Many of us know rich liberals who shout " the rich must pay their fair share" or " we need to raise taxes on the rich" or " no tax cuts for the rich". Even if we don't know anyone personally we know celebrities and politicians that shout the talking points. My question is however, why don't Jon Liebowitz, Joy Behar pay 39% now? Or why doesn't Obama pay 39% now. John Kerry docks his yacht in Rhode Island to avoid taxes but demands higher taxes. Many of us also know rich liberals that use every tax scam or write off or run cash businesses and declare bupkiss and pay low rates but demand salaried people pay more. Many of us know rich liberals, whose home , car vacations etc are a " business expense" but demand eveyone else pay more. Shouldn't they put their money where their mouth is?
Do as I say, not as I do.
the want to use everyone elses money to pay for the programs not theirs.
Heck, they don’t even want to pay the reduced taxes that they owe as a result of the Bush tax cuts. (See Daschle, Rangle, Turbo Tax Timmy, and about half of Zero’s staff.)
They like the view from their high horse...
It is just a way of life for them. Taxes are for YOU to pay!
Sort of like Kerry and him docking his boat where he would avoid local taxes.
In MA the income tax was reduced from 5.8 to 5.3 per cent but people can choose on their income tax forms to pay at the higher rate. Very few do. You’d think the libs who complain about a lack of revenue would “check that box”.
Same reason why liberals traditionally give proportionately less to charities than do conservatives.Too inconvenient.
For the same reason they don’t believe in tipping the help, or even paying for services when there are flunkies around.
Because the most dangerous place in the entire world is to be between a liberal and their money.
They are fine when they are spending somebody else’s money though.
Because they pay millions in attorney’s fees/accounting fees to keep from paying any taxes!
Yes, they are liberal hypocrites hiding behind their wish for us to pay more in taxes for their pet projects.
They talk a good game but they aren’t about to put any money where their mouth is.
This is why we don't need tax payer paid government social programs. Wealthy liberals ( Kerry's, Kennedy's, Obomas, Reid's, Pelosis, Clinton's......) who believe in them can simply donate and take care of the issues that concern them. Those who wish to support other things, can. Those who chose to support nothing can do that as well.
We'd be a free country again if this where the way we did it. This is what we need to get back to - charity.
Excellent point. O’Reilly mentioned this in2004 and also mentioned that Kerry opted for the lesser tax.
For the life of me I’ll never understand why Bush didn’t make an issue of this or why the Reps don’t about Obama
Cuz they’re greedy hypocritical pricks.
