More: Tax The Poor: Forget Occupy Wall Street, Conservatives Have A Different Idea
Another HuffPo Ho.
Latest meme, the "rich" were simply lucky, hence the poor are 'unfortunate.'
The title of this thread is a lie, posted by a dishonest waste of time.
So much for liberty and justice FOR ALL.
Uhhh.....it's more than just HuffPo.
RealClearPolitics - The GOP Plan: Tax the Poor
Opinion: GOP backs tax hike -- for the poor - Robert L. Borosage - POLITICO.com
Take more money from the lower half of the population and the recession will only get worse because 150 million people will have to cut back on spending even more. More will have to have government assistance thereby raising the amount of money needed by the government and another raise in taxes.
Cause and effect.
This is not a conservative ideology, nore is it an idea that is supported by anyone that understands the economy. One of the main reasons our economy is dead is because of overtaxation on the poor and the middle class.
Taxes should be raised on the rich, and cuts need to be made for the middle and lower classes. Trickle down doesnt work, it is a lie.
The dimwits on the right think that the bulk of consumer spending comes from the top 10% of income earners.
