no that's black people logic.
yes, once a tax is implemented it's so easy for them to raise it...and they will.
I already lose about 40% of my paycheck. Taxes make me depressed.
On a semi-related note, how stupid is it that you have to pay sales tax on your used car purchase in Washington state. Clearly the sales tax on the vehicle was already paid when bought new. If a $2000 car is bought and sold two hundred times, the state would collect $48,000.00 in tax on the $2000 car.
I can't even tell you how much it has gone up in Mass since they started doing this a few years ago. As soon as the insurance companies weren't in competition for your business rates skyrocketed. My monthly premium is $750, and I've never had a major claim or health problem, but if my business were to drop my coverage, we'd get his with a big fat penalty.
We are incredibly fucked is what I'm getting at.
Unless you'd like to come over and battle with the insurance companies and government on my behalf, you're really going to have to take my word for it. Yes, $750 a month for ME.
This whole "tax penalty for not having insurance" may be a hot issue elsewhere because it's new, but it's been going on here for several years and it isn't going down. Kind of funny that it's in the same state as MassHealth, where an ex-junkie friend of mine can get two cat scans and three specialist visits so he can go to the dentist- all paid for 100% by the state with $0 copay. Even his methodone is covered. He's also on disability because his addiction destroyed his heart. So yeah, fuck me while I work 60 hour weeks so junkies can spend a half million plus on care for their fuckup. Sounds great, where can I sign up?
So where am I wrong again??? I am sort of lost and if you think you can save me money I'm all ears.
I'd eat my fucking hat in ecstasy if this was the case in Massachusetts.
