Richard Acevedo started this petition to U.S. House of Representatives and

I hear from so many people complaining about where exactly their tax dollars go. The purpose of this petition is to call on our government leaders to end the shutdown by enacting a simple, quick, and cheap solution. The idea of giving the American people the choice to chose where exactly their tax dollars go. This will end our current and any future government shutdown. Every American will be happy and this includes our elected officials. I have friends, co-workers and family who are for or against the wall being built. The American people are being divided by decisions being made by our elected officials. This idea will bridge the the division that has grown longer in our country.

The idea is to create a section in our tax returns that will allow Americans to decide if they want to fund either a Republican project, a Democrat project or neither. Under that section, there will be an option of either a 1%, 3% or 5% deduction from the amount taxes they would be receiving. Both the Republican and Democratic parties will be able to decide what the projects will be. A committee composed of both parties will oversee the projects. 

If our elected officials can't come together to on a particular idea, then send it to the tax payers to make that idea come true! There are only winners with this idea. The Democrats get what they want. The Republicans get what they want. Every tax payer gets what they want. Even those Americans, who don't want to spend their tax dollars on anything else, get what they want. Corporations will also be able to support the party of their choosing as well.

To add 2 sections to our tax returns will not be costly and will not be time consuming. There were more Americans that filed their taxes in 2018 than actually voted in 2016. Let the American people fund for what they believe in. And keep our government from ever shutting down again and from being divided any further. We have to work together because its the only way.
