Republicans don’t know how grotesque their “cute,” cruel little games look to adult voter in America.
Allowing greedy million and billionaires off the hook by proposing a "prank" bill that would allow those who want to pay more in taxes to do so, by Sen. John Thune and Rep. John Scalise, is a mean spirited insult to the American public.
Fox News: Thune said, “This bill would make it easier for those wealthy individuals who feel they are currently under-taxed to pay more to the U.S. Treasury above and beyond their current obligations, without raising taxes on America’s job creators.”
Scalise said, “If Warren Buffett truly feels that he’s not paying enough in taxes, he doesn’t need a change in law to put his money where his mouth is, he can send his check for a larger amount to the Treasury today.”
These politicians aren’t grownups, they’re cry baby con artists, who think they’re being clever and funny.
Condescending clap trap like “the nation’s wealthiest pay more in taxes than the middle class or the poor,” should be answered with resounding “of course they do because they’re making way more money.” They really think we’re that stupid?
But supporters are still seizing on its message. “Sen. Thune should be commended for solving Warren Buffett’s seemingly intractable problem,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, “Thanks to Sen. Thune’s leadership, Mr. Buffett soon will be able to simply write a check when he thinks the government can spend his money better than he can.”
No, the greedy rich should pay too.
The Republican Party’s cheap insulting parlor tricks prove they’re not interested or serious about making government work for the people.
It’s all a big joke to them.
