WATCH: Bernie Sanders Says You WANT To Pay MORE in Taxes
On Wednesday, Bernie Sanders took a break from scaring the Scooby Gang away from the abandoned amusement park. No, not because of the early bird special at Denny's. He wanted to share with America how democratic socialism is just the cat's pajamas. And not just a way of screwing taxpayers, but being slightly nicer about it. Long story short, YOU GET A HUMAN RIGHT! AND YOU GET A HUMAN RIGHT! See also: Jean-Guy Tremblay Petitions for Everything to Be ‘Human Rights’ and Sorry, Marriage Is Not A Fundamental ‘Human Right’. Here’s Why….
Then he had this nugget for Anderson Cooper. The higher taxes we'd all be paying if all Bernie's soggy dreams came true? We'd all be delighted about it.
COOP: The taxes in many of those countries are much higher than they are in individual and personal taxes are much higher than they are in the United States.
OLD MAN YELLING AT CLOUDS: I suspect that a lot of people in the country would be delighted to pay more in taxes if they had comprehensive health care as a human right.
First of all, Slappy, if you have to pay for it? It's not a human right. That's not how human rights work.
Second, let's pretend what Bernie said is true. The people would be delighted to pay higher taxes for whatever the left's human right du jour is that week. Then stop lying to people that we can solve everything by only raising taxes on billionaires and millionaires. Even though you actually meant $250,ooo-a-yearaires. Tell your supporters, "Guess what kids? Your Uncle Bernie is here and I'm going to raise all your taxes. But it's going to be awesome!"
He doesn't do that because you know it's not true. It just sounds cool to people who don't understand how to math. Or who don't have any income which will be taxed. Ah. Now you're getting it.
