palooza 1 year, 9 months ago on Local leaders react to health care ruling

Johnson is funny talking about paying down the debt. Germany, a socialist economy that is cited by liberals as a model for universal health care, has a 14.9 per cent tax on gross income to pay for it. This is on top of all other income taxes. Adding 14.9% on top of all our other taxes probably does not sound bad to the 49% of working people that pay no taxes, but it sounds like ALOT to those of us that do pay. I am working hard to become a receiver of government largess instead of a taxpayer! Working underground for cash is the only way to avoid being a sucker - or emigrating!
