Taxes will continue to increase on gas... one of many ways to pay for Biden's infrastructure.

Taxes often increase after an election, it’s usually because money is needed to help recover from the mess left by the previous administration.

It happens here as well.

Biden's address to Congress had low viewers. Many are sorry they
voted for him, I bet.

NEW YORK (AP) — An estimated 26.9 million people watched President Joe Biden's first address to Congress across 16 television networks, the smallest audience for the yearly presidential speech since at least 1993.

The previous low was the 31.3 million who watched President Barack Obama's final State of the Union address in 2016, the Nielsen company said on Thursday. Nielsen didn't have measurements before 1993.

Biden's audience compares to the 37.2 million viewers former President Donald Trump had for his State of the Union address last year. Trump's first speech to a joint session of Congress shortly after taking office in 2017 was seen by 47.7 million people.

- property tax went up 130%, got it down to 50% increase and still have a review board to lower it more.

- had to pay an addition $3800 on income tax.
- land I was willing to pay $15000 (and valued at) went up to $36000 valuation(not going to pay that increase)

All this government spending is going to cause things to get worst. Honestly pondering to quit trying to walk with my head up and be one that has his hand stuck out and become part of the problem. But I don't think I could do that.


Everything you mention were done the last two three years. Better check with your local and state officials.


My income tax is the only thing from last year. Every thing else is for this year.

Doesn't everyone think the priorities of populations across the world will have to change as a result of the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns causing economic meltdowns, regardless of whether anyone might wish it to be otherwise, thus taxes rising to try to balance the books, rather than expecting economic growth to take care of everything is the price to pay to try to balance the books?

Correction, we've gone from white affluent America first under trump to all Americans first under Biden. As far as the border goes, no party has gotten it right.



All Americans first? That is delusional utopic thinking.. most are struggling over making ends meet.

As far as the border is concerned... he managed to single-handedly overturn
the safeguards of the previous administration and cause the worst crisis disaster
in the history of the USA.





Dream on, non-affluent America struggled immensely under trump, and it got even worse once the pandemic started, trump stayed on the golf course in the stead of taking care of business. If you want to say trump improved the life of white affluent America, I would concur.


Please check the statistics..unemployment rates for Hispanics, African-Americans, and Asians were at an all-time low. That's right: Unemployment had never been lower for minorities, at least not since 1972, when such records first started being kept. This was
under Trump... what has Biden done... closed jobs, that's what.




Comparing unemployment from the 1st Q of 2020 to the 1st Q of 2021 is a deceptive political maneuver. 1st Q of 20 20 was the early stages of the pandemic, 1st Q of '21 reflects a decline in unemployment in the latter Quarters of 2020 when the current administration worked to speed up vaccinations. Remember, Nero was fiddling in early 2020 while the flames of the pandemic rose higher.

Nero fiddled but Trump was working on the unprecedented speed of rollout vaccines with Operation Warp speed! Biden takes all the credit unfairly!

Not in early 2020, he denied it was an issue at all.

President Biden has not ever taken full credit for the vaccine, he surely has take credit in getting the vaccine to people and allowing us to be vaccinated.

The Biden Administration was very clear that the Trump administration had no plan for a vaccine rollout. The "Operation Warp Speed" was a disorganized, ineffectual bunch of buzzwords that resulted in the deaths of 580,000 Americans dying in one year under Trump. If Trump had remained in office, we would have gone the path of India - which has happened due to Modi's foolish denial of the virus and lifting of Covid mandates too early (he's also a Trump buddy).

Biden should take all the credit. Thirty seven percent (37%) of the American population is now vaccinated under Biden since January 6th. That's gigantic. That wasn't due to Trump. That is due to Biden. Trump was the leader of this country and is directly responsible for the deaths of those Americans by his negligence and denial of the virus. Remember his "Slow the testing down!" speech at a MAGA rally? Remember his consistent denial of the danger of the virus when he was aware of its spread in China months before it hit here and he did nothing? Remember his trashing of wearing masks? Remember his part in storming our capitol and the attempts to murder members of the US Congress, including his own Vice President? I do.

I take personal offense at the irresponsibility of Trump supporters who believe that Trump even remotely did anything to slow or prevent the spread of Covid. You know that's not true and so do the rest of us. My mother died of this virus in a nursing home and I never saw her when she died because I was not allowed in. Had she been vaccinated in time, she may be still alive.

Stop trying to give credit to a man who did not perform the role of a president and who is responsible for the bad outcomes that killed so many people. I am one of millions of Americans who are so incredibly tired of this false speak and ignorance of facts that Trump made a habit of in our country. It's insulting to my country and our history.
