Revenue Enhancement & Other Code Words for Tax Increases

May 31, 2012

Revenue enhancement, just more Washington-speak and unfortunately this is starting to come from the mouths of Republicans as well as the Libs. It’s another reason why I have to keep reminding myself and others -I am NOT a Republican!

You see the spineless Re-Pubes (RINOS = Republican In Name Only) in Congress are now floating trial balloons before the debt-ceiling gets heated up again, that they may be amenable to revenue enhancements if they got enough cuts in spending. These are the ones that need to be targeted for replacement in the primaries and elections. Thank goodness for Sarah Palin and groups like the Senate Conservatives Fund who are working to elect true conservatives to the U.S. Senate.

Know and recognize the code words and justifications for tax increases:

  • Revenue increases
  • Revenue enhancements
  • Business fees & registration requirements
  • Compromise on taxes
  • Investment in education (or infrastructure, highways, roads & bridges, energy, etc)
  • Jobs Bill
  • Increased Govt. subsidies
  • Anything that includes the word “Fair”
  • Shared sacrifice
  • Reduction of inequality
  • Millionaires & billionaires (meaning individuals or businesses making over $250K)
  • A balanced approach to deficit reduction

Yes keep your ears tuned as we get closer to the coming renewal of the “debt ceiling crisis”. You know where the DEMS and Re-Pubes square off and argue about shutting down the government (which would probably be the best for all concerned).

Utah Senator Orin Hatch may have said it best: 

“The decision to spend lasts only a moment, but the debt incurred to pay for these decisions lasts forever. Our problem is spending that has grown out of control, not a lack of revenue.”

Just keep looking to Europe. God is trying to tell us something in the form of Greece.

Aloha, Mikie

~Remember:  The government has NO resources. They produce NOTHING (like Facebook). They can only take from one group and give to others they feel more worthy of their largess (buying votes). Support tax reform!
