Some folks would rather strangle the golden goose than lift up the entire barnyard.
Purportedly the friends of the working class and down-trodden, once again the Pelosi Left in the House of Representatives has exhibited its true colors.
Presented with the opportunity to reach a number of their prized goals (or what they claim to be their prized goals), the Pelosi-ites instead reverted to their time-honored tradition of not just wealth envy, but a visceral hatred of the wealthy.
As a result, taxes will increase on the working poor by 50%, benefits will not be extended for the chronically unemployed, and scores of millions of lower and middle income workers will not see an economy-stimulating 2% reduction in their payroll taxes. All…all willingly sacrificed in order to punish our nation’s most productive and successful citizens.
Why not raise taxes on these wealthy few, moan the envious enemies of getting ahead, after all they represent such a very small minority.
To which one must logically respond: If the numbers are so few, why not forgo using them for political whipping things and instead help the much larger number you claim to care so much about? No need to respond; we all know the answer.
