Joe Biden said Thursday that paying more in taxes is the patriotic thing to do for wealthier Americans.
Is that it then, patriotism is all about dollars and cents and how much you pay, because if it is, then I think these people have done enough. They’re already paying for more than 75% of our government’s bloated budget. Is that not patriotic enough?
Biden might as well have told the mother depicted in “Saving Private Ryan” to suck it, Jimmy’s not coming home either.
If it’s all about dollars and cents, then what does this say about the 40% of Americans who don’t pay taxes? Joe, are they somehow unpatriotic? Gosh, I’ve been very partisan over the last month, but I wouldn’t go there. I mean Joe, for you to bad mouth your own base with such an unfair insinuation, that’s really ballsy, or cuckoo.
What I want to know is, if paying ZERO isn’t unpatriotic, then how are they (the 40%) proving their patriotism, or are we giving them a pass on that too?
If patriotism is all about dollars and cents, then I never heard a stronger argument for a flat tax.
