    Cory Booker, presidential hopeful, rolls out tax plan

    See Cory Booker unveils plan to cut taxes for half the country

    “Booker''s plan calls for expanding the EITC's benefits to higher incomes — from a maximum income of $54,000 to $90,0000 for married couples — and raising the maximum benefits as well. Joint filers could receive a 25 percent higher maximum credit, topping out at about $8,000 per year. The plan includes a bigger bump in benefits for childless workers, whose EITC payout is currently capped at about about $500, but would rise up to about $4,000 under Booker's plan.”

    The problem with Booker’s plan is, it makes no attempt to end the unconstitutional and oppressive Temporary victory tax of 1943 which began our federal government’s modern-day confiscation of working people’s earned wages.

    Let us not forget it was the Socialist Democrats who passed the 1943 "Victory Tax". Roosevelt’s 1943 "Victory Tax" expanded the “income tax” upon corporations and businesses to include a 5 percent “temporary” tax upon working people’s earned wages. And although the 16th Amendment was specifically, and intentionally sold as a way to tax “unearned income” as distinguished from earned wages, the temporary tax on working people’s earned wages was sold as a patriotic necessity in the war effort.

    But to this very day, Roosevelt’s Temporary Victory Tax, which robs the bread working people earned by the sweat of their brow, is still being collected, and its burden has constantly increased over the years, interfering with poor working people from accumulate wealth, and has forced millions upon millions of poor working wage earners into a state of poverty, and then dependency upon government for their subsistence ___ an outcome which is needed by corrupted political leaders to maintain a permanent and financially dependent underclass voting block!

    If Cory Booker and his fellow democrats were sincere about ending a tax system which benefits the supposedly rich and powerful, they would promote an end to the 1943 temporary Victory Tax ____ ending a tax on working people’s earned wages, tips, salaries, etc. In its place, the would advocate a small [maybe one or two percent} luxury tax upon specifically selected articles classified as "articles of luxury" to make up the difference ___ taxing all those articles which “the rich and powerful” enjoy and the poorest among us only dream of enjoying. Of course, this kind of tax, a voluntarily paid tax upon articles of luxury voluntarily purchased, is the very kind of tax our founders considered as fair. In Federalist No 21 with regard to this type of tax we find:

    ”The amount to be contributed by each citizen will in a degree be at his own option, and can be regulated by an attention to his resources. The rich may be extravagant, the poor can be frugal; and private oppression may always be avoided by a judicious selection of objects proper for such impositions.

    It should also be noted that the use of this type of tax allows the market place to determine the limit of tax placed upon each article.

    ”It is a signal advantage of taxes on articles of consumption that they contain in their own nature a security against excess. They prescribe their own limit; which cannot be exceeded without defeating the end proposed, that is, an extension of the revenue. When applied to this object, the saying is as just as it is witty, that, "in political arithmetic, two and two do not always make four .'' If duties are too high, they lessen the consumption; the collection is eluded; and the product to the treasury is not so great as when they are confined within proper and moderate bounds. This forms a complete barrier against any material oppression of the citizens by taxes of this class, and is itself a natural limitation of the power of imposing them.” ___ Fed. No. 21

    Hamilton’s reasoning was proven correct when Congress decided to place an outrageous 10 percent "luxury" tax on a number of articles under the “Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990”. The outrageous 10 percent luxury tax, particularly on boats, was found so onerous that sales dropped dramatically and the tax was repealed the following year! Of course, Congress, with its insatiable desire to spend money, does not like a tax system which is self-regulating ___ meaning regulated by our market place. Nor do Democrat Leaders like a tax system which allows working people to keep the bread they have earned, accumulate wealth, and participate in a free market, free enterprise system.

    So, when you hear the tax reform proposals offered by Democrat president hopefuls, keep in mind the wisdom of Thomas Jefferson:

    “…..with all these blessings, what more is necessary to make us a happy and a prosperous people? Still one thing more, fellow-citizens—a wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities“. Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address

    JWK

    Socialist democrats running for office will promise food on the table, free public housing, health care for all, guaranteed income, free college tuition, and other niceties by taxing the so called rich; and if by chance they ever do get political power because of such promises made, their socialist iron-fisted dependency will enslave the very fools who elected them.

    Hmmmm,


    I'm wondering if there is wide support for Booker's tax plan. Seems of little interest here.

    The Federal Reserve System of 1913 and the Sixteenth Amendment, also of 1913, have provided the necessary tools to spread the evil tentacles of federal capitalism into almost every corner of our once free market, free enterprise system

    Personally, I am more interested and concerned with the invasion of our country at the moment. Who is allowing and assisting that invasion. Not easily distracted with shiny objects meant to distract from what is happening at the moment.

    How about not giving illegal aliens any credits or tax refunds in YOUR plan!

    Trump dropped the ball on that one

    He did. Maybe unwittingly. Aside from that and getting back to federal taxation, as our founders intended, would help make illegal immigration less profitable.

    There are a number of pro illegal immigration groups who use our tax system to finance illegal immigrants. Some provide legal assistance to help keep them here, others provided resettlement assistance, and still other provide temporary housing ____ all financed through tax exempt groups. One of the groups, the Southern Poverty Law Center, has filed a number of actions to obstruct Trump's attempt to deal with the ongoing invasion of our border.

    Let us not forget how important federal taxation relates to illegal immigration!

    Trump ignored the immigration issue for months (didn't even talk about it) while he worked to get his tax package through. Now, he brags about that tax package. Why didn't he address those issues you mentioned?

    Why didn't Trump realize how important federal taxation relates to illegal immigration?

    Why ask me those questions? I have no idea what is in his mind.
