Tax time has come and gone. And once again the bloodsucking weasels in Washington got what they wanted — our blood, in the form of taxes.
And once again, I, a humble American middle-class taxpayer, didn’t get what I wanted. We never really get what we want, but I wanted something that wouldn’t cost the federal government a dime of revenue:
All I wanted was a simple tax law.
Call it the Kass Law of Fair and Honest Taxation.
This law has nothing to do with not paying taxes, or having my taxes reduced or skipping out on my fair contributions to our great society that we pay for.
We’ll pay. Everybody pays. I promise.
So if you’re one of those angry George Soros-funded activists of the political left, please don’t clench your black-gloved fists in rage and beat my face to a pulp in the name of denying me free speech. And please don’t set both of your turgid left thumbs to work on Twitter to denounce me for being a white male, or some other such illegal and dangerous creature, and demand I be fired from my day job.
All I wanted is a tax law that would be fair to all, offering dignity and honor to every American, rich or poor or in the middle. All I wanted was a tax law that would treat everyone equally, the hideously wealthy, who probably should be boiled into soup, and the poor who don’t pay taxes and everyone in between.
This law would not, I repeat NOT demand that I get a break or you get a break. Under my law, nobody gets a tax break.
And it’s not a complicated law that requires armies of tax lawyers and politically wired consultants to find or carve out hidden loopholes. This isn’t that kind of law.
Here is the law. The Kass Law of Fair and Honest Taxes goes like this:
Everyone must pay the tax the federal government in its divine wisdom has decided we must pay. And everyone must file their taxes on the specified day in April decreed by our federal rulers in the great federal city, where I hear at one nearby restaurant they sell cocktails for $1,000 because the weasels that live large in Washington are on expense accounts and can afford it.
All the Kass Law of Fair and Honest Taxes mandates is that, instead of having the feds withhold money from our paychecks throughout the year, we all write a check for the full amount we owe on the same day. That way, taxpayers would feel the true bite of how much they’re paying.
One day, one tax, write the check, shut up and thank God you’re an American already. That’s the first part. The second part is this:
Once an American citizen has his or her receipt from the government clerk — handed out the minute we pay our taxes — there is another aspect to the Kass Law of Fair and Honest Taxes.
And this is the really fair part.
Just as we’re feeling the pinch of paying our taxes in full, we go over to our polling places and vote on federal offices, for Congress and for president. And since it would only be fair to have the state and…
