Have you seen this?
Senate Democrats plan to draft a budget blueprint that calls for significantly higher taxes on the wealthy, oil and gas companies and corporations doing business overseas, reopening a battle over taxes Republicans had hoped to lay to rest with the “fiscal cliff.”
This would be funny if it weren’t so pathetic. Look, we can tax 100% of ALL income in this nation and, if Washington refuses to cut spending, it will not be enough. You see, as much as these insane — yes, insane people in Washington claim that we do not have a spending problem, WE HAVE A SPENDING PROBLEM! Think about it: could you spend MORE than 100% of the entire world’s income — if you wanted to? yes, yes you could. So how can you ever balance a budget without cutting spending? You can’t.
So what does this story tell us? It tells us that our politicians do not care about balancing the budget — not the Democrats or Republicans. So that leaves us having to wonder what they are really trying to do. Ponder that one long enough and you will eventually wind up at Cloward and Piven and/or a Marxist redistribution of American wealth.
