Democrats sweet sounding name can’t hide the stink of this bill!
Immediately upon reading this people are taken in by the thought of abolishing the dreaded Income Tax Law. However, before you go swooning over this proposal and lend your support for this bill you should keep something in mind. Why would the federal government, which runs solely off of the income it collects from its citizens, kill the one thing that allows it to operate? It wouldn't and that is where the "Trojan Horse" aspect of this tax comes into play. Just look at what this tax would entail:
Amends the Internal Revenue Code to impose a 1% fee, offset by a corresponding nonrefundable income tax credit, on transactions that use a payment instrument, including any check, cash, credit card, transfer of stock, bonds, or other financial instrument. Defines "transaction" to include retail and wholesale sales, purchases of intermediate goods, and financial and intangible transactions.
Ask yourself this question: How many "transactions" that would fall under this particular definition are you involved with every day? 10, 20, 30? Once you realize what this will mean you start to get the picture of what this is.
