How high can taxes go in the middle of the Covid Recession? Biden seems prepared to follow Cuomo in closing more small businesses.
Given this sobering view of the fiscal cliff, both political parties reveal their impotence on what is truly at stake – the viability long-term of the United States. Of course, being honest and stating that the problems will be deferred to the next budget and the next administration and the next generation as usual severely limits electability.
Maybe the best thing, to get to the real bottom line, is to go to the source. Why not ask your elected politicians – that favor and insist on raising taxes – how much they have donated to the IRS. Then ask they why. We’d love to hear the answers you get, if any.
We understand that there is a great deal that is unknown. We understand that there is a great deal in the hands of the Obama Administration (in case of failing to raise the debt ceiling). We understand that elected officials outside of Washington DC have little influence, and possibly even less information.
But we sought to understand what is underway. How residents may best be prepared and to remain confident that elected leaders are investigating plans to ensure their way of life. We continue to seek that.
