Cardi B Wants Receipts From Uncle Sam on Where Her Tax Dollars are Going
Cardi B is not happy with the government, and she's doing whatever she can to get her questions answered. Yesterday (March 22), the "Bodak Yellow" rapper posted a new rant to Instagram that expresses her anger over her tax dollars and what they're being used for.
During the rant, Cardi not only asks what Uncle Sam is doing with the 40 percent that she pays on her taxes, but also argues that it may not being put to good use, as her home city of New York is still considered extremely dirty.
"So you know the government is taking 40 percent of my taxes and Uncle Sam, I want to know what you're doing with my fucking tax money," she explains. "When you donate to a kid from a foreign country, they give you updates of what they doing with your donation. I want to know what you're doing with my fucking tax money because I'm from New York, and the fucking streets is always dirty. We was voted the dirtiest city in America."
Finally, the Bronx native shares her frustration, asking to see some receipts of where her money is going..
"What is y'all doing with my fucking money?" she exclaims."I want to know! I want receipts. I want everything."
Later in the day, the new rant went viral, and was even picked up by a news source that aired it on live television. Cardi responded to being on the news with some concern over her safety.
"I can’t believe my video made the newsYA watch out for me I’m scared!" she writes. "I don’t want GT coming o for me A lot of people responded to this video like they spend our tax money in welfare ,SSI ,military but how do you know tho?where is the prove? My neighborhood still look like shit!They can’t even afford to put Metal detectors in ALL the schools but we have money for a wall and war.....Don’t mind me thoo I’m just a ex stripper with bad grammar and heavy accent."
Even though Cardi is worried about her tax dollars being put to productive use, the "Bartier Cardi" entertainer doesn't have to worry as much about her own income these days as a chart-topping artist.
