Mitt Romney, meet Ronald Reagan. The Romney-Ryan campaign labels the 47 percent of people who dont pay federal income taxes as takers. But to President Reagan, the godfather of todays conservatives, anyone who worked for a living was a maker, whether he or she paid taxes or not.<quoted text>
There will be no solution as long as half the country isn't feeling the cost of the insanity of the government. If inflation hits those paying for the government, those not paying for the government get more food stamps, for instance. They do not feel the effect as long as we are continually forced to pay for the effect of inflation on them.
If we do not increase the number of people paying income taxes, then there will continually be increasing support for any Marxist that forces the people who are already the only people sacrificing and working and supporting everything and everyone to pay for everyone else.
Before any discussion of changes to the rates happens, there should be agreed upon an increase in the number of people paying income taxes.
It's insane to increase the number of people on the dole while the number of people paying for the dole decreases. Collapse is certain.
I do believe the Democrats intend on collapse. That will be the excuse they use to install a totalitarian government and eliminate the Constitution.
Reagan strongly supported the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which sends checks to Americans who work but earn less than around $46,000 a year, depending on family size. Recipients of the credit are among those who dont pay income tax, but Reagan never regarded that as a problem. His administration estimated that the 1986 reform of the tax code would remove 6 million working poor from the tax rolls. Reagan called the reform a sweeping victory for fairness and perhaps the biggest antipoverty program in our history.
