Texas Man Writes IRS & Asks for Same Tax Leniency Treas.Sec Geithner and Dems Get Posted by Former Author on 11 March, 2009 at 9:28 am. 4 comments already! [DELETED BY AUTHOR] Formerly known as Skeptic says: March 11, 2009 at 9:44 am “and we cannot continue, especially in this economy, to have government pay for everything,” Can I quote him on that? Sounds like a good global statement to me. Spike says: March 11, 2009 at 4:43 pm This is something that maybe we should all consider come April 15th! eaglewingz08 says: March 11, 2009 at 7:40 pm I thought Congress had outlawed pole taxes and here’s NY trying to reimpose them. For shame. znix says: March 14, 2009 at 4:20 pm He is going to get a form letter stating to pay up. When he doesn’t, he’ll get audited and then slapped with fines and probably jail time. I’m not exactly a tax expert, but that letter is cute – and the IRS doesn’t give a hoot about cute. As far as democrats taxing.. May I laugh? The country went into a shithole over the last 8 republican years and why? They COULD have cut spending – like on the futile effort in Iraq. Funneled that money back to the people of the USA and done great things. Instead, the money went to the coffers of huge defense contract companies. And they managed to piss off people in Iraq, while getting nowhere politically there. Nice. And now we’re in a crisis? Because of something else..? No gentlemen. Democrat or Republican, it doesn’t matter. It’s the SPENDING that needs to be controlled, regardless of who is in power. The republicans just made a mess of it, and the democrats are continuing the effort with all their earmarked pledges, 9000? Seriously.. Letting the federal reserve operate in secrecy doesn’t do wonders for the economy either. Whether you’re printing money, or stealing it from tax payers, it’ll still be costly in the long run. As far as taxes go. Other countries have excellent health care (for everyone) excellent social systems (for everyone) and free schooling (for everyone) – that is funded by taxes. Ask any of them, if they would really want it differently, and the majority will tell you it’s great that you don’t have to worry. The taxes, yeah they suck – but that’s the cost of having a great society. – Unlike the one in the USA where everything is set up to drain your pockets of cash.
