I think Al Gore may have outdone himself and proposed his most hilarious plan yet... wait for it..
...Gore also called for the complete elimination of the payroll tax. It would be replaced by a tax on CO2:
"For the last fourteen years, I have advocated the elimination of all payroll taxes including those for social security and unemployment compensation and the replacement of that revenue in the form of pollution taxes principally on CO2. The overall level of taxation would remain exactly the same. It would be, in other words, a revenue neutral tax swap. But, instead of discouraging businesses from hiring more employees, it would discourage business from producing more pollution..."
Nothing that Gore says surprises me anymore.
What does surprise me, is that the news media even pays any attention to him. That goes for Bill Clinton, Carter and McCain too.
Of course Comrade Al doesn't mean that he would do away with the income tax - according to the way that Commies speak (and lie), income tax withholding is not what they're thinking of when they talk about "payroll taxes". It's just a ploy (but then, when isn't everything that Demo/Commies advocate just a sneaky ploy), a rather baldfaced one at that, but just a ploy...
I still shudder.
Isn't that the damn truth? And to think Congress is at risk in less than 2 months is a very scary thought as well.
Do you have a link to this article?
No-thousands of manipulated ballots brought the Bush victory margin down to 537 votes. That plus the news media "calling" the election for Gore an hour before polls closed in the western part of the state. And the disqualifying of a few thousand military votes. And the deliberate miscounting of ballots in Dem. controlled districts. Etc., etc....
