Top things I’m tired of hearing from the left: Tax the Rich. Shared Sacrifice. The millionaires won’t miss it.
Top things they need to hear: We have a spending problem. No new taxes. Period.
When I engage in debate with Democrats on the Minnesota Government shutdown, their argument is always the same. “The millionaires won’t miss it. Tax the rich.” This shutdown is casting a bright light on class warfare at its worst.
I always ask the same question: If you have $20 more than your neighbor, does that give them the right to come over and take your $20 because they want to spend more and don’t have enough money? Interestingly enough, nobody ever answers that. Somehow theft is okay when we are talking millionaires, but it doesn’t apply to the common man.
Here’s the bottom line (very simplified): You don’t just take money because “they have it” and “we want it.” You don’t increase spending when we are in economic turmoil. And, you certainly don’t stick it to the only people keeping the economy going, while increasing the entitlement mentality of those who pay no taxes.
Is it really that hard to understand?
