After parliamentary group caucuses yesterday, it appears MPs will pass the amendments proposed by the executive and load more taxes on Kenyans.
The problem is MPs think this is a one time tax raise to fix things this year but we are on the debt treadmill so next year they will have to feed the Leviathan again.
They have set in motion the definite grind towards a shock and the only thing we shall recall is that it's bipartisan and shared responsibility by executive and parliament.
I have to ask parliament why they do not take issue with the president's view that a reduction in tax rate only means that another tax must be raised elsewhere.
Is it that for this president of Kenya, spending is a fixed fiscal measure to which taxes must always adjust upwards?
