Senator: higher taxes make rich feel good when they look in the mirror Nicholas Ballasy - The Daily Caller 1 hr 25 mins ago
New Jersey Democrat Sen. Frank Lautenberg said on the Senate floor that raising taxes on the wealthy will make them feel good when they look in the mirror.
Ill tell this to all of my colleagues and I hope they hear me. I think its time for people like me who have made money to pay something back to give strength to our country and not argue about whether they pay enough tax they dont pay enough tax, said Lautenberg, former chairman and CEO of Automatic Data Processing (ADP) on Thursday.
Warren Buffet says they dont pay. They listen to him that they dont pay enough tax. It doesnt hurt those of us who have been successful the least bit to pay a few more percent in taxes, and you can feel good about it. Look in the mirror after you put something into the value that your country needs that strengthens the working class of people, that tells them listen, weve gotten our share and now its our responsibility to give back some part of that share.

Well, hell, why not tax it all away and they can ‘feel’ ecstatic!.................
The Dems are inciting violence with the rhetoric. Same rhetoric that drove Charles Manson and his ‘children’ to murder the ‘piggies’.
If they felt so good about it, they’d freely pay more and not hire lawyers and accountants to protect their money.
Politicians like him are probably the dumbest of the dumb except for the ones that actually vote for them.
This ancient, senile pinko doesn't dare look in a mirror himself. "Redistributing" wealth has always been in the communist playbook.

instead of being forced to pay it. So far this fiscal year 2,429,800.03 has been given. Only $2.4 million? I guess it doesn't feel that good after all.
Most if not all democRat policies are for the sole purpose of making the sheeperals feel good about themselves as “good people”.
geez...let's not be just plain stupid about this.
That is an exceptionally stupid remark, even from an idiot like the Lout.
I’d bet my house that he never volunteered one penny more than he was required to pay in federal taxes. Can’t stand either men who represent my state.
I know this would go over like a lead ballon. But for the pelosis & reids, who make tons of money. They would not be eligible for retirement funds or health care benefits.
What do you think?
The private sector “rich” don’t need to pay taxes to feel good. They are rich because their products and services apparently enrich others, not to mention the fact that as they grow their businesses, they provide more jobs.
Only in government can you get rich without enriching others.
Taxes are like Botox....
As we all know, we only pay taxes in order to “feel good”.
We’re coming for your money Frank and your POS party. Outlaw the democrat party like Germany did their Nazi counterparts. Jail and fine the leadership and confiscate everything they have to repay the american taxpayer.
FUBO & FAD
Where does the Constitution say that the role of the federal govt is to make people “feel good” when they look in the mirror?
Another elitists executive, chairman who supports higher taxes. It is their way of screwing over the middle class even more. They define the rich as someone who is not impoverished ! Such hypocrites ! They are they type of people to climb up economically but won’t think twice of pulling up the ladder behind them to keep anyone else from moving up economically as well !
So, feeling better by paying much more taxes even if is screws up the economy especially for those who are not well is the reason. So lame ! Just like when the 55 mph was in the process of being repealed, the late James Howard of NJ mentioned that NJ drivers have a right to the slow speed even when driving out West like in NJ and some other congressman out of WV, I think Rahall mentioned that it goes against human rights to get rid of the hated federal speed limit !
So the rest of us have to put up with so much extra bull—— by these do-gooders with their condescension towards us common people just so they can feel better !
I yell the word bull—— !
If higher taxes make one “feel good”, then how about raising taxes on the 47% of the wage earners in this country that pay NO FEDERAL INCOME TAX at all?
Tax the billionaires big time; leave everyone else alone. We can help them direct their “charity” in more productive ways. We can call it the socialist Billionaire tax. Give ‘em what they bought.
