budget vote and tax reform? Who are we kidding??

Balancing the Budget in CONgress?  They certainly must be joking because nothing at all is ever balanced in CONgress or anywhere else you find gubmint crap.

All that really happens, every time this tax thing comes up, is the CONgressidiots lower a tax on one thing and raise a tax on another (usually a tax that's already too high).  The money they think they need has to come from somewhere, so they just massage the numbers until people aren't paying attention and then they sneak in a new tax on something, or a higher tax on something already existing, and people must pay it whether they want to or not.   Mind you, this is usually done using organizations with innocuous names or alphabet names - such as the PUC (public utilities commission) or the DOR (department of revenue).  See, innocuous sounding, right?  BUT . . .  just watch what happens.

For instance, our water prices just went up - AGAIN.  Not one thing has changed for the better with our City Finance stuff, but the prices just keep going up and up and up.  Garbage collection, recycle collection, sewer charges and water usage are all on one bill.  Not one thing about those services has changed in the past 10 years but the prices keep rising.  The City Fathers call it a user fee, but everyone in their right mind knows it's just another form of taxation without the least bit of representation or explanation to those of us PAYING the taxes.  We never see a result of any kind, just an increase without justification.  And then the "City stupids" proceeds to waste it on the most frivolous crap you can imagine.  This isn't going to stop.  It's only going to get worse.

pay Paul can always depend on
