My fellow Americans,
Much has been made about the recent work tax increase. Articles from a lot of people who were understandably upset about the tax hike.
But the theme that ran through most of those articles was a vague one. Namely that the ‘eUS Government’ had raised the taxes. That they are evil, and are trying to bleed the common man of his hard earned money.
The ‘eUS Government’ generally refers to the Executive Branch. The President and his Secretaries. The other half of government is Congress. Typically referred to as: Congress.
Congress sets the tax policy for the country. Not the President, Vice President or any of the Secretaries. They certainly have opinions on the matter, and seek to influence Congress, but ultimately Congress makes the decisions however they see fit.
Congress controls the money. The Executive just spends it.
So instead of being vague about who raised your taxes, let’s be specific.
Fiscal Solvency Protection Act discussion thread. Follow that link and you can read about the discussion that took place prior to raising taxes.
Fiscal Solvency Protection Act vote thread. This is where Congress voted on the matter. The votes were as follows:
Melissa Rose: Yes
Josh Frost: Yes
stephen s: Yes
Mr. Swagg: Yes
The Mike: Yes
Jefferson Locke: No
Joseph J Craine: Yes
Leather Neck: No
John Largo: No
Darian Dracona: No
Vote passes 16-6.
I think that national discourse is a great thing. I love seeing articles discussing, debating and raging at things in the media. We need to do it more often, because ultimately it makes our country better.
But I dislike people using this vote as a political tool to try and push their anti-government agenda.
You don’t like the government. That’s great. I dislike a lot of them too. But this isn’t Oblige’s fault. Nor the Secretary of Defense’s. This is a Congressional matter and they voted the way they felt they needed to.
So. I’ve given you all of the information regarding this work tax increase. If you’re upset with the tax increase, then PM those actually responsible for it. Don't just pump out blanket statements about how anyone with a title is trying to stick it to you.
And take a few moments to read the threads that I posted. They are there for any and all to digest and to react to.
