The View From 1776

No More Free Lunches From Liberal-Progressives

A pretty good argument can be made that taxes ought to be raised significantly - on lower to middle income groups. People who pay no taxes at all and even get “refunds” of taxes they haven’t paid will naturally vote for politicians who promise them handouts at someone else’s expense. 

Liberal-progressives’ destroying the nation’s future to buy votes is a truly damnable form of corruption.

  1. A pretty good argument can be made that government extortion ought to be cut significantly.

    The socialists' pet regressive income extortion scheme, when it was imposed in 1912, was accompanied with lavish promises that the top rate would never reach 9%, and that only the most wealthy would be impacted at all by it. There's even Biblical support for the notion that total government taxes and fees should be limited to 10% (with similar amounts going to religion and charity).

    In fact, those earning less than 150% of the median income were exempt. IOW, from the beginning, the vast majority of the US population was not to be subjected to it. (Of course, all such promises were swept aside once the leftists found a sufficient crisis/excuse.)

    See an image of the original form and a stab I've taken at adjusting the various rates and brackets by CPI:
