Ted Cruz Scorches Bernie's Tax Plan: When He Says 'Rich' He Means 'Taxpayer!' [Video]
I love the smell of charred socialist flesh in the morning. Ted Cruz lit up Bernie again (see Ted Cruz Asks Maria Cantwell for Difference Between Democrat vs Socialist). This time nailing Bernie for what "rich" actually means. Hint: everyone who pays taxes.
Someone prep a hospital bed: Bernie Sanders needs all the lotion on his skin. He'll join a socialistic healthcare burn unit and die of gangrene.
CRUZ: When they say rich, they mean taxpayer. Why is it? It's because the very rich, there aren't enough of them.His tax plan was a massive tax increase. If you took every single person in America making over a million dollars, and you tax them 100% of their income... it would pay 8% of the cost of Bernie's tax plan. You know where they get their money? They get it from you. They get it from the middle class.
I'll give a quote from Bernie in the last debate...
So yes, to answer your question, Jake, if we can explain to people, yeah, you're going to be paying more in taxes... everybody will pay some more.
So, you're a single mom working? He says you're gonna pay some more. You're a small business owner? He says you're gonna pay some more. And the reason is there aren't enough millionaires and billionaires to pay for all the socialism that Bernie and the Democrats want to give away.
SANDERS: This is why politics in America stinks.
CRUZ: Thank you!
Democrats are like the candy man. Promising all the edibles in the world if you step into their windowless vehicle of socialism. Behold, those brownies were baked by Harvey Weinstein. They contains a few "special" ingredients. Just not the ones you were promised.
"The rich" to the left is anyone who earns a decent income. Where "decent" can be redefined at will. If you make money in this country, you need to pay more in taxes. According to socialists like Bernie Sanders. Because if you make money, you need to give that money to people who don't make money. "Fairness" is a socialist's way of taking your cash at gunpoint. So they can feel better about themselves as they pistol whip you. Pay up, citizen. Do it for your country.
