Our Taxes Just Shot Back Up Again

Many of us seemingly got a tax cut in December. But already our taxes have shot back up again — way up:

The true measure of the government’s fiscal burden on the people is spending, not taxes. Every dollar spent by the government must be raised somehow — by taxes present or future. …

In that sense, the Republican Congress and president increased taxes on the American people by more than $500 billion in a spending deal Friday. The law lifts discretionary budget caps by nearly $300 billion in 2018 and 2019 and adds over $200 billion of other spending on top. The magnitude is significant. It equates to over 6 percent of the federal budget and over 1 percent of economic output. It costs significantly more than Obamacare annually. And the bill pushes the budget deficit above $1 trillion in 2019. Worst of all, the deal sets a higher baseline from which all future spending will be negotiated. The total cost could be fivefold or tenfold or more.

Good thing Democrats didn’t inflict this. I would have to go back to harping on the Cloward–Piven strategy to deliberately destroy America by spending it to death. Since those responsible have an R instead of a D after their names, everything is copacetic. Fiscal sanity won’t matter again until they are out of power — which they will be soon if voters can’t tell them apart from Democrats.

On a tip from KirklesWorth.

    How Cloward and Piven would react if some folks thanks them by dropping some “road apples” on their tombstones instead of flowers?

  • Mr. Freemarket

    This is the problem when you don’t elect fiscal conservatives.

    “Every dollar spent by the government must be raised somehow.” Well yes and easily if you can understand how. It’s done by a secret trick called borrowing and printing ‘money’. Back to introductory Economics with you.

    Fiscal policy is a crap shoot. Increased productivity and consumer spending have historically resulted in more money flowing into the treasury. If it works under Trump, the increase may be sufficiently large to make future tax increases unnecessary. Fingers crossed.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    How wonderful to be able to tax the population without raising taxes. It’s like magic.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Increases in spending by government act as a drag on the economy, whether there is increased productivity or not. More spending = bigger government. Is that what you want?

  • Mr. Freemarket

    And how do you feel when it is President Trump that is proposing additional government spending?

  • Chayal Boded

    The simple truth, and fix for all this over-spending, over-taxing the tax slaves in this country is plainly spelled out here: http://losthorizons.com/The16th.htm and Mr. Hendrickson’s book; “Cracking the Code: The Fascinating Truth About Taxation in America” and his website losthorizons.com Please, for the sake of and future of the country, go and read for yourselves. The “income tax” ONLY falls on federal privileged activities and on federal “employees.” Everyday average workers and and their earnings are NOT subject to federal taxation. Period, Full stop. For more, read the supplied links. If you love your family and country, do it for them.

    I have no real hope for the US Government as it stands now. I just keep coming back to this:

    “The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies… is a foolish idea. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.”
    ― Carroll Quigley

  • Interestingly enough…

    Feds Collect Record Taxes in First Month Under Tax Cut; Run Surplus in January

    https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/terence-p-jeffrey/feds-collect-record-taxes-first-month-under-tax-cut-run-surplus

    How did that happen? (Probably because of how high Obama & the Democrats jacked up taxes while we weren’t looking.)

  • Yeah that is one of his flaws… unless… did you hear what he was telling the states? That they will get the money… if they get the permits. IN other words they’re telling states like California to get off their ass and get out of the way of progress or the money won’t go to them. And despite claims to the contrary, California gets a lot of government cheese.

  • All the inflation that Obama & the Democrats (and the complicit Fed) built into the system is likely to hit during Trump’s time and no doubt they will blame him for it.

  • And when fiscal conservatives you did elect decide they aren’t any more once in office.

    hey if we keep going until the debt is more the the GNP of the planet maybe we get a do over?

  • take a deep breath this is old news and your tax are not going back up. Liuke all things Trump…wait for it. He never said he was going to balance the budget jn his first year. But he has cut billions in waste and redundancy and he is no where near done

  • What? Look up harding/coolidge and treasurer andrew mellon

  • I don’t care who you send to DC, they cannot roll the govt back to their Constitution limits, it would take super majorities in both houses and the Presidency. Take your State back from the ground up, starting with your schools

  • Mr. Freemarket

    And then again, President Trump never pretended to be a fiscal conservative. He likes the government to spend money.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Indeed.
