Say no to new taxes, force government efficiency | Letter
“We the People” have said before, “No state income tax.” All taxes tax ALL the people. Taxes become operating expenses of business.
The business incorporates ALL expenses into prices. So, though you don’t see the tax, you’ll see higher prices. Taxes cause inflation further stymying the economy. Taxes make it harder for business to succeed. Taxes cause unemployment.
All taxes tax the poor. Taxes on business tax the poor more than direct taxes. Taxes add to a business’ cost base, increasing the margin of profit. A $1 tax on business becomes $1.20. A $1 tax to the poor is just $1.
Our Democrat-controlled government plans to implement a “new Tax,” a state income tax and host of other “new” taxes in addition to the high taxes you already pay! How much will you take? How much can we take? Democrats do not want efficiency and do not want to stop spending your money.
Some taxes are necessary, but where does it end? If government would become efficient, less tax would be needed. Government inefficiency costs us our hard earned money.
Government never stops wanting more. Say no to new taxes! Say no to all taxes to force government efficiency.
