In an amazing example of projection, Paul Ryan accuses Democrats of doing just what Republicans have been so successful at doing for the last decade, using “fear, envy and anxiety.”
Fox News: (Paul Ryan) accused President Obama of appealing to Americans' "fear, envy and anxiety" by pushing a new tax rate on people making more than $1 million annually, saying the "class warfare path" will only hurt the economy.
Can you imagine starting a “class war” with opponents so wealthy that they could buy enough influence and power to crush you like an ant? Who would be that dumb? Paul Ryan thinks we are. Fox 47:
Like all Humpty Dumptyisms, where “you can make words mean so many different things,” Ryan tests the bounds of credulity with every pronouncement.
"If you tax something more, you get less of it," Ryan said.Is that supposed to make us sad? The rich get less? For the last 20 years, the middle class got less, in wages!! Polling says yes, tax the richest 1% for gods sake, the ones who have enjoyed the lowest percentage of taxes on their income ever.
In a string of idea’s that can’t possibly make sense, Ryan starts with a doozy.
"If you tax job creators more, you get less job creation. If you tax their investment more, you get less investment."
The job creators have already got their tax cuts, nothing has changed since the Bush tax cuts, and they did nothing. As for the investor class; Is Ryan saying the wealthy will stop trying to make more money? Someone should ask Ryan if investors will be willing to give up on their already fat incomes. I'm guessing not.
