    Before Taxing More

    There should be accountability for the taxes we already pay.

    There should be accountability for the tax cuts that Trump gave over a trillion bucks of our national treasure away to the rich and large corps for having done nothing and our getting nothing in return. As Trump said to his friends "You all just got a lot richer,".

    Again it is time we had a balanced budget amendment with some real teeth in it
    where we could not spend more then we take in except in time of war or a really deep recession / depression
    and have a 1% sales tax that would be used ONLY to pay off the debt and when that is paid off it would be suspended and could only be reinstated if we had another because of a recession / depression
    and everybody would pay this sales tax and there would be no exceptions not be deductible on fit
    even large Corps would have to pay this sales tax
    everybody got some benefit from running up the debt so everybody should pay this sales tax to pay it off
    Have a nice day

    No money form the national treasure was ' given' to anybody but people on the lowest end of the income spectrum.

    Ok paying off owed money is always a good thing but not getting back in debt is better. Why would you give tax cuts to anyone when you owe money. Especially to the wealthy? We the people should know what are government State or Fed on the budget, including subsidies and loopholes. Pay offs and kick backs. Republican or Democrat. They should all be held Accountable. Before I give them more money.

    Congress critters are accountable to their state/district voters. If deficit spending did not get them re-elected (achieve political success) at a rate of over 90% then they might consider ending that practice. Until then, you can rest assured that they will continue to do what has proven to be so politically successful.

    Most of the lower income people got a raise though their states raising the minimum wage or though their companies giving them more money on a salary income but working them 2x the hours. If you do the math most of them are only making about $10 an hour with no time in a half. Average it out and it sounds like everyone is doing better. Not to mention when the ones supplying everything finds out that people got a raise or a tax cut and the price goes up.
