Local governments want massive tax hikes to cover the costs of the economic terrorism they extracted on the entire population. Cities like Nashville, Tennessee plan to hike property taxes as much as 34% to cover the costs of their terrorism.
Have you had enough yet? Because too many are still taking this on the chin. Historic job losses caused by government-mandated lockdowns that have fueled the downturn have also put the squeeze on city and state budgets. Washington sought to offset this with stimulus payments, additional unemployment benefits, business grants, and more, but now they want their money back in the form of massive tax hikes.
Any push to raise taxes too dramatically could hurt the economy even more, not to mention cause civil unrest. People are already living on the edge, and those lucky enough to still have jobs are living paycheck to paycheck. But, if the government can get away with it from a passive and sleeping public, they’ll do it.
There is no better description of what’s happening to Americans than terrorism. The fact that we are being terrorized by our own government in far more disastrous ways than Islamists could have possibly imagined should horrify everyone in this country. Places thought to be “safe havens” from liberal lunacy have become epicenters for theft and forcing the public to pay for their own enslavement.
In Texas, Dallas lawmakers were considering a massive property tax hike of as much as 8 percent but needed the city council to pass a measure allowing them to increase rates by more than 3.5 percent. In May, the resolution failed after a 12-3 vote, according to Fox News.
New York state lawmakers are pushing for income tax hikes for those who earn more than $5 million. In Seattle, a new measure approved by the City Council will add a tax on companies with at least $7 million in annual payroll. The “JumpStart Seattle” tax will tax businesses up to 2.4 percent on Seattle-based employees who earn more than $150,000. The bill specifically references the emergency conditions imposed by the pandemic. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy warned that if the state does not borrow more money, he would “have no choice but to raise property taxes,” according to NJ.com.
Have you finally figured it out? It’s not republican or democrat. These tax hikes span across both red and blue states. They are waging an economic war on us, and most Americans are rolling over and taking it, allowing these psychopaths to win. These people look down at the public and think of us as nothing more than tax cattle and we are doing little to show we are anything but.
