THIS Is Funny

He apparently said it *90 times* this past week in speeches, "PASS THIS BILL".

I can honestly say I have no idea what he's talking about - no idea what the *bill* is as I don't follow the din of contemporary politics.

But I'm quite sure that more rules, regs, and money printing in Washington isn't going to help the economy.

I do thank him for the damn good, teleprompter-skipping, laugh though!

It's about asking 0.3% of households who make over a million dollars to pay the same tax rate you do.

But what will that accomplish besides feel-good class warfare?

We have a *cost* problem, not a revenue one, right?

Those wealthy people will simply move even more $$$$ out of the country. And they'll eliminate jobs for the average Joe.

Class warfare is, minimally, a rhetorical deflection from reality.

I most liberally think everyone's income taxes should be reduced - the .3% included.

Nice phrase, thanks for that.

It's not asking if jail is the alternative ...

Also, dividends and long term capital gains (much of the wealthy's income) are taxed at a lower rate because the original money invested was already *post-tax*.

In other words, rich people make their money, pay their income taxes and then reinvest in the economy - generating products, services, jobs and thus more tax revenue for the government.

So why should they be double-taxed on this money AT ALL? How is that fair?
