Americans Spend More on Taxes Than Food and Clothing Combined

Government Taxation Cop and Tax Man

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).

  1. Taxes go up, and the government grows in size; however, when taxes go down, the economy grows in size. Why? Simple. When Americans have more cash in their pockets, they spend it on goods and services; and this spending creates even more jobs; which in turn, gives more people spending money; etc, etc..Pretty simple, right? However, we do not see government embracing this concept. They work not for you, nor do they care. They obey the 6th kingdom run by the bad fig; and the bad fig, I think it’s safe to say, hates Christians. So, by not allowing Christians to be in charge of government policy, we the people can expect even more increases in taxes, poverty, and perversion: which is exactly what the children of Satan want to bring into our lives – through our sellout politicians!

  2. and also, we are taxed on inheritance, which had also already been taxed and paid by whomever owned it before us. Supposedly, it’s the Congress (etc) who we elect that taxes us so they get around the fact that taxes pay for things that I don’t vote for (planned un-parenthood abortions for example). Those do not “serve” the population/people as a whole, such as armed services/roads, etc). What a goat rope–

  3. Is that taxation without representation? time for another “Tea Party”?
