no more taxes more taxes


when i do our budget for the year
i figure out how much we will have in income
i do a budget to fit our spending to fit that budget
no credit card debt no borrowing money to live on

at the end of the year
we live within that budget
we have accumulated no more debt

thats the way it seems most financial folks recommend
that you do

now this new tax bill thing
i read about it in the left media and the right media and
the in between media
how can they all say three different things

when i read that stuff
i get real blurry eyed
i get vertigous
i get to where i cant concentrate
i get to where i cant even think

i have tried to put our income into the proposal to see
how it would affect us
you know how you feel if you are so tired you cant think
thats how i feel when i try to figure it out

all i know is that i want to pay my fair share of taxes
not more than that
at the end of the day
i dont want our country to have this big pile of debt

all seem to agree though
at the end of the rainbow for the new tax bill
there is a pile of debt
$1.5+-trillion of it

none of us should accept this

it just seems
like they are hiding something
this carrot is being offered us
a tax cut for the middle class

what i want to know is what will
bill gates pay jerry jones pay the koch brothers pay
donald trump pay those millionaire congress folks pay
those millionaire athletes pay

what will a couple who are both working pay
what will a struggling mom with a kid pay
what will a retired grandparent pay

for me
what would i have paid in my prime
what will i pay now

now i am all for simplifying the tax code
make sure we all pay our share
make sure that those richer than most of us
they should pay more
i think most of us agree with that

when i look at the tax bill
it just doesnt smell right

i am sure if it was the democrats doing a bill
it probably wouldnt smell right either
they tend to go too far the other way

if it looks like a rat smells like a rat
its probably a rat

this new tax bill
the odor is there
