One thing that has troubled me lately, is the amount of people that are against taxing the rich. They all spout the same nonsense that if they are taxed, they will just leave and they already pay taxes. Always too, they have to comment that after all its socialism if we tax the rich more. I think that one always makes me laugh the most. Yet at the same time, I am worried and wonder just what it will take to get those still out in ‘fox news zombie land’ to understand that its just been 32 years of the ‘elite’ brainwashing them and lets face it fox news has been the main vehicle for the propaganda.
We need to return to the taxes and regulations prior Reagan, but getting rid of the bush era tax cuts for the rich and large corporations, would be a start. The next important thing to do is to once more tax all earnings as ‘income’, no more lesser tax on carried interest and capitol gains. The ‘elite’ and large corporations make their wealth using our public funded infrastructure and then see no reason why they should help pay for that same infrastructure.
The main question is, how do we change the mindset of those that are still so brainwashed, that they actually believe that those poor rich just don’t deserve to pay high taxes?
