The only true "giveaways" are when people get money for doing nothing. I earned 100% of my GROSS income. All of it was mine. So when I get a write-off, it's still all my money.
I pay my mortgage with all my money. You want to stop the MID, then the gov't will just be taking more of my money.
Everything we earn is always ours. Of course there should be a price to pay for living in this country. We each owe it to one another to maintain what we have and what we've built.
And although I B&M about increases in taxes, I fully expect to pay more down the road. But to me, it's a matter of degrees. I sure as hell don't want to be paying $10k a year more taxes 5 years from now. Unless that equates to increased security when I retire. I wasn't brought into this world to keep the USA going and I sure won't be able to work until I'm 75.
I can not handle my town increasing my property tax & user fees, my state increasing various fees and taxes and my federal gov't taking a bigger chunk out of me year after year.
So if they're going to raise my taxes significantly, I'd like something in return. I can deal with another 2-3%/year without getting anything in return. But Doc, do not fuggn tell me it's gonna hurt...and hurt really bad...and then tell me I'll actually be worse after the operation.
That's my 2 cents anyway....
Maybe some don't see it that way.
