    Democrats Want to Tax Your ATM Withdrawals

    Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.) has introduced Davisís dream legislation. It would charge a penny for every dollar of your money drawn from an ATM machine. That would then beg the question ó why put your money in a bank if you are going to get taxed merely for the right to access your money.
    With what Democrats are planning, that mattress as an option is looking better every day.

    So one person introduces stupid legislation and suddenly it's attributed to "democrats?"

    I suppose I could spend my day perusing the internets for every stupid bill to come down the pike, but I'd rather spend my time and energy on those that actually have a chance of coming to fruition.

    DEMOCRATS are discussing taxing internet usage, higher rates for gasoline for low-mileage vehicles, ATM withdrawals, etc.

    Basically, if you have the nerve to apply yourself, save money, and not be reliant on the government, DEMOCRATS believe you should face the consequences.

    is his name really Chaka Fattah?
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    You do know that repeating RW talking points doesn't make them true, right?

    The right cries about taxes and then they cry about their grandchildren getting saddled with debt....they don't have any actual solutions to the problems of this country. They just like to cry and whine and say, "No" a lot.

    If your head is that firmly planted in the sand, there's no helping you.

    You did witness the $1 trillion stimulus plan with money we never had in the first place, didn't you? Who conjured that up?

    Many of those on the right DO have answers, Tennessee Rain. They all have one thing in common. STOP SPENDING. What solutions does the LEFT have? More revenue? Yeah, that'll do it. Not.

    The ATM tax doesn't sound like a good idea but this does...

    But wait . . . it’s gets better. They’re back to wanting to tax the internet too.

    House Energy and Commerce Communications Subcommittee Chairman Rick Boucher (D-Va.) has introduced legislation to allow retail sales taxes to be levied on internet purchases.

    So instead of being pro-growth to reduce the deficit or pro-job creation, the Democrats have fallen back into being your typical tax and spenders.
    I can't think of a good reason why you shouldn't pay sales tax on something you bought online. It will help local stores that actually have rent and electricity bills stay in business while producing revenue.

    Not getting into a Code Pink argument, sorry.

    Sometimes you've got to stand up and defend yourself. Some prefer the fetal position. Nuff said.
