Belastingen: hoeveel is genoeg

belastingRay Stevens is een Amerikaanse country/pop zanger. In 1993 schreef hij een ‘protestlied’ tegen de belasting. Gisteren kwam dit lied voorbij op mijn smartphone tijdens het hardlopen. En het deed me denken aan het huidige kabinetsbeleid.

Vooral dit zinnetje: ‘But you know you can’t run a family much less a country. With more money going out than coming in.’

Dus zet je schrap voor onvervalste country met een boodschap! En voor wie country niet kan verdragen, zie je onder de video de tekst van het lied.

Now I’d just like to say a few words about taxes

I pay another man to do my taxes
On account of that’s just one more deduction I can take
But you know the mailman brought my W-2 this morning
Yeah and this year they’re taking a third of all I make.

Now I’m just as patriotic as the next man
And you know I love that Red White and Blue
So I’m gonna help to pay this rising cost of freedom
But I’ll be danged if I’m gonna change my point of view.

Cuz every time the bureaucrats run out of money
Congress socks it to the working man
And I don’t think it’s one bit funny
How they take so much of my money
And do things with it I don’t understand.

I don’t know why they think they’ve got to squeeze us
But I’ll tell you just exactly where I stand
I believe if ten percent is good enough for Jesus
Well it oughta be enough for Uncle Sam.

Now some of these folks that we’ve been sending off to Congress
Think that all they’ve got to do – just spend and spend, huh
But you know you can’t run a family much less a country
With more money going out than coming in.

Yeah and that old debt just keeps on getting bigger
And we all gonna have to pay so don’t you laugh
Cuz pretty soon we might just look down at our paychecks
And figure out that they done started taking HALF!

Cuz every time the bureaucrats run out of money
Congress socks it to the working man
And I don’t think it’s one bit funny
How they take so much of my money
And do things with it I don’t understand.

I don’t know why they think they’ve got to squeeze us
But I’ll tell you just exactly where I stand
I believe if ten percent is good enough for Jesus
Well it oughta be enough for Uncle Sam.

I said if ten percent is good enough for Jesus
Well it oughta be enough
You know times’re getting tough
And it oughta be enough for Uncle Sam.

Wat vind jij een reëel percentage belasting?
