Worse than withholding…

Posted by taxguru on September 21, 2010

I’ve frequently commented on how the income tax withholding system shields people from their true tax costs and keeps them mellow about it. If everyone had to write actual checks for their income taxes, there would be much more of an uproar.

This story from the UK would be a huge step in the wrong direction if implemented here in the USA.

UK Proposes All Paychecks Go to the State First

While at first blush it may seem ridiculous to worry about this happening here, consider who are in charge of things in DC; a bunch of Marxists who consider everything to be the property of the imperial government.  I’m sure they’re studying this very technique right now and could start its implementation in the near future, if the November elections don’t go well for the Constitution and the DemonRats are allowed to remain in power..

Whose tax cuts are they?

Posted by taxguru on September 21, 2010

It’s been amusing to watch the posturing in DC over the soon to expire tax cuts.  When they are being portrayed as a bad thing, they are referred to as the Bush Tax Cuts and Tax Cuts for the Evil Rich.  When they are properly referred to as something good for the economy, they are being portrayed as the Obamao DemonRat Tax Cuts, as shown in this clip from the latest episode of NewsBusted

For those twisted folks who work and reside in the fairy tale land of DC, this supposedly makes sense. To those of us in the real world, it’s one more example of why we need to get rid of the career politicians and ignore the mainstream state controlled media.
