  1. Ricky Malthus says:

    We Belizeans must refuse to pay more taxes. If you did the research, Belizeans already pay a cumulative tax of 60 cents on every dollar received. Check it out! Apparently, the mental midgets in our parliament don’t understand what it means to be subversive to our national well being. The only thing they understand is how to feed their corruption. So tax, tax, tax.

  2. Storm says:

    Malthus is right. The power to tax is the power to destroy.

    History invariably shows that lowering taxes actually grows an economy and results in more money for the government. High taxes chase money away.

    Anyway, every time GOB gets a new dollar, they put us into debt 2 dollars more.

  3. concerned says:

    I believe that the taxes should not be increased however all GOB vehicles must be parked at 5pm. Also, Ministers should get a pay cut, Why? Because ministers voluntarily put themselves to be elected and serve the ppl, therefore y pay them to so there jobs, when they are already given vehicles and all sorts of allowances.

    also, all alowances should be cut off immediately from all public officers and CEO’s. Stop giving out contracts an overpaying people when you can hire them as other public officers and pay them the same intead of paying them high contracts to do a job that they aren’t even qualify for.

    Bring back the millions said Johnny B. That is what has us in this big hole. where is the money that should have been invested in country? we would not be thinking of tax increase if the money was used for its purpose. no tax,on tax, on tax………….

  5. lovejoys says:

    No more taxes to make the rich richer and the poor poorer!!

  6. A Jew says:

    GOB should not raise taxes at this point of time to pay for the Superbond. Belize already has high taxes across the board such as High GST, High Income Tax, and High Land Taxes. This move will only cripple the country of Belize. Higher taxes means increased crime rate, higher unemployment, more poverty, higher food prices, higher fuel prices, and higher everything. Reading between the lines it seems that GOB “WANT” to raise, but they “SHOULD” not. Higher taxes will not ensure stability in the country of Belize.

    COME ON-why should belizean be paying GOB debts. GOB & all politicians have been pocketing money.. SO, belizean must protest & speak out.

  8. ROMNEY says:

    Why increase Tax when you don’t even make enough money to feed your family, why don’t you Tax people making over 30K/yr the additional money that is needed. What happen to the DRUGS MONEY FROM THE BUSTS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE? USE THAT SUCKERS.

  9. rubs says:

    COME ON- WHY SHOULD BELIZEAN BE PAYING gob DEBTS. GOB & all politicians have been pocketing $$$, what a disgrace. COME on belizeans protect & speak out.

    GOB should not raise taxes at this point of time to pay for the Superbond. Belize already has high taxes across the board such as high GST, High Income Tax, Higher Land taxes, etc. Increasing taxes will only cripple the country of Belize and will do more harm in the long run. Higher taxes mean more crime, more unemployment, increase food prices, higher fuel prices, and less money to spend. This reduce spending will mean GOB will have less money to pump into the economy which will affect development. Instead of moving forward Belize will remain stagnant and possibly move backwards in the economic ladder. Reading between the lines it seems that GOB “WANT” to raise taxes, but they “SHOULD” not.

    I doubt the Govergment gives a damn about what we think, do they?? Look at our Gas Prices. No need to tax anything else,, it will automatically bring up the cost to everything.

  12. x says:

    No goverment in history has taxed it’s way out of debt.
