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.
