Nearly all Americans agree that the tax code needs improvement, and progressives and conservatives identify many of the same guiding principles when discussing tax reform. This report discusses some aspects of good tax policy that are endorsed on both sides and then identifies specific proposals for which consensus appears to be within reach. These areas of bipartisan agreement would raise revenue by a total of $1.4 trillion over 10 years. Additionally, this report identifies expanding the Earned Income Tax Credit, or EITC, as an opportunity to provide bipartisan tax relief to working families that would cost the federal government $84 billion over 10 years.
Fellow Freedom Loving Americans it is this type of discussion that is so dangerous. Again the Marxist/Progressive takes a concept and twist it into their idea of having all income become centralized and then they can share as they deem to be fair. The tax code does need improvement. However, it should not be changed to raise one additional dollar of revenue for a wasteful and bloated bureaucracy. All taxes should be lowered and rather than raising $1.4 trillion, spending should be cut by $2.8 trillion.
What has been proven in the past is that if the government taxes less and spends less, a renewed and vibrant economy flourishes. Unemployment is much lower, poverty is lowered, real earnings increase for all, and the satisfaction of the country is greatly increased when we have the government taking less and controlling less. Self-reliant and independent people are more satisfied and make much better citizens.
If you take a look at Venezuela today you see what happens as government takes more and controls more. Bureaucrats and government officials do not make decisions on efficiency and creativity. They make what are called prudent man decisions. This means just keep doing what will not be criticized regardless of outcome. It has never failed that the more government is imposed, the less efficient are the results.
