In Praise of Taxes

 The next time you hear a very wealthy person threaten to lay off employees if their taxes are raised; go talk someone who’s already out of work.

They’ll likely tell you that they’d give their right arm to pay income taxes, because that would mean they actually have an income.

It’s all a matter of perspective.

Last week’s election made it clear that the many have not been hoodwinked into believing self-serving line of the privileged few.

Now Congress needs to get the message and pass a budget that includes both revenue hikes and spending cuts before the upcoming “fiscal cliff” deadline at the end of the year. If they don’t, and the country falls into an even deeper recession; more people will be out of work.

The only good news is, when the mid-term elections roll around two years from now; some of them may even be Congressmen.
