Un­bear­able taxes

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Thou­sands of peo­ple who work hard and con­sci­en­tiously are start­ing to ask them­selves if there is any point in this coun­try of con­tin­u­ing to do so. They are in this po­si­tion be­cause of a level of tax­a­tion that has be­come dev­as­tat­ing. Any ex­tra sav­ings or in­come they may have man­aged to se­cure have now been com­pletely drained. The gov­ern­ment does not care be­cause the only thing it cares about is to pro­tect the priv­i­leges and ap­point­ments of those it con­sid­ers its clients. Which­ever tech­no­crat, whether Greek or non-Greek, came up with this plan of over­tax­a­tion is clearly in­com­pe­tent or just cared about whether or not the num­bers would add up in the end. Well, it turns out they won’t add up in the end. They won’t add up be­cause such lev­els of tax­a­tion are un­bear­able and un­rea­son­able. Es­pe­cially when all they do is go down a black hole of mis­man­age­ment and ad­min­is­tra­tive de­fi­ciency.
