Dancing Pizza Slice Supports Ron Paul

As the Ron Paul Presidential Campaign gathers momentum we bring you this little video. Make sure you listen to the words. There will be a test at the end.

On a serious note, Ron is campaigning for there to be no taxation on tips.

Here is an extract from his website on that subject.

"It is an outrage that waiters, waitresses, and other service-sector employees have to pay taxes on the tips they earn. The IRS makes an estimate of how much service-sector workers will make in tips, and taxes them on it even if the taxpayer did not actually earn as much as the IRS' estimate!

Tips provide a substantial portion of the income of many service-sector employees, many of whom are young people just trying to make a few extra dollars to get through school, or single parents often balancing two jobs while trying to make enough to raise a family. This tax amounts to nothing more than the federal government punishing these employees for working hard and doing their jobs well.

I have introduced H.R. 3664 in Congress to end this problem. The Tax Free Tips Act of 2007 will exempt tips from federal income and payroll taxes. Ending taxes on tips will give workers an immediate pay raise, letting them keep more money to put toward things like a house or car payment, their retirement, or their own and/or their children's education.

When you give someone a tip, you should not have to simultaneously tip the federal government."

How do we get this information out to all the restaurant owners in this country? Imagine all the support for Ron Paul for President 2008 if these hundreds of thousands of people in the restaurant business knew of this incredible bill Ron Paul has introduced.
