These Assholes Want To Make It More Complicated
” width=”300″ height=”293″ />I’m incredibly frustrated. Doesn’t anybody in Washington get it? Our economy is sputtering, our national morale is plunging, work ethic seems to be disappearing and everyone is so caught up in the game that they can’t see what’s happening. Regular people are being prevented from doing business with each other without massive government burdens. Anyone who has tried to start a business recently understands that the tax code is a complete train wreck. Republican leadership and the Democrats agree that it isn’t complicated enough because some of us are still making it through the cracks. If we want to spur real economic growth in this country, we need to empower people to implement their ideas by SIMPLIFYING THE TAX CODE. I’ve come to accept the idea of paying taxes; but we can’t have a real discussion about “fair” in this country because the code is so complicated.
I know this: the President’s proposals aren’t aimed at Tim Geithner’s friends on Wall Street or Obama’s friends in corporate America- they have teams of attorneys and lobbyists to get out of anything this corrupt Congress passes. No, it’s aimed directly at the tireless American entrepreneur because, despite their best efforts, we keep finding ways to compete with them. They don’t want you to start competing with them because they know that their weaknesses are glaring.
People are trying to figure out their tax burden and they need to know that all we are getting from the assholes in Washington is to make it more complicated. You want to have a discussion on taxes start by explaining every way that the government collects my money through taxation. I think “fair” would be the confiscation of about 20% of my income, but we can negotiate how much the government deserves when they can tell us how much they are taking.
When the national debate moves to taxes, we need to maintain message discipline. This is our STRONGEST ARGUMENT say it with me now:
SIMPLIFY, SIMPLIFY, SIMPLIFY and unleash the next generation of American dreamers!
