First I will admit I know very little about the whole US Debt crisis etc etc. I do know that (Correct me if I am wrong) that essentially the Republicans do NOT want to tax the rich, but instead want to pull money from social programs.
I think this is a load of shit.
Lets think about this. A single mother working minimum wage to try and support her kids NEEDS that funding for daycare, and other social programs etc. Millions rely on this sort of thing. It is incredibly important.
So why pull from them, when you can take money via tax increases for the rich? Someone making $1,000,000 a year will hardly (if at all) notice the tax increase.
“Oh No, This tax increase will mean one less trip on my private jet next year”. or “I guess I will have to wait a few extra months to buy that new Porsche I want”. Don’t you think that putting food in the mouths of those in need is just slightly more important?
Frankly it makes me angry. It is this mentality that makes the rich richer and the poor poorer. Where is Robin Hood when you need him!
How much money does one person really need? There are some people who could literally spend a million $$ a day and NEVER run out of money! What is that?? They have so much money they couldnt spend it if they tried.
Sure, not all the rich have THAT much money, but even a salary of $500,000 a year is far more money than anyone NEEDS. Those that have this kind of money – those making huge unreasonable salaries got there on the backs of the poor – it is time they said “Thank you for making me super-duper rich, here are a few $$ back to try and pay down the debt”.
Grr. It all just makes me angry to see this.
