Whenever one of these birds proposes yet another tax, we should counter by calling for the creation of a Democrat tax.
1) It would apply only to registered Democrats, which makes sense, as they are the ones always bleating for more spending.
2) It should have no exemptions or “loopholes”, so all Democrats would have to pay, whether they were wealthy bankers or on welfare.
3) It should be a very progressive tax, so that Democrats who earn more than $100,000 should be in the 70% bracket, those earning more than $200,000 should be in the 80% bracket, and those earning more than $250,000 should be in the 90% bracket.
4) It should apply to all earnings of Democrats, should include capital gains on their earnings, a value added tax on their earnings, a carbon and green tax, inheritance and estate tax. And if none of those apply, then an alternative minimum tax.
Why not put a bounty on them instead and sell licenses.
