I can't believe it at times. Doesn't anyone know how easy it would be to take all of the problems away from Medicare and Social Security? (problems that are way overblown) It's simple, you raise taxes. It really is that simple. But, you say we are overtaxed already? Not even close! America ranks somewhere in the middle of industrialized countries when it comes to taxation. And if you don't like taxing yourself, how about fixing all of the loopholes that allow about 70% of all corporations in this country to pay no tax at all. taxes. Do you have any idea as to how much money that would be? I don't know, but I feel like it ought to be a substantial number. But, back to taxes for you and me; we need to pay taxes to pay for all of the things we want. Gosh, that's simple. If we see that taxes are going to squeeze us a little, we should first look at how that money is being spent and how well our Representatives are doing in their job of safeguarding our tax money. Again, that's simple. That's Finance 101; it's what we do with our own finances. Or should. But what are they doing with that tax money? We don't have clue. We don't even know our Representatives name. So we're easy victims when the kooks and idiots start ranting and raving about the impending peril of 'socialism' if we should want to give ourselves a break with the 'Public Option' in health care. Please, Lord, save us from ourselves…
