“Where are my checks?” This is what millions of Americans, including myself are asking. We check our mailboxes daily, we check our bank accounts daily and yet, they never seem to arrive. We don’t think of it as a “tax” or a “penalty”, but merely a “mandate” issued by American citizens who are just trying to “live the American Dream”.
We see the “rich” people like the President and First Lady, The Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Harry Reid, Senator Nancy Pelosi, Mr. Van Jones (who hates capitalism, yet is always promoting his latest book), Micheal Moore, Francis Fox Piven, Rev. Al Sharpton, Warren Buffet, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Jimmy Hoffa Jr., Richard Trumka, and Hilary Clinton (not former President Clinton, just his wife) stating that the “rich” need to “pay their fair share” and we need “social equality” so the poor don’t suffer anymore.
Well, it is time to be the leaders they claim to be or shut up! They need to pay their fair share and shed some of that wealth or shut up! Start writing us our checks so we can all be a little more “equal”!
We do NOT want checks from the federal government. We want our checks to be written out from their own “personal” accounts. We don’t want the taxpayers (us) to foot the bill, this is their idea, it is these people that are pushing this agenda, therefore, we want them to pay us directly. If they wrote a check out to me for $50 each week, times each of them that equals $700 per week, times 52 weeks, that equals a total of $36,400 a year.
That is pocket change for most of them and still does not get me anywhere near “middle class” (which is their newest class warfare campaign). This still leaves me “poor”, and as both Democratic Senate Candidate Elizabeth Warren and President Obama have stated “you didn’t earn it by yourself, it was other people that made you rich”.
Then, I have to pay state and federal income earnings tax on this money (which I am certain is a tax write off for all of them) and then I will have to “buy” insurance from an exchange because of the NOT-SO “Affordable” Healthcare Act. So in the end it comes out to be around $19,000 per year. This is a far cry from being “equal” or even “middle class” according to today’s standards.
Do all of us Americans that have been listening to their rhetoric for the last couple of years need to file “class action” lawsuits to get our fair share? Do they need our addresses? We are just trying to understand the delay, we have been more than patient and they just keep talking about it and not actually doing it. They need to be leaders for the cause, set examples for all the other rich people to follow, it is their idea after all.
The only other possible explanation is if their true agenda is to keep the poor people down as “dependent slaves” of the federal government. Hmm . . .
