Biden has proposed raising taxes on corporations (returning only HALF of the amount Trump reduced their taxes to in his corporate welfare / tax giveaway to the rich act) and on those earning $400,000 per year.
TrumpubliQans who are whining about asking those who have benefited the most while others have suffered to pay a little more, closing loopholes and getting closer to making them pay their fair share, are simply admitting, openly and publicly, that THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT THEIR RICH DONORS and that, if you are not a ginormous corporation or a bazillionaire, TRUMPUBLIQANS DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOU.
Yeah, there really ARE pinheads out there who think (if that’s the verb) that this will harm the economy. If you’re one such, let me answer as I’m sure you’ll understand: Pbfthpt!
This would be hilarious if it wasn’t so true.
(It’s still hilarious, but it’s the kind of hilarity that goes with a heavy sigh.)
Have you ever heard of a Georgia search warrant? Five deputies go to a trailer park. Four of them go to the front door of the trailer they want to enter while the other goes to the back of it. One deputy knocks on the door and the one in back hollers, “Come in…”
Why is he even complaining??? His is not even a double wide!!
Dang it! There goes the plan to get a window awning so we could keep up with the neighbor.
How long will it take for them to realize the majority of us won’t be paying any increase in Taxes that isn’t related to the fact that the Republican’s made our tax cut temporary.
The woman on the porch has that look of, “Why do I stay with this moron?”
Try reasoning with these people. I have. On these pages. People making $14.57/hour opposing universal health care and taxes on the rich. I couldn’t have made something like that up, it’s just toooo ridiculous. But there they are, 10s of millions of them.
While I’m all for the tax increases, realistically some of that increase is going to get passed on in the form of higher prices. It then becomes a VAT (Value Added Tax) on goods sold. That way everyone pays something and not just those with incomes over $400k. An increase in minimum wage will work the same way with price increases.
For some reason, [propaganda/disinformation?] the middle-class “Republicans” think that they are much wealthier than they actually are.
Not only do some states contribute more to the federal budget than others, but some also receive less from the federal government in return. On average, each of our 50 states receives about $1.14 from the federal government for every tax dollar they send to Washington.
This is why our federal government runs a deficit every year. The traditional red states mentioned above, however, receive more — much more. For example, Mississippi received $2.13 for every tax dollar it sends to Washington by way of federal taxes, West Virginia $2.07, Kentucky $1.90, and South Carolina $1.71.
For some large traditional blue states, California receives only 96 cents, Massachusetts 83 cents, Connecticut 82 cents, New York 81 cents, and New Jersey 74 cents for every tax dollar they sent to Washington. The discrepancy is significant.
Pathetic but true. The GQP knows exactly what they are doing and they are all corrupt.
The world average corporate tax rate is 21-22 . Biden is proposing 28. I do think this step would be problematic.
The brainwashing force is strong on this one (and many others).
It’s the Lottery delusion. “Someday I might win the lottery and get rich and then Boy Howdy am I gonna love tax cuts.”
Everyone who doesn’t realize that corporate taxes are paid by the consumer in higher prices should take an economics class.
Let’s see Ike funded his infrastructure plan with a 90 percent corporate tax. If you invested back into your company you avoided taxes on the investment.
Can’t fix stupid!
The sad fact is he is so deluded that he actually believes he is going to be promoted from his job working on a chicken processing line to CEO of Tyson Chicken making $1 million+.
Or as the WSJ calls them, the “middle class.”
The Earnhardt flag is a nice touch.
The only things missing in this ’toon is a can of pabst and a pack of marlboros.
Who is getting richer during the pandemic? Who is getting poorer? Sit back and watch capitalism in action.
Ever since the South was settled the white working man/small farmer has believed he has two choices identify with the wealthy planter class who will keep the black man/slave in his place-below the poor white man or join on equal terms with the black man and maybe together gain more wealth. He has always opted for the former.
Where’s all the trash and beer bottles?
Raise tax rates; shrink deductions and credits, and overstaff the IRS to enforce the law against the tax-dodging class.
There goes that trip to Cabo San Lucas, huh, Bubba?
Great depiction of making a point. I know I won’t have to worry about that tax. Not all trailer parks are republican tenants and “Trump goobers”.
I’ll bet they make recurring donations to the “Trump help me line my own pockets” Stop The Steal fund.
If he made over $400,000 he would have a double wide.
LOL, my Trumper nephew started claiming the day after Trump was elected that Trump would make him rich by slashing his taxes… all throughout Trump’s term, that nephew never quit complaining about lack of money – he certainly never got rich… but now he claims that if Trump just had four more years it would happen…
7% on corporate income taxes? Wait until they start running overseas. Good plan!
Meanwhile T-p and the RNC drain their bank accounts through shady donor tactics.
And they worry about raising taxes on people making over $400K. What rubes.
This strip are my next door neighbors. Really nice people but they believe the craziest things.
I envisioned the old Trump supporter and “Q” believer saying, “The South Shall Rise Again”, as the dam breaks holding back all the turds in the massive lake of sewage and floats the entire trailer park down stream. A rising tide of sewage lifts all trailers . . . . over the top of the Confederate flagpoles too. Bless their hearts. Is it too soon to talk about infrastructure ?
Florida Elections Commission general counsel arrested on child porn charges
Eric Lipman also served as an officer with a nonprofit soccer league for boys and girls aged 4-17.
The general counsel for the Florida Elections Commission was arrested Wednesday on charges of possession of child pornography, according to court records.
Eric M. Lipman, 59, was charged with 11 counts of the crime and taken to the Leon County Detention Facility.
Tim Vaccaro, executive director of the Elections Commission, confirmed Lipman’s arrest in an email to the Tallahassee Democrat.
“The commission is fully cooperating with law enforcement’s investigation,” Vaccaro said. “The employee has been placed on administrative leave pending further information.”
The Leon County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest Wednesday, thouh it did not identify Lipman as an attorney with the Elections Commission.
Detectives with the Sheriff’s Office’s Internet Crimes Against Children Unit got a tip Feb. 24 from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children about possible child porn downloaded by a local individual.
After a six-week investigation, detectives developed Lipman as the suspect. On Wednesday, the Sheriff’s Office, Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Homeland Security Investigations executed a search warrant at his home on Benchmark Trace.
“As a result of the investigation and evidence discovered in the search warrant, Lipman was arrested and charged with 11 counts of possession of child pornography,” LCSO said.
He was placed on pretrial release during his first court appearance Thursday morning. He was ordered to stay off the internet, except for work purposes, and told to stay away from places where children gather.
Yep, they’re gonna be in trouble when their PowerBall Lotto numbers win…
