Tax cuts will add to debt burden

The tax cuts being given to Americans will have to be made up sometime. The debt will have to be paid back. Now, we as tax payers can look to higher federal gas taxes and higher federal taxes on utilities and, read this real close, raising the partial social security age to 65 … Yes 65 years of age and the full amount to 70 years of age. Reducing Medicare insurance payments and charging more for access to federal lands. Now, let’s not forget a 4 percent sales tax on many items bought in stores. Look for cigarette and motel taxes to rise and for raise increases to our politicians. Also look for reductions in social security payments and changes in how social security payments are made. People making say a million dollars a year after retirement may not get any social security payments in their future, but maybe some medicare.Well, I hate to darken any days to come but remember borrowed monies will have to be repaid..
