Bloomberg: We need to levy painful taxes against the poor - to control their behavior - for their own good

<More Typical democrat Behavior/Policy Here>

While you were eating your Turkey, stuffing, and gravy which you shouldn't have been allowed to eat because it's bad for you an old video was going viral on Twitter and Facebook. It was originally shot at the IMF's 2018 Spring Meeting, but was given new life by the folks over at PJ Media. In it, newly announced 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg discusses taxation.

More specifically, he talks about how onerous taxes can be used to alter the behavior of the poor, because they'll feel the impact more acutely than the rich.

"[Some] say, well, 'taxes are regressive.' But in this case, yes they are, that's the good thing about them. Because the problem is in people that don't have a lot of money. And so higher taxes should have a bigger impact on their behavior and how they deal with themselves."

So I listen to people saying, 'Oh, we don't want to tax the poor.' Well, we want the poor to live longer so that they can get an education and enjoy life. That's why you do want to do exactly what a lot of people say you don't want to do.

The question is: do you want to pander to those people or do you want to get them to live longer?" he continued. "And there's just no question. If you raise taxes on full sugary drinks, for example, they will drink less. And there's just no question that full sugar drinks are one of the major contributors to obesity, and obesity is one of the major contributors to heart disease and cancer and a variety of other things."

In other words, you poor, little, wretches are too stupid to take care of yourselves, so Nanny Bloomberg is going to hit you in the pocketbook until you change. That's a spectacular level of arrogance the kind thing that politicians are usually smart enough not to say. Bloomberg's reputation for looking down on his supposed inferiors is apparently well-earned.

Before some argues that he has a point about the detrimental effects of sugary soda, allow me to agree. Yes. They're bad for you. The amount of sugar Americans intake is generally pretty shocking.

However, that's none of Bloomberg's business. We aren't subjects in this country.

I suppose thinking up ways to get normal people jobs instead of just more ways to tax them is out of the question?

Yes! I like it. "Control their Behavior".

And the behavior that MOST needs to be controlled is the tendency to vote for politicians who promise "free stuff" with the full expectation that the rest of us will be paying for it rather than themselves.

Go ahead, tax the bejeesus out of these people. Make them FINALLY start paying for the stuff they've been voting for. Make it painful. Tax them until their ears bleed.

To be fair it also the second and third thing he's done. Here'a a clip from an interview he did about China:

https://twitter.com/...950711188819968

Somehighlights:

1) Xi is a good man who leads with both the consent and love of his people

2) Ignore Hong Kong

3) China's pollution isn't a big deal

4) China's totally not communist, its a democracy where elections truly matter

Yet Bloomberg calls himself a republican? :wtf:

Of course he was once a democrap and he really never stopped being a commie democrap and just became a RINO merely for political opportunity.

All northeastern republicans are RINOS. They are really proggy democraps as they would NEVER have gotten elected to office up there in the first place if they really were conservative republicans because the people living up there are pretty much proggy commies themselves.

I remember many here were Romney "the commie" supporters and I had told them this about him and I was flamed repeatedly for it.

I was proven to be correct once again. :D
