Now here is the kicker; all of this taxes is being paid by money that has already been taxed because your paycheck has been taxed.
When you sit back and really think about this, the fact that American citizens are paying this much in taxes every day, week, month, and year, there is a great deal of money going to the government in the form of taxes. I am talking in the millions and trillions and that is only for one week.
Where is all of this money going? The government debt continues to rise.
Solution? One set payment of taxes for each individual. Either take taxes from our paychecks or charge us taxes on other things but don't do both. I am all for supporting our country in the form of financial means. I have no problem with the idea of taxes, however I do have an issue with the fact that all of this taxes hinders my ability to feed and house my family. I have a job, I pay my taxes, now I am stating my 2 cents. What are your thoughts?
