Democrat Taxes

If you don’t understand the Democrats’ version of tax cuts (and you are not alone), this will explain it for you.

50,000 people go to a baseball game, but the game was rained out. A refund was then due. The team was about to mail refunds when the Congressional Democrats stopped them and decreed that they send out refund amounts based on the Democrat National Committee’s interpretation of fairness. After all, if the refunds were made based on the price each person paid for the tickets, most of the money would go to the wealthiest ticket holders. That would be unconscionable! The DNC plan says people in the $10 seats will get back $15, because they have less money to spend. Call it an “Earned” Income Ticket Credit. Persons “earn” it by demonstrating little ambition, few skills and poor work habits, thus keeping them at entry-level wages. People in the $15 seats will get back $15, because that’s only fair. People in the $25 seats will get back $1, because they already make a lot of money and don’t need a refund. If they can afford a $25 ticket, then they must not be paying enough taxes. People in the $50 luxury seats will have to pay another $50, because they have way too much to spend. The people driving by the stadium who couldn’t afford to watch the game will get $10 each, even though they didn’t pay anything in, because they need the most help. Now do you understand? If not contact Representative Richard Gephart or Senator Tom Daschle for assistance.

    As the greatest President in history Barak Obama proposes a $318 billion tax increase, only on the “wealthy”, it has to be pointed out that the top 2% of individual taxpayers pay 62% of all individual income receipts. History shows that tax receipts drop when taxes are raised on this group. This is not about raising tax revenue for the government. It is about pulling down the earners and achievers to the level of suffering of the Democrat’s base of class envy losers. When revenues fall short of the level needed to feed Pelosi, Reid and Obama’s limitless hunger for pork, taxes will be raised on the rest of us, and yet somehow it will be Bush’s fault.

    Obama was confronted about raising taxes and revenue dropping during the Obama/Clinton debates. He had no answer.

    Just like he said to Joe, he doesn’t want to take from Joe… he wants to make things FAIR for everyone. How you do that? Like you said… bring EVERYONE down…

"We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth... For my part, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst; and to provide for it." - Patrick Henry

"Politicians and diapers both need to be changed, and for the same reason." - Anonymous

"Right is right, even if everyone is against it, and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it." - William Penn

"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country" - Hermann Goering

"I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do this I keep on doing." - Romans 7:18-19

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
