Biden Gaffe’s It Up – Jared

Right to the point on this one. Biden says that it is patriotic for those who are rich to pay more taxes. As Bill O’Reilly put it, “the government wants 50% of my success”. Obama stringently denied that (39% actually….) but to characterize it like that is quite painful. The government wants 30, 40% of what I make. I’m sorry, that is ridiculous.
I am all about some low taxes and honestly having lived in Tennessee for the last 2 years, I really wonder what would happen if we had a Flat Tax. Tennessee has no state income tax, only a sales tax at 9.975% or something like that. You notice it some (California has a 7.75% + CRV on bottles of stuff) out here compared to home but you factor it in after awhile when you are thinking about buying stuff.
But back to Biden. I’m sorry Biden, but let us be fair. You are totally stirring up class strife, or more correctly trying to, by insisting on an equitable system rather than a fair system. The equitable system you and your running mate seem to desire is just beyond the realm of economic reason. Who has taught you this stuff? An equal system will only result in class warfare, economic decline, staggering tax rates, and then a welfare state. Though having watched liberals as long as I have (all of 5 or 6 years) I start to wonder if that is not your ultimate goal. Are you so power hungry that you want to dictate like China does?
China is chasing us. Let us not make in any easier for them to catch up. If they want to be the best, they’ll have to recognize that certain freedoms and liberties are a large part of it. And a tax hike or your kind Mr. Biden (be it 39% or 50% on the “rich”) would not be prudent. Besides, the system already isn’t fair. The richest 10% pay 70% of the taxes. Shame on you Mr. Biden to think 10% of America should pay more than 7/10ths of the federal operating budget.
Biden update: Biden is scrutinizing the few reporters that follow him quite closely apparently.
