Just curious on how people think...
The liberals (not all DEMs) want to get as much as possible out of the rich and upper 'earners' while balancing their need for votes... because they know they get X # of votes with the class warfare rhetoric, keeping a high % of people from even paying income tax, and entitlement gifts, but it is not inherently enough to win every election... so they have to balance their confiscation with rhetoric and guilt
Yes, I think if it were politically feasible that's exactly what they would do.
But what good would it do? As far as I'm concerned, The middle and working class need a boost. They need disposable income to keep the economy rolling...that in turn, makes the wealthy more in the way of profits.
As far as taxation is concerned... with the middle and working class struggling so much... it's unfair to put the burden of the debt and deficit on their shoulders. Yes.. I know... families of the income range of $30k and under likely do not pay Federal income tax at all... but these are the people who are most affected by the high cost of living. Plus... they do pay every other tax that everyone else does.
If they taxed the wealthy into oblivion, Congressional Dems would be taxing themselves into oblivion.
They just want to win a election, they are the rich.
liberals talk the talk but they don't walk the walk. it's just that simple. what they dew is L E E C H off others.
The liberals will always push for more taxes on the rich. No rate is too high -- taxing the rich pays for handouts, their primary means of expanding their voter base.
Dems want one thing and one thing only - POWER. They get that POWER by being able to spend massive amounts of taxpayer money- the more the merrier. They use the money to gain more influence by creating dependencies, crony capitalism, granting more power to unions, etc.. That means ever increasing taxes, ever increasing social engineering, ever expanding government.
well, I guess he got his answer..
Separate names with a comma.
