Too Rich To Tax
By Rod Eccles
There is an argument going on in Washington, D.C. that affects each and every one of us. I am not talking about Obamacare, although that does affect each and every one of us. And I am not talking about security issues such as the boarder wall or enhanced check points at air ports, although these, too, affect each and every one of us.
I am talking about taxes. Yes the talk about taxes has begun anew in D.C. Republicans say cut taxes. Democrats say any cut only benefits the rich. Both parties say tax cuts must be paid for. I don’t know how that is an actual tax cut if you have to “pay” for it with other taxes.
Republicans say, cut spending. Well some of the Republicans say cut spending. Democrats and many Republicans say raise other taxes to pay for income tax cuts. Again, that is a shell game and not a tax cut.
