Republican Wise Ass Rep. Dale Kooyenga's advice to rich who don't want tax cut; give it to charity.

Where do bad accountants go, like Dumb Ron Johnson? Into politics of course. We've got another one. More on that shortly.

It seems Republicans can’t stop making condescending comments to the public. As adults, we should be getting fed up with this stuff.

On WPR’s Joy Cardin radio program, a caller who made over $100,000 a year complained she didn't need the tax cut, and that it should have been geared to those with much lower incomes.

On his way to pose for holy pictures, accountant and Republican Rep. Dale Kooyenga called in to give his self-righteous advice to the concerned carry citizen; give the surplus to her church or charity:


Kooyenga could have targeted to those tax cuts to those who really needed them. Instead, he broadly gave them out to the wealthy who’ll obviously get the most money back:
A memo from the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau showed almost 55 percent of the tax cut would go to people who make more than $100,000 or more.  
Kooyenga’s response? 
"We are just giving back what people have paid us, and it's in proportion to what was paid, nothing more, nothing less."
He could have easily suggested taking that unwanted surplus and hand it over to his reelection campaign.

Actually, tax cuts for the rich are indeed just that- an easy way to have those folks funnel money to your re-election campaign.

No jobs are created and no one other than the two interests end up better off, but it's a nice win-win for the two people making the deal.

There's a reason we call this smug prick "Koo-Koo"
