Here is the official liberal position on our tax rates:
1) Bush lowered the rates 10 years ago. That was horrible
2) The Clinton tax rates were higher across the board. That was awesome.
3) They want to go back to the Clinton tax rates-Those were the days!- but....
4) Only for people making over $250,000. For everyone else the Bush tax rates....
5) Are awesome.
It turns out liberals LOVE the Bush tax rates when it comes to themselves. No one you or I know making less than a $250,000 has said, "I want to pay more federal income taxes. I want the Clinton tax rates."
You will sooner see the Jets sack a quarterback than see that happen.
Which begs the question: If liberals think that the welfare state is underfunded and that higher taxes are the way to go, why are they excluding everyone from under $250k from paying more taxes?
Isn't it so nice of them, to have OTHER PEOPLE fund there welfare state?
It's so important to fund, but not so important that they pay into it.
10% of the country pays 70% of the taxes.
50% of the country pays nothing.
But they love their Bush tax cuts,,,, when it comes to themselves.
