Should parents of multiple children pay more in taxes instead of less?

146 posts in this topic

I have no issue with paying tax toward public schools. It's for the greater good and I understand that. But people around here where i live have a bit of taxes going toward bridge maintenance. But just as a toll charges the people who use the bridge the most, there should be a tax on people who have over a set number of children. Seems like we'd be hearing less about problems with school funding and teacher salaries. Not to mention people might think about having kids more thoroughly who can't afford them, which would help in the money spent on public assistance to people with babies who can't afford them.

I figured.  Actually I was thinking "he wasn't taking into account the lower brackets.  I wonder how much he would actually have to make to get taxed 35%?"

 

Then I voluntarily did algebra to figure out what it would be.

 

For fun.

I always make the mistake of totaling how much the government in total robs from me. That's federal, state, local, and those other things.

 

I can't wait until I'm a 1099 employee again.

If a person got tax credits for their kid graduating at least high school it may make them consider mult kids since its a back end credit and not current.

The tax base for a kid doesnt happen until they are at least 18 and making money enough to get taxed.

You can't end the war on drugs. What would happen then? Its not like Colorado and Washington legalizing marijuana cut into 3 billion dollars of revenue for cartels.

yes, we can't end the biggest waste of resources in the history of the world, that would just be terrible

 

the worst thing is all the dea and police officers would lose their jobs, and then we'd have a bunch of mass murdering rapists running around unemployed

Yep...people with more kids increase the tax base

 

That assumes that all of those kids become productive members of society and not another statistic is gov't entitlement programs.

Or trust fund babies that look for any loophole they can find once they are afforded adequate education because their parents can pay for it or a corporate position because of "who you know not what you know"...
