The U.S. Senate is back in session and the Congress returns today. I’m sure they are well rested and eager to get back to work at transferring what little wealth the poor and middle class have left into the coffers of the rich. And what has our champion Barbara Lee been up to? Well it would seem that she is actually a real go-getter. She wasn’t just sitting around on Spring Break. She was doing what a representative is supposed to do and that is speak for the American people.
On March 23, 2011, last Wednesday, Barbara Lee put out two press releases. The first was a statement acknowledging the passing of Elizabeth Taylor. The second contained the following: Congresswoman Lee was joined by 121 House colleagues, including 35 Republicans, to send a letter to the United States Postal Service requesting that they issue a commemorative postage stamp to honor the life and legacy of former Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm.
This ought to show those bastards in Washington that the 99ers have had all that they are going to take and that they had better get on board in passing HR 589. What a crock of shit. The dead now get more recognition than the 99ers. But I guess Lee did show that if an issue is important enough, like a postage stamp commemorating a dead Congresswoman, the Democrats and Republicans can come together.
The issue of the postage stamp seems even more ironic as the postal service is announcing that 1000s of postal workers are going to be laid off. These charlatans in Washington have become completely disconnected from the American people.
So what is the great emancipator Barry Soetoro up to these days, besides attacking Middle Eastern countries without provocation? Well he has stepped forth to represent the corporate elite who want a $550 billion new mass transit system. But like us lowly 99ers with our HR 589, he needs to find a way to pay for it.
Not a problem. The Congressional Budget Office has put forth a proposal at the bequest of Senator Kent Conrad, (D) ND for a mileage tax. We already pay outrageous gas taxes at the pump and of course we will continue to do so, but on top of that it is being proposed that we pay by the mile just to move about.
The idea of a mileage tax is nothing new as the dirty rat scumbags in the elite have been trying to find a way to work it in for years. The idea is not only to tax us to drive but to calculate the rate in reference to what time of day we are moving about. In other words, at peak traffic times, like in the morning and evening when those still lucky enough to have a job are traveling to and from work, the rate will be higher.
Remember the people’s advocate Barry Soetoro has made it clear that he will not be taxing billionaires as he refuses to bite the hand that feeds him.
99ers will say, “There is no way that they can further tax me as I have nothing left.” Well guess again. Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle, at a Mayor’s Conference in Washington DC suggested a 10 cent per roll toilet paper tax to pay for federally mandated sewage projects. In short, the poorest of the poor out there, along with everybody else, are to be taxed literally for wiping their arses.
Of course the tax has not been made law yet, but if they want it to be, we all know it will. And we all know the outrageous amounts we are paying for water, sewage, and every other utility is only going to continue to rise.
Speaking of utilities, they along with food and energy have been removed from the equation when figuring the inflation rate. Can things get any more outrageous? Of course they can.
The people of these United States had better wake up and do so quickly before we find ourselves being arrested for tax evasion for wiping our hineys with our hand to avoid this toilet paper tax that we cannot afford.
If you have read this article you are already mad. Now how about let’s get even. Who is working on the Easter Project? Who is going to be that somebody that lights the fire?
