Democrats Attack Americans’ Aversion to Taxes
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 16 June 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 06/18/2012 4:55:42 PM PDT by John Semmens

Two prominent Democrats laid into Americans who don’t want to pay higher taxes.

First, former Vermont Governor Howard Dean professed himself to be “tired of all this anti-tax rhetoric we’re 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 can’t wait to get back to the Senate so he can vote for higher taxes. “You know, I was the deciding vote for President Clinton’s 1993 tax increase bill,” Kerrey crowed. “At the time, that was the biggest single tax hike in US history. I’d like a shot at topping that record if I can. The notion that some people have that they are over-taxed doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. As I see it, if you have any money that hasn’t been taxed away you aren’t over-taxed.”

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.

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?
