Republicans seem able to successful dismiss the thought of making the rich pay more in taxes as “class warfare” and “raising taxes” and it seems to be a successful tactic among their base.
How are they so good at getting nearly half of america to shed tears for the Poor Oppressed Rich? Do people vote Republican because they empahize with the plight of the CEO that has to wait a couple extra months to buy a yacht?
Why is so terrible to tax the rich? What cramp are we putting on their lifestyles that is so intolerable? I’m not just talking numbers in their bank accounts. I’m talking about the food they eat, the houses they live in, the cars they drive. If some raking in 50 million a year has to pay 30 million in taxes, why should we give a damn?
