Posted on 06/18/2012 4:55:42 PM PDT by John Semmens
Two prominent Democrats laid into Americans who dont want to pay higher taxes.
First, former Vermont Governor Howard Dean professed himself to be tired of all this anti-tax rhetoric were hearing from the Tea Party types. Anybody who has money in America only has it because the government has allowed them to have it. If the government says it needs more of that money you have no moral right to object.
In Nebraska, Democratic senate candidate Bob Kerrey says he cant wait to get back to the Senate so he can vote for higher taxes. You know, I was the deciding vote for President Clintons 1993 tax increase bill, Kerrey crowed. At the time, that was the biggest single tax hike in US history. Id like a shot at topping that record if I can. The notion that some people have that they are over-taxed doesnt stand up to scrutiny. As I see it, if you have any money that hasnt been taxed away you arent over-taxed.

YEAH AND THE GOVERNMENT HELPED THEM EARN IT, so the Government must be paid it’s “wages”..
This Democrat Senator is an idiot of the 1st Class!Q
WTF?? I’m supposed to enjoy giving my money to a bureaucrat who gives it away to someone who doesn’t want to work so he can get reelected? You’ve got to be kidding. I hope this guy’s constituents kick him out of office.
I have learned to look before I leap (lol).
Another “what they would say if they spoke their minds” one!
Despite the fact this is “satire”, I believe that Howard “The Scream” Dean does indeed think this way.
Per usual John, I had my editorial response half written, in my head, before seeing your tell-tail tag.
Keep up the great work!
Dean: “If the government says it needs more of that money you have no moral right to object. —> can’t he be arrested as a commie?
