The economic environment is getting better again and there is one party who pleads for lowering the income taxes with 3 %
Well thats good you would say! Ofcourse its good but what does that really mean? It just means the rich people will get richer and the poor people becomming even more poor! There is less poverty in The Netherlands, but the depth of poverty has increased!
So instead of letting the higher incomes pay a little more to help the poor.
Im going to give you an example to explame what 3% actually means. In this example I will use easy figures to make my point clear. The numbers are NOT reflecting reality!
Lets say someone has an income of a 1000
3% of 1000 = 30
Now lets say someone has an income of a 100
3% of 100 = 3
So the people who earn more will get even more! Is it just me or isnt this exactly right? People driving a fancy car, having meat on the table everyday will get more. While some people who dont even know if they can afford meat this week are getting just a tiny bit more.
Where was the turning point in history where we as humans got so greedy that we only want to have more and more and forget about the poor?
