Governments impose unethical, and most likely, illegal secret taxes on the poor. These taxes are not good for the poor, the rich, the country, or the world. The taxes are not the result of overzealous governmental policies. They are the result of “goodolboysmanship.”
Governments are commissioned to protect all citizens, not just favorites. To pay for that protection, they collect taxes. All of the collected tax is ear-marked to protect all of the citizens. If the government were to hold a citizen by the arms and legs, and allow someone to sock him in the stomach, that would clearly be unkind, and probably illegal.
In order to provide for the general welfare of the citizens, governments supply or endorse currency. A dollar’s value should cost everyone a buck. If you are poor, and you work for a living it will cost you more, much more.
Government involves more than elected and appointed officials. Governmental policies align with other organizations giving them the power and license to use or abuse the citizenry. The other organizations include corporations, political parties, other governments and a host of others.
“Goodolboysmanship,” fears and opposes certain religions, certain races, and civil rights. It supports the Poor Tax that pays for “goodolboys’” immunity in the criminal court system and denies the poor access to the civil court system.
If a person is sick and goes to the hospital, the bill for a person paying cash is much higher than than if an insurance company would pay for it. This is Poor Tax, and it runs $5,000 – $10,000 per family pre year. If the person has insurance, that costs $5,000 – $10,000 a year, and if they are poor, there is a high probability that the person will receive the wrong treatment or none at all. Medically unnecessary is the reason they use to avoid treatment, and under paying the doctor is one reason, that you may be prescribed the wrong treatment.
If you bank, you pay fees for being poor. Your home mortgage will cost more, a higher percentage than if you were in a higher income bracket. The working poor family pays, on average, $3,000 per year more than their richer counterparts would for equal substandard housing. The bank devalues the currency of citizens based on their relative impoverishment.
Poor people are forced to work long hours just to survive. The Poor Tax forces them to work longer and harder for less and less. There is a way out for some poor folks, an opportunity to get ahead. There are openings for a few highly educated, extremely talented people who are willing to work hard, follow orders, and keep their mouths shut.
Using the Poor Tax, the government restrains the working poor, while the goodolboys sock them in their economic stomachs. This is clearly unkind, and probably illegal. In the US those living below the poverty line can expect their lives to be shortened by seven years. They are being economically poisoned by the Poor Tax.
