With multi-trillions in deficits, the tax man cometh

Beware the IRS. The tax man cometh.

With the federal government’s current spending spree resulting in multi-trillions of deficits and debt, you can bet your last $5-spot that the IRS is going to be devising new ways of getting our money.

Any thinking person already knows that in order to pay for the programs implemented just since Obama took office in January, tax increases will be necessary for every single income group except for the poor.

Forget about Obama-speak in which claims are thrown around about 95% of the population getting a tax cut and only those making over $200,000 per year will see a tax increase. Crunch the numbers. Do the math. In order to pay for Obama’s mind-blowing spending spree in the midst of an economic downturn, the middle class will be hit with tax increases as well.

So much for the promise that the under-$200,000-per-year crowd will get a break.

There is absolutely, positively no logistical way for Americans to pay for Obama’s runaway spending without massive taxes increases one way or another, the middle class included.

Thus, we can expect the IRS to be on the prowl.

Tax investigators will be looking more closely for errors or under-reporting of income. We can expect the number of audits to drastically increase. Never mind that half of Obama’s Cabinet is made up of those with tax problems of their own, and our very own tax man himself, Timothy Geithner, in his stellar example as a role model couldn’t even get his taxes in order.
