Who pays for……..?

If you will assume for just a moment that taxes is where we get the money for FIREMEN, POLICEMEN, MILITARY PEOPLE, GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES, YOUR HEALTH INSURANCES (MEDICARE AND MEDICADE), EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES, TEACHERS, SOCIAL SECURITY, HIGHWAYS, ETC, ETC. IN ADDITION THERE ARE MANY FORMS OF TAXING THAT PAY FOR THE AFORMENTIONED NEEDS.

You pay with payroll money (if you have a job). You receive money if you don’t have a job (at least for awhile). You pay a tax for USA ¬†products and services. You and the companies in this country pay sales tax, payroll tax, property tax, etc. etc. Of course, you may not agree with every thing mentioned and how the money is used. But taxes are a big part of what pays for most of the above in one way or another. ¬†Working people pay these taxes and active manufacturing or service companies pay for the taxes.

Whether you agree with all of this or not, for just one moment tell me how you expect life to stay the same or get worse if we don’t pay taxes. Do you think there might be some future interest in keeping the benefits mentioned in the first paragraph? Do you think keeping jobs and companies in the United States might be important regarding the maintenance of our current standard of living? Do you agree with the fact that we have to pay for this standard of living? Do you think buying USA Made might be your way of fixing this situation?

  1. I found your site through a commenter at Huffington Post. The story was about how the WalMarts and Targets and Macy’s, etc. are turning a blind eye to the deplorable human rights abuses at their Jordanian clothing manufacturers. I am SO happy to have found a place to purchase clothing items that are actually made here in the USA!

    I’d rather pay a bit more for goods made here than save a few pennies or dollars buying imported stuff. It costs all of us far more in the long run to destroy our own manufacturing industry so we can purchase cheap items made in overseas factories that can pay workers $1/day. I believe the expression is “Penny wise, pound foolish”.

    Yes, taxes are tough to swallow but they are absolutely a necessary component of a civil society. Everyone pays taxes in one form or another, some more, others less.

    I will share your site with others, and I hope to see more companies keeping or returning jobs here at home!

  2. Americans need to understand that quality products are the result of a quality community. If workers are happy and get a fair wage and healthy working conditions, then it’s easy to understand why they would be more invested in the products they make and the companies they work for. Taxes are one of the ways we can assure a quality society for all people. The problem is not whether or not the majority of people should pay taxes, or how much, but that the tax structure is fair. The super rich carry far too little of the tax burden, and multinational corporations dodge nearly all taxes by working in other countries. This is what really needs changing. People on welfare and public broadcasting are not bankrupting the country. We are seeing the fruits of corrupt laws and policies going back many years.

  3. Once I stumbled upon Made in USA clothing this is the place where I purchase all my work clothes and casual clothing. I will continue to purchase everything I can that is USA made. We as true Americans have to support the companies that continue to support America.
