Dear Future President:

Hello my name is Sam if you're reading this that means that you won the election good job. Anyway I think the U.S.A. has a lot of work to do to stop the things happening as this time like paying back china or stopping terrorist. But most important keeping the people of the U.S.A. happy and stopping people from being homeless. One issue I think the U.S.A. needs to fix is the taxes in our country. Lots of people are having problems with supporting their family and paying high taxes.

Basically most of the american citizens have a harder time with money each time the taxes go up. If taxes keep going up and taxes are added on to things like a tennis ball the people will get mad and things will go bad kind of like the french revolution because tax was a big factor to it. Even though their may be a way to balance the tax of the rich and the poor so more taxes on people with millions of dollars and less on the people with thousands of dollars.

There are lots of causes for high taxes. One cause is when a town does not have a lot of big business to pay the town money kind of like the town I live in the only big business that this town has is shop right, sears, and TJ max. Because of that the people pay more in tax and most of the town is poor from that so in other words it’s what the government need. If they need money to build a library then they expect the people to pay them more money so they can pay for the library. Second is the school funding the town and the school always work together if the school needs something the town look at the people to give them the money to give the school so they can buy new equipment. Sometimes the school will do fundraising to get their own stuff.

Some of the effects of having high taxes are crime if people do not not have enough money most people will try to steal it from others so that they have some money the can use to pay tax. Lost in jobs if taxes are too high in the country or state business will try to move to different country or state and will expect you to follow or find a new job most people will leave their home but for those who can’t they end up losing their job and may not find another so they may work at a place that is like the job a high schooler will have and it all goes bad from there.

Some people may disagree and say it would be better for the money to the government and not the people but we all know the both are important if the government has no money then the military and government departments could not make the country a better place and protect the people. But if the people do not have money then the government will not be able to get more from tax because the people will be too poor. What you can do is help get business into towns that do not have any and stop the government from spending too much money.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope the in the future taxes will be lower and the other issues can be resolved.
