To tax us on items we must us means when I purchase something I must have to keep my family warm or cool and fed the government is charging us every time we provide for our families.
Yes, I know we are not supposed to be taxed for food. But, beware, when the government intrudes upon us by seeking to legislate how much salt is in our food it will not belong that they will seek to pay to the salt csar or salt police with funds directly from food.
Finally, what is the government doing with the money they already have? Is the worlds largest bueracrocy know for fiscal control and getting the most bang for our bucks? The answer to that is a "gimme." I work for the second largest school district in the nation. Waste, mismanagement, poor financial choices, political placement of administrative positions, all marks of a government bureaucracy that demonstrate waste.
The government does not need or deserve more money. I agree with the tea party, we are "Taxed Enough Already!"
