$3.5 trillion Federal Budget will cost each household $30,400 for the year, $2500 per month.
Do not be fooled, you pay it, not the rich; whether you pay it directly in taxes and fees or by a lower standard of living. So think again when you vote for those who say the budget and spending do not matter or that we need to "invest" aka spend more.
Politicians promise you a fantasy land, that they can make your life golden by decree. Raise your pay, give you education, health care, retirement, cheap housing, easy credit and protect you from the evils of the greedy businessman.
In reality they can do nothing of the sort. To give you anything they have to take something from you, do not be fooled when they say they will take it from the rich, the rich get it from you, in the end it always comes from you. Politicians point at the rich guy as they pick your pocket. They are selling you an illusion that does more harm than good, because in the process they disrupt the free flow and balance of the market causing unintended consequences.
Politicians that promise to fix your life by taxing the greedy rich to cover the cost are really the sleaziest of middlemen that are selling you pixie dust while they take their cut, which is power.
The truth is this: If you find yourself feeling underappreciated or underpaid with no recourse in sight do not look for a politician to give you what the market will not.
To fix your problem the most powerful thing you have is your feet, you must be willing to walk. You must be willing to find a new job or move if necessary.
