We will not raise taxes on the richest Americans! No tax increases! It's our sacred vow!! Not now, not ever!! Never!! Never! Never!! Although it's not a hard and fast rule.
More propaganda from Carlson. Raising taxes on “the rich” raises them for all. It’s a fact. It effects the poor and middle class far more than it does “the rich,” and it always will. When will you idiots on the left realize that the only reason you want tax increases ONLY on “the rich” (which is a myth) is because you AREN’T “rich,” and you simply want to punish them.
Here are two prevailing myths about raising taxes on “the rich”: 1) they increase revenues, and 2) they only effect those who they are supposedly aimed to punish. Firstly, when you tax anything (especially income) you effect the activity of the taxed in ways where they will attempt to avoid paying taxes, or to keep from investing money that they would otherwise spend. A vast amount of money is taken out of what you pay for gasoline, so if you avoid driving as much as you used to, then perhaps you can come to understand this concept. Ergo, when you raise taxes on income, those who are taxed will find ways to avoid them, and LESS money is actually taken through said tax.
Secondly, EVERYONE is punished by tax increases, regardless of whether your tax rate is raised or not. Punishing the private sector changes hiring practices, causes rises in prices, destroys incentive, and overall makes for a hostile environment in the marketplace. You all want to knock “the rich” down a few rungs on the ladder, but spreading the misery around increases the misery far more for the poorer classes in America (who, on average, are far better off than 90% of the rest of humanity), and barely touch “the rich” in terms of effecting their lifestyles in the least.
Class hatred is the bases for all of this sad desire to spread misery, but in the end you are only destroying your own lives in the process. Nothing will satisfy your envy of anyone who makes a buck more than you do, and that’s delusional. I pity you.
