Bernie Sanders Wants To Tax Americans At 90%. His Reasoning Is Priceless...
Yes this is a real thing. No Bernie Sanders didn't have a public meltdown of epic, Charlie-Sheen proportions. This is what he believes. It's what he's always believed.
Remember this when you leftist friends talk about how "radical" the "far right" has become in this country. Please, remember this.
In an interview with NBC News, Bernie Sanders stated:
“When radical, socialist Dwight D. Eisenhower was president, I think the highest marginal tax rate was something like 90 percent.”
The interviewer followed up by asking, “When you think about something like 90 percent, you don’t think that’s obviously too high?" Sanders replied
“No. What I think is obscene, when you have the top one-tenth of one percent owning almost as much as the bottom 90.”
What I find particularly hilarious is that Bernie Sanders goes on to say that Conservatives are "so greedy, so out of touch with reality"... as he dines in what appears to be an expensive restaurant in the most expensive city in the country. What's okay for him is not okay for you!
Also it's important to note that the rich not only pay most taxes in this country, they pay all the taxes, according to one of NBC's own (albeit buried) reports. When it comes to individual income taxes, the top 40 percent of wage earners in America pay 106 percent of the taxes. The bottom 40 percent...pay negative 9 percent.
And I'm no economist, but if I knew that I'd be working for 90 percent of the year for free... I may consider retirement. Which would result in forced retirement for all of my employees as well. Again, just little ol' dumb Crowder using his thinky-think ability.
Again, remember that media narrative that Conservatives are becoming "too radical"? Well allow me to compare the two factions through this scientifically calibrated, internet meme below.
Can you spot the "extremist"?
