What would the crack addict say?

Who would be surprised that when asked what the best solution to his drug problem would be, a crack addict would say the answer wasn’t to get into drug rehab, but to get more crack to smoke? Similarly, who would be surprised to find that when progressive shitbags get asked how to fix the massive deficit spending by the Obama administration their answer wouldn’t be to get spending under control, but that people already fleeced by insane taxation levels need to be hammered even harder:

America is undertaxed, and the result is underfunding of public investments that would improve our economy and the overall welfare of Americans. Fortunately, Congress has several straightforward policy options to raise revenue, mostly by closing or limiting loopholes and special subsidies imbedded in the tax code that benefit wealthy individuals and profitable businesses.

Part I of this report explains why Congress needs to raise the overall amount of federal revenue collected. Contrary to many politicians’ claims, the United States is much less taxed than other countries, and wealthy individuals and corporations are particularly undertaxed. This means that lawmakers should eschew enacting laws that reduce revenue (including the temporary tax breaks that Congress extends every couple of years), and they should proactively enact new legislation that increases revenue available for public investments. Parts II, III, and IV of this report describe several policy options that would accomplish this. This information is summarized in the table to the right.

What a pile of fucking bullshit. And remember, these are the same people that constantly get caught not following the tax laws they impose on us little people. America is over taxed. The shitty economic situation we find ourselves in proves it. What we have is a spending problem. But don’t as my opening statement proves, when you ask a crack addict how to fix his problem, he isn’t going to say rehab. He is going to ask for more crack to smoke.

The other day we had a discussion in the comment section of one of the posts here about how the big it was not fair to blame Obama and demcorats for the deficit spending of the last 6 or so years, because the talking point was that it was all the fault of Boosh’s war adventurism. Some of us pointed out that the left would have spent the money anyway. This belief that the solution to the spending problem we have now is more taxes should leave no doubt that the left actually feels we are not spending enough on their vote buying schemes.

Remember the orchestrated, but thankfully unsuccessful, campaign to pretend that they had to deficit spend because of Boosh tax cuts? The left never feels, and will never feel, the issue is that they want to spend too much on vote buying. And if we let them get their way, things will get worse. The connected will rake in a huge chunk of the cash they steal from the productive. They economic disaster caused by their policies and practices will drive even more people into the dependency camp (that’s something they actually see as a bonus). And the productive pool, as well as the middle class, will again be shrunk and hammered. The left knows what they stand for doesn’t work, but they don’t care. That’s because it has always been about power and the ability to steal from the productive. These scumbags prey on the envious/jealous and greedy parasitic entities to rip off those that actually are doing the things that keep our society working. Fuck that.

We don’t need higher taxation levels: we need to destroy the progressive movement and their campaign to steal from the productive.

    Sure seems like “Bush’s wars” have been steadily winding down while spending has continued to go up dramatically.

    The author (and article) is right about one thing, there are far too many folks (and corporations) not paying the legitimate taxes they legally owe, this has to stop.

    Hal’s “cible première de l’action” is the War on Drugs, mine is tax reform. There is nothing more anti-American than the unfair convoluted arbitrary tax system we have now, nothing that punishes achievement and rewards indolence, nothing that has legalized fraud and duplicity baked right into the system, nothing that forces successful corporations to take their money (and jobs) overseas to a more hospitable business climate, and nothing that flies more in the face of that American ideal of getting wealthy by working hard.

    250 years ago (give or take) we showed the world that men can govern themselves and still protect the civil liberties of the governed, I think it’s time for another radical idea, a flat tax, simple enough to be filed on a postcard, one that provides incentive enough for hard working American’s to bust their butt, and one that can adequately fund a reasonable sized government, a government that understands it’s limitations and duties as enumerated in the Constitution.

    As I said on the other thread, spending hasn’t risen in five years.

    It’s cute that you think that Bush/GOP and “the Left” are different things.

    According to WHO? What the hell is “undertaxed”? Is this like “pay their fair share”? I cannot stand bullshit statements like this. So let me get this point straight – Because other countries fleece their citizens and corporations through higher tax rates (though very few countries have higher corporate taxes these days than the US), the US needs to confiscate more of the productive US Citizens hard earned money? It’s like arguing that because Greece had such bad financial policies in place that they imploded, the US needs to do the same thing.

    You do realize that’s by design right? We have had this discussion before. The system exists in the totally broken and bastardized version we have today because the political class, but especially the party of the little people, has corrupted it in order to make a fortune from those that come to seek special favors and exemptions. We have not had capitalism in America since the FDR years, when the political class, hiding behind the mantra of social justice (or whatever they called this shit back when) began tampering with the system, with the ultimate goal of giving themselves the power to pick winners and losers, all while enriching themselves. And as time has passed it has gotten worse. The quickest way to become stinking fucking rich in this country is to run for office as a democrat, win, then pass stupid laws you pretend are to help people, but serve to line the pockets of your friends and connections, in return for mega money..

    We could lower US corporate taxes to under 18% today, remove most exemptions, especially the ones that incentivize the mega corps – like GE, and countless others, that donate huge to democrats to buy these exemptions, then ship jobs overseas – to move their earnings offshore, and probably triple (if not quadruple according to some) what Uncle Sam collects from the corporate world today. Not to mention it would spur massive growth of industry in the US if our corporate tax rates dropped from the world’s highest (or second highest). Can you imagine how many European and Asian plants would move back here, albeit with robots doing most of the work because of the insane minimum wage policies?

    I know people like to accuse corporations of gaming the system and robbing the poor people of the economic obligation they should have as corporate entities, but the fact is the real problem is and always will be the politicians and a system that allows said politicians to gain power and wealth from selling favors. It’s the whole who really was responsible for the housing crisis discussion all over. The problem, in every single one of these scenarios, is the political class and the system they profit from. Here is the most recent example of the left battling for crony capitalism. Remove that system and punish the political class for abusing the power of their offices, and these problems will diminish drastically, if not outright go away.

    That’s why I say we can’t cure what ails us now until we kill the nanny state dead in its tracks.

    Maybe so but it sure doesn’t feel or seem like it. I know for damn sure my tax burden hasn’t gone down.

    The author (and article) is right about one thing, there are far too many folks (and corporations) not paying the legitimate taxes they legally owe, this has to stop.

    It sure seems like a lot of those are the ones who spout the leftist bullshit the loudest, or at least their public figures do.

    How do we really know that spending is flat if we don’t have a budget? DOes the lack of “rise” in the spending include recently printed money and borrowed money in some creative way? Nothing would suprise me with these toolbags.
