Hillary Clinton: Raise Taxes on Rich Everywhere
CNBC/Yahoo Finance ^ | Sept 28, 2012 | John Carney

Posted on 09/28/2012 7:04:30 AM PDT by Innovative

It's no secret that the foreign policy of the United States tends to reflect the world views of the occupant of the White House.

"One of the issues that I have been preaching about around the world is collecting taxes in an equitable manner - especially from the elites in every country," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in her speech at the Clinton Global Initiative Monday.

What Clinton meant by "contribute to growth" was revealing. She listed contributing to building schools and hospitals rather than domestic business investment, which is the conventional meaning of contributing to growth.

Rush Limbaugh: The Makers Pay for the Takers

http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2012/09/27/the_makers_pay_for_the_takers

“That’s the whole point of supply-side or whatever you want to call it, of trickle-down economics. The whole point of conservatism is you have as many people working as possible and paying taxes. You spread the burden around, but you increase — with lower taxes — employment and the number of people paying taxes. Today, 240 million people out of 310 are not paying for anything, income tax-wise. Now, they are paying their Social Security and Medicare and all that, but in terms of the income tax share? Nothing.”

This is the UN’s way of saying the world needs Americans to pay higher taxes so we can’t distribute more to the world. Bunch of crap!

On a global scale, every single person in America is a member of “the Rich.”

I have a better idea, Hilldabeast, how about a SPECIAL 100% tax on all egg-sucking left-wing politicians like you, Pelosi, and Reid.

THAT should raise a LOT of money!

” Hillary Clinton: Raise Taxes on Rich Everywhere”

Because the inept and corrupt bureaucrats need more of your money to spend and play with.

There is no country with enough “wealthy” to pay for even their own country’s existing social programs. Now she wants them to also support the rest of the world? These people are insane.

Hillary wants to tax rich people in every country in an effort to stop rich people in America from running to another country to avoid being robbed here.

If they all tax the crap out of the rich there would be no where to run.

The mystery to me here is how much does Hillary pay and how would she write a loophole big enough for her and Bubba to squeeze through without giving everyone that same loophole.

One thing we do know is that Congress critters are not going to pass a higher tax on themselves and they ARE the rich.

You have to be aware of everyone’s assets if you’re intending to target the rich.

Yep, she would have been a better choice for president.

It would have looked different, to be sure, but it would have been a different flavor of hideous.

Obama's tenure is marked by America-hating, Ally-alienating, Muslim-extremist-embracing, and total disregard for the Constitution.

With Hillary, the America-hating might have toned down a notch, the alienation of our allies would have been less, there would have been nearly no Muslim extremist embracing, but the total disregard for the Constitution would still have been there. In fact, under Hillary, a second attempt to destroy the Second Amendment would have been front-and-center of her Regime's efforts.

Save your breath.

There are a lot of idiots here that still believe and will always believe no matter what, that the Clintons love the US and only want what’s best for the country.

These same people love to use the term “OBAMABOTS” about Obama supporters.

It's beyond maddening to me how they cling to the Clintons.

The guy that lives in a cardboard box is rich compared the the guy that doesn't have a bot to live in.

When everyone around the world is equal with ZERO personal wealth, then and only then will they stop.

If it’s so important to you , Hillary, then you pay for it.

Give all your money to the federal government.

I’m not giving you another dime, you traitorous snake.

Except for her stint in the Rose Law Firm, this woman is a welfare queen who has been earning her money from the public trough and through shady book deals and of course the Whitewater scandal that was whitewashed by our bended knees media.

I used to think Hillary had some brains. Was I ever wrong about that. What a dumb ass she turned out to be. Apparently she fooled Bill pretty good too.

She doesn’t want taxes raised to the point where SHE is no longer rich. Just raise the taxes on OTHER people.
