If you were looking for a reason NOT to vote democrat this year and haven't found one yet, well you're probably an idiot. But just in case, how would you like to pay the government a 1% tax on every financial transaction you make?
Your $2,000 paycheck direct deposit? The government takes $20 for itself.
$36 movie tickets for your family? The government takes $.36 for itself.
Use your ATM bank card for $50 in gasoline? The government takes $.50 for itself.
I might could get behind this if they abolished the hideously progressive income tax and used this in its place, but this is in addition to all the other dozens of taxes the government takes from us every day. Starting to get the picture? Under the democrats, the federal government wants every red cent it can wring out of you to fund everything from redistributive vote-buying treachery to penis-washing programs for stupid African men.
If you like the idea of the behemoth federal nanny State seizing still more of your money every time you use it, go ahead and vote democrat, but shut your stupid piehole when you can't afford a new car, a vacation, or the new deck your house needs because the government is bleeding you dry.
