Standing against big government and for the people!
A Liberal phoned into the Rush Limbaugh show this afternoon, claiming to be pleased that tax rates had been increased, asked fill-in host Doug Urbanski to stop using the term “class warfare”, and that Mitt Romney should be held upside-down so that all his money could fall out of his pockets. In a few minutes, this caller from NJ illustrated what it is that we dislike about Liberals-lack of tolerance, class envy, and arrogance.
Liberals so love the poor that they strive to create as many of them as possible. I believe that instead of trying to bring the so-called “rich” down to our level, how about we strive to lift more folks into prosperity? Soaking the rich is like rooting for your favorite sports team; you’ll celebrate when they win a championship, but it won’t change a thing about your daily routine.
The fact that Mitt Romney pays more taxes in a year than I’ll probably pay in a lifetime belies the stupid Liberal “pay your fair share” meme. A simple math problem will illustrate:
A tax rate of 15% on income of $1,000,000 equals a $150,000 tax bill while 30% of $40,000 gives you a tax bill of $12,000. Which one of these two is paying their “fair share”? In reality, someone making $40,000 probably has a mortgage and children; more than likely they will see a refund in the thousands of dollars. So I ask again, who is paying a “fair share”?
Raising tax rates on the so-called rich hurts everyone who’s trying to get ahead in life. Business owners who struggle to meet payroll will have to choose between raising prices on goods, employee furloughs, or reductions in pay raises and benefits to employees. Employees who are trying to carve out a good life for themselves have to contend with the increased payroll tax that went into effect with the supposed resolution of the “fiscal cliff”, eroding their take-home pay by 2%.
Government spending is the problem but the solution is simple-government needs to cut spending. Until spending is cut, financial confiscation by legislative fiat will never solve the real problem.
