All of this fiscal cliff talk on tax breaks, loopholes for business, higher rates for the wealthiest in America, entitlement programs and [sic] is ridiculous!
As an American who has fought for the freedoms everyone benefits from, I can say that everyone can and should pay more taxes. Why should they do this? It’s simple; if we don’t then our country is going to be headed down the road to Greece or worse. Nobody in America should be paid to live here, single parents who work part-time jobs, receive child support and get a huge tax kickback from claiming these dependents is just plain wrong.
Affluent members of this country owe it back to America to pay a higher tax rate than the single parent with three kids. It’s time for all of us to respect and appreciate how good we all have it here in America and embrace the opportunity to help this country and do our duty as citizens and get us back on track to being the number one economy and best country in the world. Each of us needs to do our part and stop crying and moaning.
