A "gift to the rich"

December 6, 2017

I recently wrote about how the left can’t win a debate by citing the success of their policies – like, anywhere – so they have to keep constantly changing the terms.  For instance, liberals became “progressives” who call illegal aliens “immigrants” and taxes “contributions” and propaganda “news.”  Here are some more examples from David Harsanyi, taken from the hysterical reaction to the GOP tax reform bill. 

He left out one of Nancy Pelosi’s favorites: it’s a “gift to the rich.”  Because letting you keep a little bit more of the money you earned is a “gift” from Washington.  Why, to believe that, someone would have to believe that all money belongs to the government and it’s only through their generosity that you are allowed to have anything at all!  Oh, wait…of course.  For a second there, I forgot who we were talking about.

    I found the perfect way to avoid paying any taxes whatsoever...live to the age of 84 and pay your bills on your Social Security check. I worked for 40 years...I deserve to get my money back.

    That's similar to Paul Ryan saying Social Security is an entitlement. It IS not and Congress should pay back what they 'borrowed.'

    Since most in Congress are worth millions, might they forfeit their "public servant" pay and benefits back into the federal budget. They earn about $176,000/yr x 535 members = $94,160,000. of the annual budget, plus pension, medical benefits with Obamacare credit ($12,000/yr)because they each claim themselves as a small business with less than 50 employees. I thought that the staff was considered federal employees paid for by the American peoples tax dollars. If so, double dipping?? They sure know how to spew their indignations for the cameras but you sure don't see them putting their money where their mouths are! They are all HYPOCRITES! Maybe they should take a lesson from President Trump and donate their salaries to a charity.
