|Taxes have and always will benefit our government. That’s why it’s there; there’s no
escaping it. Consequently, I have always hated it and chances are, I always will. Other than
going to jail, what can I do about it? Absolutely nothing. As the old adage goes, two things are
always a constant: death and taxes - no one can escape neither.
It seems with every tax day, several idiots with a microphone jumps up and yell about increased
taxes. As if all the commotion is going to change anything.
Of course, I respect anyone for making their voice heard, but this year of tax day screamers are
out of their stupid minds. Yep, it’s the tea badgers; again! And yes, they want to blame President
Obama, AGAIN! I believe often times, we just want to be heard, and again, I respect that, but I
will never support distorted facts.
The facts are that since President Barack took office, our federal income taxes are lower than the
past 50 years. (Compared to other States, Colorado is the 3rd lowest.)
|According to the impartial Associated Press, congress cut individual federal taxes for this year by about $173 billion
shortly AFTER President Obama took office. Associated Press also states “Americans pay less taxes this year despite
Tax Day rhetoric.”
The fact is, you are going to pay taxes. That’s just how it is. Even if you’re Brooke Shields, Julio Cesar Chavez, Sinbad
a politician, singer, and/or champion boxer, the man is coming for you.
We can scream at our television when Obama is making another of his many speeches. The fact is, we have that right.
No one hears us right? Well, I’m not so sure they don’t, but again, that’s just another one of my many conspiracies.
The fact is, President Obama created only a few tax credits such as ...
As I said, there are only a few and I am almost sure that any other government officials could do better, but have they?
Will they? I mean, honestly, there are tax credits if you work, tax credit if you
don’t work. There are tax credits if you buy a house or tax credits if you make that house energy efficient. Tax credits
for education, small businesses, and tax credits for small businesses that hire Vets. In addition, there are even tax credits
if you buy a car or even if you buy an electric car. Yep, all these few little ol' measly tax breaks all thanks to President
Now, most people that know me, are aware that I am the first to point out President Obama’s mistakes as well as the
first to eagerly give him kudos when he does what I assume is the right thing for our Country. I don’t know if he did the
right thing when cutting some of the space programs, but at this moment, I say it’s good. Additionally, I wholeheartedly
believe he did the right thing by cutting our missile defense. In my opinion, we must lead by example, because we will
NEVER smoke out the taliban and/or al qaeda. At least not in my lifetime, but I love to be proven wrong. (My ego is not
that far in advance and certainly will not be bruised.) But, I digress.
the truth. The facts remain that 95% of Americans received a tax cut thanks to
want, but the fact is, President Obama’s proposed spending of taxes are lower than
Reagan’s were in his first year in office. The fact is, it certainly did not help the nation
when Reagan lowered taxes in his first year in office but continued to raise them

federal taxes is at or near their lowest level in decades.
approximately $300 billion in tax cuts over 10 years.
Fact: approximately, $232 billion was in tax cuts for individuals.
When I hear these facts being distorted, I reflect on the following:
