Well just watched (on CBC) a snip of the story about the tax increase to hit big time in the USA come January 1st.
This was about a gal called Wendy Banner a real hard-working lady in Real Estate (selling houses).....works often 7 days a week. And has done and is doing very well. Yes she is in the 2 percent of the USA highest paid people.
In the interview with our Canadian news fellow, she tells us all that she is NOW already paying HALF of her NET income to the Government in taxes.
She also said, she does not mind paying a little more IF EVERYONE pays a little more.
WOW... SHE REALLY DOES HAVE SOMETHING. PUTTING IT IN HER LIGHT, WHEN SHE IS ALREADY PAYING HALF OF HER NET INCOME IN TAXES, AND OBAMA WANTS THEM TO PAY MORE...... GOT TO ADMIT IT SOUNDS LIKE I HAVE TO SIDE WITH WENDY ON THIS ONE.
FISCAL CLIFF HERE WE COME ..... UNLESS OBAMA SEES THE LIGHT OF DAY AS WENDY PUT IT TO US.
NOW WENDY WORKS REAL HARD FOR HER MONEY.
IT IS PEOPLE LIKE MOVIE STARS THAT GET MILLIONS FOR ONE MOVIE THAT I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH...... THEN I GUESS IF THEY ARE PAYING HALF OF IT IN TAXES..... MAYBE I'VE GOT TO NOT BE QUITE SO HARD ON THEM.
