Memo To Liberals: Higher Taxes Have Already Been Tried

Excerpt:

When you receive your paycheck and look at the withholding for federal, state, and sometimes city taxes, along with Social Security and Medicare, you probably donít think youíre underpaying governments and want them to take more.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio believes that if you have played by what used to be called ďthe rulesĒ and are making a decent living, taking care of yourself and your family, and not relying on government, your taxes should be increased.

In his State of the City address last week, de Blasio said, Ē Ö brothers and sisters, thereís plenty of money in the world. Thereís plenty of money in this city. Itís just in the wrong hands.Ē He continued:

You havenít been paid what you deserve for all the hard work. You havenít been given the time you deserve. Youíre not living the life you deserve. And here is the cold, hard truth: Itís no accident. Itís an agenda.

He blamed presidential administrations from Reagan to Trump.

The mayor ignores the tax cuts and in some cases spending reductions that have fueled an economic boom, producing more wealth for individuals and more revenue for governments.

The mayor is not alone in promoting unvarnished liberalism, which the many on the left have tried to mask behind the ďprogressiveĒ euphemism.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., suggests we institute a 70 percent tax rate on the wealthy. Julian Castro, the former mayor of San Antonio and Department of Housing and Urban Development secretary, who just announced he is running for president, has resurrected the ďfair shareĒ lingo of past Democrats. In an interview with ABC News, Castro seemed nostalgic for a time when the top marginal tax rate was 90 percent.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who has formed a presidential exploratory committee, hasnít said what top tax rate she favors, but she told CNBC last July that ď90 percent sounds pretty shockingly high.Ē Why, because it would stifle incentive? What about 80 percent? Why not confiscate all private-sector money and let the government decide how much each of us should be allowed to have? Wouldnít pure socialism be a dream come true for the far left?

Itís not that higher taxes and more government spending hasnít been tried. Lyndon Johnsonís Great Society, a series of U.S. programs charged with totally eliminating poverty and racial injustice in the country, is but one example. Johnson failed to achieve his goal of wiping out poverty because his social programs began in Washington, not in individual hearts and minds.

:mellow: Sounds like he's speaking to the Germans about how Da Jooos are to blame.

In other words, congratulations for not being aborted. You are now entitled to the fruits of other people's labor.
