Your Tax Dollars At Work
Our politicians are burning your tax dollars by giving the unemployed and themselves insane benefits and salaries. Are you aware of the extravagant unemployment benefits and politician pensions shown below?
Obscene Pay For Unemployed and Politicians!
Read the figures and then ask yourself the questions…do we need to change our tax system so that our politicians are not in control of all our tax dollars? Do we need to stop paying people more to be unemployed? Do our politicians really earn all of these benefits that American citizens do not receive? Is there something really wrong here?_______________________________________________________________________
THE WORK ETHIC WE INHERITED GROWING UP HAS FALLEN PREY TO THE ‘WELFARE’ SYSTEM
The Cato Institute released an updated 2013 study (original study in 1955) showing that welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job in 33 states and the District of Columbia. Even worse, welfare pays more than $15 per hour in 13 states. According to the study, welfare benefits have increased faster than minimum wage. It’s now more profitable to sit at home than it is to earn an honest day’s pay.
Hawaii is the biggest offender, where welfare recipients earn $29.13 per hour, or a $60,590 yearly salary, all for doing nothing.
Here is the list of the states where the pre-tax equivalent “salary” that welfare recipients receive is higher than having a job:
1.. Hawaii: $60,590
2.. District of Columbia: $50,820
3.. Massachusetts: $50,540
4.. Connecticut: $44,370
5.. New York: $43,700
6.. New Jersey: $43,450
7.. Rhode Island: $43,330
8.. Vermont: $42,350
9.. New Hampshire: $39,750
10. Maryland: $38,160
11. California: $37,160
12. Oregon: $34,300
13. Wyoming: $32,620
14. Nevada: $29,820
15. Minnesota: $29,350
16. Delaware: $29,220
17. Washington: $28,840
18. North Dakota: $28,830
19. Pennsylvania: $28,670
20. New Mexico: $27,900
21. Montana: $26,930
22. South Dakota: $26,610
23. Kansas: $26,490
24. Michigan: $26,430
25. Alaska: $26,400
26. Ohio: $26,200
27. North Carolina: $25,760
28. West Virginia: $24,900
29. Alabama: $23,310
30. Indiana: $22,900
31. Missouri: $22,800

34. South Carolina: $21,910
As a point of reference the average Middle Class annual income today is $50,000, down from $54,000 at the beginning of the Great Recession. Hawaii, DC, and Massachusetts pay more in welfare than the average working folks earn there. Is it any wonder that they stay home rather than look for a job. Time for a drastic change. America is virtually bankrupt.
Are we Nuts or what? How do we un-do this type of stupidity on the part of Americans? This is crazy!
Salary of retired US Presidents
$180,000 FOR LIFE
Salary of House/Senate….
$174,000 FOR LIFE This is stupid.
Salary of Speaker of the House ….
$223,500 FOR LIFE! This is really stupid.
Salary of Majority/Minority Leader
$193,400 FOR LIFE! Ditto last line.
Average Salary of a teacher ..
Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN AFGHANISTAN ..
Think about this.
Nancy Pelosi will retire as a Congress Person
at $174,000 Dollars a year for LIFE.
She has retired as SPEAKER at $223,500 a year.
PLUS she will receive an additional $193,400 a year as Minority Leader.
That’s $803,700 Dollars a year for LIFE including FREE medical
which is not available to us … the taxpayer She is just one of the hundreds of Senators and Congress that float in and out every year!
I think we found where the cuts should be made!
If you agree ….. pass it on, I just did.
The INCOME TAX CODE and the 16TH AMENDMENT make it possible to collect taxes on your income and for the politicians to decide how to waste it. Virtually every politician in office in Washington becomes extremely wealthy as a result of the INCOME TAX CODE while working with the LOBBYISTS that are paid $300,000+ annual salaries to motivate the politicians to vote for things that make them very wealthy. Is this what you want from your government? Is this what you want done with your tax dollars?
Here’s how we can stop this madness!
INSIST THAT YOUR POLITICIANS PASS THE FAIR TAX …A HOUSE BILL 98 ENTERED ON THE FLOOR OF THE HOUSE IN 1998. Read Neal Boortz…co-author of this Bill… email here
INSIST THAT ALL POLITICIANS HAVE TERM LIMITS OF NO MORE THAN TWO TERMS OF OFFICE.
INSIST THAT YOUR STATE LEGISLATURES PASS THE CONVENTION OF STATES BILLS WHICH ALLOWS STATES TO LIMIT THE POWER OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
ELECT CONSTITUTIONAL CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATES TO OFFICE IN ALL POSITIONS SO THAT WE CAN PROTECT OUR COUNTRY FROM THE TYRANNY, WASTE, INEFFICIENCY AND CORRUPTION THAT WE HAVE NOW.
