    You want to tax more, but you don't even realize that inflation is a tax. If the economy only had 1 dollar and the fed printed 100 more dollars...GUESS WHAT? Your dollar is worth less! It's a hidden tax. They are stealing from you...why do you support such tyranny?

    Yeah, but if you have fixed debt, it's a Godsend.

    Thanks for the laugh. the dollar is worth 40% less than it was 10 years ago and wages are stagnate. Yeah, good job federal reserve. Really "low" inflation, indeed!

    Where do these trolls come from?

    He probably still lives with Mommy so all he knows is he can still eat off the dollar menu at Micky D's with change from his ashtray.

    It's also worth 95% less since the Fed took over in 1913!

    Inflation is not a tax. It does have effects that are similar to a tax, but it also has effects similar to spending cuts. For instance, future government obligations without automatic COLAs are reduced in real terms under inflation.
