Tax day came and went. Some of you got money back from the interest-free loan you gave the government. Wondering why your bridges and roads aren’t fixed. Others are complaining because they’re low-information progressives who don’t realize they were getting more in their paycheck every week thanks to President Trump. Then there are people like Bernie Sanders. Who yells “FAIR SHARE” a lot. When he isn’t yelling at the clouds.
Bern held a town hall on Fox News. Yes, THAT Fox News. The usual “fair share,” “the 1%”, “millionaires and billionaires” we’ve come to expect. At which point the hosts were like “Bernie, cool your jets.”
MARTHA: So would you be willing to pay 52% on the money that you made? You can volunteer, you can send it back.
BELLIGERENT OLD MAN: You can volunteer too…w hy don’t you give? You make more money than I do.
MARTHA: I didn’t suggest a wealth tax.
BRETT: And she’s not running for POTUS.
This is where leftist hypocrisy is most on display. Or their concept of “patriotic millionaires” who want their taxes raised. If these millionaires were really as “patriotic” as they like to virtue signal, they’d just give the government more of their money. Voluntarily. On their own. Because taxes are what they love. That’s patriotism, right? Asking what you can do for your country instead of what your country can do for you?
JFK said that. He also liked cutting taxes. And would have no place is today’s extremist Democrat Party as Bernie Sanders flaps his arms like a loon trapped in a lawn chair.
