SCHOOL SUPPLIES NEXT YEAR,
MUCH LESS COLLEGE TUITION?
Keep this in mind when you vote in November for new school board members, legislators, and anybody else who can levy taxes. What a bunch of anti-family, anti-education tax increases we are going to see! Do not vote for anybody who ISN'T talking about the urgent need to cut taxes and government spending, STAT, and to reverse these horrendous increases.
Imagine how hard it is going to be to save for your children's college educations now. The Democratically-controlled Congress and Democratic Party President have set in place these tax increases on you, starting Jan. 1:
-- Increase of income taxes; for example, the 35% tax bracket zooms up to 39.6%
-- New tax on the value of your health-care benefits
-- Loss of deductions for tuition, student loans and interest payments, as well as health savings accounts
-- Capital gains tax zooms up from 15% to 20%
-- Dividends tax zooms up from 15% to 39.6%
-- Death tax returns; that's 55% tax after the first $1 million in an estate, which these days, isn't all that doggone much
-- Child tax credit is cut in half, to $500
-- Marriage penalty tax is back
-- Dependent-care and adoption tax credits gone
We elected a very liberal president, and too many liberals locally. So, we are getting higher taxes to fulfill the pipe dreams of these people. Property taxes have already gone up $120.00 on a $150,000 home for Omaha residents. The City Council and left-wing Mayor of Omaha talk of little but tax increases. They will learn, as Herbert Hoover did the hard way, that one of the worst things to do is to raise taxes during a recession. Only tax cuts will stimulate the economy and increase tax revenues.Post a Comment
