So she wishes we'd earn more so we can pay more?

Nancy, I've gone to some lengths to earn less. Much less. You and your sort are one of the reasons for that.

Tell you what: I'll promise to earn more, if you (and all your buddies) promise to go away and never come back. I don't even want a Christmas card. But I won't do it for the purpose of paying more.

And payroll tax? Whazzat?

Payroll tax? Is she talking about the SS (FICA) tax? Who knows? Does anyone really care what that lying sos says?

I think the "payroll tax" she's claiming the folks not paying taxes do pay, is actually the "employer portion" that the worker never sees. You know the fine the company pays for daring to employee someone.

I figure it's only a matter of time before they get around to addressing the "under-taxed because under-employed" demographic by just sending out final tax bills based on what the 'crats think you should have been able to earn. After all, you're just an grateful tax-evader if you choose not to have enough to tax. Hell, it works for divorce courts setting alimony/child support payments. And it's not much of a stretch at from where we're at already.

And then they can start sending out tax bills for the coming year(s) based on they think you're going to earn. Didn't get that promotion we projected? TS, it's your own fault, pay up.

I don't really know where this country is going to end up, but it's gonna be interesting (in the Confucian) sense to watch. By now, I'm just glad I don't have kids.
