WEB Notes: This information comes from the BLS (Bureau of Labor and Statistics), that would be an arm of your own US government. Their numbers, not mine, not anyone elses. How sad is this?…
To think you dole out more of your hard earned money to the government than you even spend for food and clothing.
Let’s think about this for a moment…
We are taxed on our pay checks through state, federal and other taxes.
The money that has already been taxed is taxed again when we purchase food and other items through sales tax.
The money that has been taxed is taxed again when we purchase a vehicle, new or used, in addition to registration fees that are supposed to fix our roads.
Of course in places where I live the roads are horrible. But that is a side issue, let’s stay focused.
When we fuel up our vehicles we are taxed yet again on money that has already been taxed and the tax is again to help fix our broken roads.
Are you seeing a trend here? You are taxed over and over again on money that was already taxed.
Let’s talk about that used vehicle for a moment.
If I sell a truck to eagleflyfree he is going to pay tax. When he sells it to Richard, Richard is going to pay tax even though it has already been taxed.
Of course Richard knows it is worn out by now so he sells it to JackBolin who of course pays tax on a broken down truck. While I am joking around here I think you get the point. What a racket!
Then we have our businesses that are taxed, we are taxed to go hunting and fishing, etc. I could go on and on, but I am running out of breath at this point.
In the end what do you get for paying all that tax?
We send our men and woman off to die in foreign lands all in the name of globalism.
We support the murder of innocent babies.
We support organizations such as the Southern Poverty Law Center.
We support a government who embraces illegal immigration which puts extra toll on our infrastructure which in turn makes our taxes go even higher.
It is a vicious cycle and one we obviously are not going to win.
I hope you understand our Father does not operate this way.
He does not tax those who follow Him.
He Loves them.
When you put in work for God, it lasts forever.
Americans on average spent more on taxes in 2016 than they did on food and clothing combined, according to data released this week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The same data also shows that in three years—from 2013 to 2016—the average tax bill for Americans increased 41.13 percent.
In 2016, according to BLS, “consumer units” (which include families, financially independent individuals, and people living in a single household who share expenses) spent more on average on federal, state and local taxes ($10,489) than they did on food ($7,203) and clothing ($1,803) combined ($9,006).
