that
illegal immigrants are doing. My parents brought me to this country legally. We learned the language and pay taxes. Why can’t all immigrants do that.
I don’t have allot of money, but I don’t want to rag on the wealthy. They have something that most of us don’t have or know. They are able to get ahead and I’m not. Not their fault.
I feel that most of the government jobs are a joke. We do not need that many people working for the government.
Our jobs are going out of the country. We should change import/export system. If we did that we would get our jobs back. I don’t remember last time I made a call regarding my phone or Internet and spoke to a person without an accent. I was told that if I wanted a guarantee that the person I’m speaking to is fluent in English and English is their first language it would cost me $10 a month.
I suppose a flat tax would be sensational if it was
coupled with a flat income. In other words, everyone
earns $100,000/yr. and is taxed equally on it.
The flat tax is simply more class warfare on the poor
and those who don’t earn a living wage. It is a
regressive tax by definition.
The only way we are going to begin to get out of our
economic woes is by mandating a living wage and
increasing taxes on the rich.
Just my opinion, and of course, I would never
