It is amazing how many people want our money.
The Federal and State Governments – depending on where you live – take our money and give it away like there is no tomorrow. As this article suggests, we are treated like an ATM.
And, in these financially difficult times, what does the Government do with the money the take from us?
First, they bail out various financial institutions to prevent them from failing, with Citigroup being the latest. Then, we have the Big 3 Auto Makers asking for their chunk of the pie. Now, we have California and Ohio asking for a chunk of the Federal Pie since what they are taking is apparently not enough.
I favor the tax cut. With a tax cut, I get to keep more of my money with every paycheck. This will give me some breathing room in my budget. A stimulus check will give me a one-time chunk of money that does not help my month-to-month budget.
Let us keep more of our money!
