Why is a surtax needed as an incentive to make wise prudent government and private citizen decisions to cope during the pandemic?

In a previous post titled: Helplessness vs. Constructiveness Wisdom, I gave an opinion “Instead of borrowing the funds, it should place a pandemic tax during the pandemic to help those in need because of government shutdowns.

In another previous post titled: USA 2222-23 Reality Game of Thrones?  I linked The Great Barrington Declaration, report of the 4000 doctors who have signed a declaration to give their advice that the government quarantine mandates are causing more health problems than the pandemic

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate ancient proverbs to our contemporary times to the present circumstances being experienced nine months on why we need a surtax during this pandemic.

King Solomon

30They accepted none of my counsel; they despised all my reproof. 31So they will eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.32For the waywardness of the simple will slay them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them. Proverbs 1:30-32)

What’s My Point?

At the beginning of the pandemic, we had no experience what we were being faced with and the logic of the quarantine was to flatten the curve to prevent hospitals from being overburdened.

Nine months later doctors have more experience how to treat the virus and which groups they advise should focus on because they have higher risks of mortality if infected, Frankly, I am in a high-risk group.

My point is the government continued borrowing to address the pandemic may be serving to prevent wise prudent discernment in addressing the risks of the pandemic. Nanny government is becoming a detriment to both wise prudent discernment and creating dependency rather than self-reliance in our Nation.

Placing a government pandemic surtax is a method used in private businesses to deal with temporary price market fluctuations of commodities. It acts an incentive to pass on temporary costs to users of the commodities and at the same time provides an incentive for users to reevaluate more prudent discernment for the need of the surtaxed commodities.

In other words, temporary taxation to reduce more trillions of continued borrowings will produce both incentives and awareness of all types of changing issues by both government and private citizens, in my opinions.

In My Opinion

I have no professional medical training. However, the 4000 doctors who signed the Great Barrington Declaration do have medical expertise gained during the pandemic and the effects they are experiencing with their patients.

I believe a similar pandemic surtax will create added awareness and incentives for people to discern the present circumstances and focus quarantine measures more on people with high risks of mortality if they contract the virus rather that the entire population.

Does “nanny government dependency” serve to provide more or less prudent wisdom or folly and discernment in our Nation by both government and private citizens?

Has USA borrowing become a form of complacency by fools, that will will serve in time to destroy our Nation in the future?
