Skip to comments.HUD Secretary Says More Taxes Needed to Subsidize Latinos
Posted on 09/17/2012 1:24:13 PM PDT by John Semmens
In a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan argued that taxes should be raised to support more subsidies for Latinos.
On balance, Latinos are more apt to be tax-consumers rather than tax-payers, Donovan pointed out. A robust program of government investment in housing, food stamps, and welfare disproportionately benefits Latinos. The GOPs plan to cut this spending, on the other hand, would disproportionately hurt Latinos.
Donovan admitted that making the case for tax hikes is not an easy one. The Republicans have done a pretty good job of making the IRS into a bogeyman. But you only need to be afraid if youre part of the minority that pays taxes. Most Latinos, though, especially those without documents, are in the majority who are exempt from income taxes. We need to get the message out that raising these taxes is basically a free ride for most Latinos.
In related news, the Environmental Protection Agency commemorated Hispanic Heritage Month by touting Che Guevara as the kind of champion of social justice that Latinos everywhere can look to for inspiration. He gave his life fighting for a more equitable redistribution of wealth. Surely we can give our votes.
