Sam George revealed that, he cannot vote to approve the budget. According to him, the e-levy that was included in the budget is what drives him towards this decision.
The 2022 budget which was presented by the Finance Mister, Hon Ken Ofori Atta to the parliament house few days ago caused massive stir as it came out with certain decisions of high national interest.
Many people showed their reactions about the budget and it seemed like the country was divided into parts where some individuals were in support of the budget and others were not.
Honourable Sam George has also joined the parts that disagree with the budget, saying that, the e-levy aspect is what informs his decision.
He made this statement is a post on his Facebook page earlier today.
“The more I process and digest the e-Levy, the angrier I get. It is a complete rip off. It is a taxation ponzi scheme designed to tax the same value of money multiple times. It is a plain government thievery and I cannot vote to approve a budget that has that levy included. No!”, he wrote.
