So says Joe Biden….
“We want to take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people,” Biden said in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Noting that wealthier Americans would indeed pay more, Biden said: “It’s time to be patriotic … time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.”
I believe Joe has a fundamental flaw in his understanding. Those of us who have been paying taxes have been ‘part of the deal’ all along. Those of us who vote…part of the deal. Those of us who run a business, employ people, contribute to our communities, pay our bills, purchase things…we’ve jumped in. Those of us who hold politicians accountable – that’s part of the deal. I would suggest that it’s the ego of politicians and the greed of some businesses that have gotten us in a rut. It’s the do-nothing Congress that has gotten us in a rut. It’s the power hungry elected official (local, state and federal) that has weakened this country.
Tying patriotism to taxes has to be one of the stupidest and most offensive things I’ve heard.
Hi Joe! You’re still a Doofus
