Majority leader [Sen.] Harry Reid is delusional. His latest sputtering outrage is that a budget bargain will not be struck without a tax increase. He states that “Americans, including the rich, are willing to pay more in taxes.” Reid goes so far as to state that “they want to pay more”!
I am not sure what mental patient he got his information from, but I know of NO ONE who wants their taxes increased, except perhaps the people who don’t pay any to start with.
Those of us imprisoned here in Illinois are regularly gang-raped by almost every single unit of government with the authority to raise taxes. Those of us on fixed incomes are force-fed an increasingly restricted diet of less money for our daily needs, and more money for an insane socialist state government determined to drain our every penny for “the poor,” or to maintain a bureaucracy built to turn poor lawyers into rich lawyers.
I am one American who says “enough.” No more tax increases. Live with the money you have already stolen from us, or cut services … starting with your own lavish salaries and taxpayer-funded lifestyles of the rich and famous.
P.S. If there are any TAXPAYERS out there clamoring to pay more of your hard-earned money to the socialists, please speak up. I don’t believe you exist.
