Rapper Cardi B is furious as April 15th draws near, and her profanity-laced Instagram post sums up how many Americans feel about the government taking our hard-earned money straight out of our wallets. The headline of her Instagram post was: “I want to f*cking know WHAT YA DOING WITH MY F*CKING MONEY !!!!!” The 25 year old rapper – who is from New York City, and who’s name is actually Belcalis Almanzar — believes the federal government and her state government are wasting her cash.
In the mega-viral rant, she says she’s paying 40% of her income in taxes, without any obvious return on her money. “When you donate to a kid in a foreign country, they give you updates on what they’re doing with your donation….I want updates on my tax money.”
Also, she believes the high taxes that her city imposes don’t actually do much either. “I’m from New York and the streets is always dirty, we was voted the dirtiest city in America,” she said. “There’s still rats in the trains.”
Plus, she doesn’t believe that the government is spending the money on crime either. “I know you’re not spending it on no damn prisons,” she said. “Cus y’all be giving n-gg-s like two underwears, one jumpsuit for like five months.”
Her message to the government is loud and clear. “What is you doing with my f***ing money? I want to know, I want receipts, I want everything … Uncle Sam I want to know what the f**k you’re doing with my f***ing money!”The rapper has gotten a lot of attention for what people are describing as her “libertarian rant.” Apparently, she — rightly — has a problem with the way that New York State and the federal government has been taking away from her earnings. I totally get it. I wish that we voted on April 16th, right after everyone paid their taxes and felt just like she does — perhaps without the transparent feelings or profanity.
