Power Line - Europe's Politicians Don't Pay Their Taxes, Either
There is a tremendous amount of tax evasion in Europe. Luxembourg's economy is essentially based around tax evasion.
So we are mimicking them?
More and more everyday.
The higher the tax rates go, the more people will try to evade paying them.
Tax evasion & corruption are things that are both older then the countries that we live in, I don't see how it should relate to Nationalities. After all, the vast majority of americans are family of immigrated Europeans.
Not only that, our government is very near the same point of socialism as Europe. That's what the liberals want. Womb to tomb government care.
Well all I have to say is that if the government isn't about insuring that our society actually works for the majority of us most of the time, then what the fuck good is it?
The idea Obama and his cronies have of 'raising taxes on the rich' sounds like a wonderful idea, but it never works. As auditor0007 said, when taxes go up, people find ways to evade them. If they can't evade them using loopholes in the country, they'll send their wealth outside the country. (They'll even move operations offshore. Sound familiar?)
It was amusing to hear Joe Biden compare Patriotism to the rich paying more in taxes when high-level members of the Democratic Party don't pay their taxes. However, we all know Joe Biden's primary contribution to the world is comic relief, so nobody really takes him seriously. What's sad, however, is that the big-wigs in the Democratic Party would love to see the United States become a European-type country with all the social programs, unemployment and low productivity. Since the Democrats have the power, this will probably become a reality. Sorry Mr. Franklin, We're All Democrats Now
