Certain lawmakers have a bad habit of splitting the American people into two groups when talking about quality of life, jobs, retirement, health care, and taxes. In a new House Budget Committee blueprint, lawmakers have worked to enrich very wealthy at the expense of everybody else.
The man who recently tried to silence workers at their jobs, Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price, dreamed up the idea that working people should shoulder the cost of enormous budget cuts in order to subsidize the activities of his wealthy pals.
Is this budget blueprint for you? Answer "yes" or "no" to the questions below:
If you answered "yes" to the majority of questions, then congratulations - you're a normal, hardworking American trying to make a better future for yourself and your country. If you answered "no" you're one of the few people this budget will actually benefit.
Rep. Price's budget blueprint seems to affirm a quote by late businesswoman and tax cheat Leona Helmsley who famously said that "only the little people pay taxes."
While you're hoping for a meager refund after you file your taxes on April 15, U.S. corporations are holding $2.1 trillion in profit outside the United States to avoid paying their own taxes. In fact, fifteen Fortune 500 companies paid no taxes at all last year. Some even got money refunded by the government! We'd say it was almost criminal, but it seems those who make the laws are acting as accomplices.
