As our nation continues to be divided, and debt increases, I have decided to put an end to the division and pay off our debt.
I have the answer.
I call it, "Optional Tax"
NYC has more than doubled the number of people on food stamps, causing some to decry, while others praise.
Locally, resentment over high taxes continues to divide producers from consumers, right down to disputes in grocery lines.
Abortion has divided a nation in half.
Immigration has become another divider, with calls of racism against some.
Here is my solution:
When you start a new job, you will pay taxes, with some, like national defense, law enforcement and highway maintanence, non-negotiable. Everyone will begin at the same tax rate. We will not punish success, but be equitable. If you make little, you are taxed little; if you make a lot, you will pay a lot, but not more: the same percentage for all.
Next, you will be allowed to Check a Box which will then allow you to choose:
Tax #1: Social Security Tax
If you opt to not pay social security tax, you will not be eligible for social security payouts later in life.
Tax #2 Food Stamps
If you do not check the box to have food stamp tax taken out of your check, you will not pay for someone else's food. By not checking, you are ineligible to apply for Food Stamps for Three Years after opting out.
Tax #3 Medicaid Abortion Tax
If you are pro abortion, click the box and you will help pay for medicaid abortions.
If you are against abortion, you cannot stop someone else from having one, but you will not be forced to pay for it. Like Food Stamps, if you do not pay into Medicaid, you cannot seek benefits for three years after opting out.
Billions of dollars to keep people out comes to an end. Anyone who enters the country cannot apply for any benefits whatsoever, for five years. No free anything, or living off the labor of others. This would then limit immigration to those who wish to partake of the blessings of our land, and have come to work.
Have I solved most of the major disputes in our country in the five minutes it took you to read this?
