Well, we all knew it was coming, right? A tax hike. According to a report from the non-partisan Tax Policy Center who studied Biden’s Build Back Better program, the middle class will see their taxes go up. They estimate around 30% of families will pay more. Let me put on my shocked face.
This should come as no surprise to anyone with half a brain. When the government spends a shit ton of money, somebody has to pay. That somebody is the American taxpayer. EVERY. TIME. This always includes the middle class. EVERY. TIME. There aren’t enough millionaires and billionaires to pay for this shit. And even if there were, they can afford to pay legions of tax lawyers to save their asses. So, the little guy is left holding the bag. EVERY. TIME.
So, here we go again. Americans are already dealing with inflation. Your money simply doesn’t buy you as much stuff as it did a year ago. Have fun with that one. Throw in the rising cost of gas and you’re looking at a giant tax increase for everyone with a car. Have fun with that one too. Now comes another twist of the knife. That promise that Joe made to not raise taxes on anyone making less than $400k a year? Well, shucks and golly! That wasn’t true at all!
