"Fixing inflation is difficult because it is a complicated problem, exacerbated by years of political insiders passing the buck." Greg Wheeler
AKRON, OH, February 02, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Ohio Attorney and Accountant, Greg Wheeler, Republican candidate for for Ohio's Thirteenth Congressional District announced a comprehensive plan to combat inflation. According to Wheeler, inflation is the greatest threat facing America today, claiming that as inflation increases, the consequences will be dire for everyone, especially America's working class. Wheeler asserts that stopping inflation should be the nation's number one priority. He has indicated that many voters ask him the same question. "If you were elected today, what law would you propose to stop inflation?"
"I have solutions we can start with," said Greg Wheeler. "Fixing inflation is difficult because it is a complicated problem, exacerbated by years of political insiders passing the buck. Everyone understands that inflation is bad. If a gallon of milk is more than $3.50, or a gallon of gas is $4.00, there is a problem. But while everyone understands that inflation is bad, not everyone is willing to work hard to fix inflation. We are going to have to reduce government spending. That is necessary. Unfortunately, as uncomfortable as that solution is, it cannot be the only fix. There is too much wrong."
"A key difficulty with correcting inflation is that many hard-working Americans are unaware of the causes," concluded Wheeler. "Most Americans are unaware that the United States Federal Government spent $6.82 Trillion dollars in 2021. Most Americans are unaware that the federal government has 2.1 million employees (and that doesn't include the military). Why? Why is our government so big? Why are we spending so much? Because the average American is unaware. We need to help Americans become aware. If we are a government of the people, by the people, for the people, the people have a right to know what the government is buying. The easiest way to do this, is creating a taxpayer portal with www.tax.gov."
Wheeler's proposed tax.gov portal would allow taxpayers to log in to their unique online profile and pay their taxes. The proposal would also allow taxpayers to allocate a portion of how the government spends their taxes Environmentally conscientious voters could direct their taxes to be spent with the EPA. Parents with children serving in the military could direct their taxes to support defense. The portal would allow individuals to see how others have allocated their taxes to be spent, and most importantly, taxpayers could see how the government is spending America's money.
This proposal gives some of the political spending power directly to the people. Thirty years ago, such an idea was impossible. With advancement in technology, the internet allows for a unique, effective, and relatively simple solution for a complicated problem. The proposal creates more government transparency, a bipartisan issue.
