Posted on 06/01/2011 2:00:01 PM PDT by lowbridge
"All I know is, whenever you have any type of a problem and the problem is one that you spend more than you are actually bringing in then you have to bring in more and spend less. It just makes so much sense, Judge, it's all we have to do," Congressman Charles Rangel (D-NY) told FOX Business this evening

Said the tax cheat......
The only option you have is to spend less.
The gummint ain’t getting a “raise” any time soon.
In fact, if my performance at work was only one-tenth as bad as the average gummint worker, there would be no paycheck, let alone no raise.
That was Juan William’s solution.
Kiss my a$$ you old tax dodger.
Pay your share and then we might talk about it.
All We The People have to do is clean out the RATs and RINOs. Case closed! And, yes, that means scumbag Rangel.
This Tribute is for you Charlie ... Mr. Tax-Law Writing Tax Evader
When I first started as a Board Tech at Digital Equipment Corporation in 1978 (Jimmy Carter)we worked a lot of overtime because we were young and the money was great. After working a few Sundays for “Double Time” we noticed the math was off. So we divided the extra hours by the extra money and determined that we were ending up averaging $3 an hour. Less than half of our regular pay. That was the end of that.
According to President John F. Kennedy:
Our true choice is not between tax reduction, on the one hand, and the avoidance of large Federal deficits on the other. It is increasingly clear that no matter what party is in power, so long as our national security needs keep rising, an economy hampered by restrictive tax rates will never produce enough revenues to balance our budget just as it will never produce enough jobs or enough profits In short, it is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high today and tax revenues are too low and the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now.
...or get politicians to pay their taxes.
Yes, folks, he really IS that stupid.
And this is to say nothing of the collection O’cretins that actually elected this piece of excrement.
On all members of the press, the broadcast media, the entertainment industry.
And ALL professional National Basketball League players.
They should be taxed at 95% of their income, PLUS 95% of their current wealth in all categories.
Oh, c'mon. Keeping it in can ruin your health.
That sounds good, lets do that. (Julia Roberts quote from some movie) Good airhead response.
spend less Charlie??
What a despicable character Rangel is.
It would only get pulled.
I’m going to have to agree with Rangel here................we need to spend less and tax more
Let’s start with the 42 % of Americans who pay NO FEDERAL TAXES AT ALL
When it comes to all things economic, liberals are one trick ponies - spend.
Did Charlie ever pay his taxes?
Ask a leftist how to discourage something, like smoking and their second response will be to increase taxes on it (the first will probably be imprisonment). So somewhere in the echo chamber of their heads, leftists realize that when you increase taxes on an activity, that activity will decrease.
Yet at the same time, they believe that if they increase taxes on an activity, the increase in revenues will be proportional to the rate of increase. Then they're surprised when the revenues are far less than they projected, and in some cased, less than they were taking in before the increase.
Heck, even Obama has admitted that he knows that reducing taxes will increase revenues to the government, but he is against it for "fairness."
The best example I ever heard was when a state (I believe it was Illinois) decided to increase the tax rates on casinos. It was "progressive" so as the casinos made more, they paid an increasing tax rate. The casinos realized that if they made more than a certain amount, the higher tax rates made operations less than profitable. So they cut back on the hours that the casinos were operating. Since the entire tax scale had increased, the state did take in a bit more money, though far less than projected... However that was more than offset by the number of people who were laid off or had their hours cut by the casino. The actual revenues to the state were less than before the tax increase.
The “No Alternative Maximum Tax”
You make, we take it.
I’m wondering whatever happened to those 4 rent controlled apartments he had. As I understood it, when it comes to rent controlled apartments, youre only allowed one to a family. And that family has to be poor (Rangel is a millionaire). Plus he was using one of those apartments as a political campaign office (also illegal)
