WHO’S THE NEXT TAX VICTIM? Big Government is now coming for the Poor!


By Elois Zeanah

The THUMP, THUMP, THUMP of the big foot of government is heard in the distance – again!  This time big government is coming for yet more of your money to pay for health care.  They’ve soaked the rich to where numbers of the once-rich are dwindling.  So the big bully who survives by taking from others now has to move to new territory.  THUMP, THUMP, THUMP!  The giant government will this time – get this! — tax poor people more than rich people. 

Remember the poor people who voted for President Obama because he said he would give them free health care and other freebies and tax only the rich?   THUMP, THUMP, THUMP, the giant bully is on the move.  He has to be fed.  If nationalized health insurance works for Europe, it should work for all Americans.  If Europe uses the value-added tax (VAT) to help pay for socialized medicine, what’s wrong with European-level taxes for Americans?  After all, don’t we want to be like Europe?  THUMP, THUMP, THUMP, the Obama administration is hungry.  It’s on the prowl for another victim – an unsuspecting victim would be easiest.  Its ravenous appetite makes VAT deliciously appealing. 

Not to worry about the poor seeing through this trickery.  The Value Added Tax will not be transparent.  This essentially national sales tax will tax products in every stage of the production chain from manufacturing to delivery.  THUMP, THUMP THUMP!  As the product moves from manufacturer to wholesaler to retailer, the government is there to take a tax bite.  These taxes will of necessity be passed on to consumers.  Goods and services will cost more.  VAT will hit everyone, but being a regressive tax, it will burden the middle and low income more because they spend most of their income on goods and services. 

Wouldn’t this tax be contrary to what President Obama promised?  Of course!  But who’s to know?  Consumers will not blame Washington.  Washington will tell consumers to blame those greedy business people – just like those evil insurance companies are to blame for high health care prices.  The big bully is marching, but he won’t arrive until after the 2010 elections.  Can’t confuse the voters now, can we?  But we can use the time to mull more mischief as bully government lays the trap for the next victim.  You can’t blame him; he’s hungry and he’s got to be fed!  THUMP, THUMP, THUMP!
