Ask any 10 liberals that question, most won't have an answer, of those who do it will be illogical nonsense, and no two can give you the same answer to the question.
Even if the libs in question in your hypothetical did have IQs above room temperature, they wouldn’t really care about the answer.
Their “analysis” ceases precisely at the point where they feel good about themselves for advocating a certain policy.
and this is my reasoning for going over the financial cliff full speed ahead..
most, if not all, who voted for fubo came of age during the bushie years, hearing nothing but how the evil tax cuts destroyed the economy...
most, if not all, have never had to have their wages confiscated under the clinton tax rates..
now, instead of 47% not paying taxes, about 18% will not pay taxes..
and those checks you got even if you did not pay taxes are gone..
lower income workers ( mostly fubo voters ) will see their tax rates double or even triple..
and in the end we will have a whole new class of republicans..
Then they'll call you a racist.
It never fails. Name calling is their last resort.
What happens after that is of no consequence to liberals because in their view justice will have been served. The goal is to punish success and redistribute wealth so that we are ALL equally miserable.
Rush's best description of liberalism (and I don't know if it's original or borrowed) is "sharing misery equally". "2016" also nailed it.
Liberals are quite content with everyone being miserable because people who are miserable are more easily enslaved.
Those sorry excuses for human beings will say its “about fairness.”
Somehow they missed the fact that taxes should be about revenue, not fairness.
