On Sunday, New York Democrat Rep. Jerrold Nadler accused establishment Republicans of acting like gangsters on taxes.
“The Republican block is saying, like a bunch of gangsters, it’s a nice middle class tax cut — a pity something would happen to it,” Nadler told CBS News on Sunday. “Unless you give the millionaires and billionaires a long-term tax cut, we’re not going to permit the middle class to continue its tax cut.”
The late Leona Helmsley was spot on when she said: “We don’t pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes.” Billionaires don’t pay taxes. They hide their money in charitable and philanthropic foundations and avoid Uncle Sam.
As noted by Bloomberg News, a large percentage of the people Democrats call “ultra rich” are not rich. Most do not even approach earning a million dollars a year. Democrats believe the “ultra rich” make somewhere between $200,000 and $500,000 a year. “Only 608,000 taxpayers earn between $500,000 and $1 million a year. That leaves a grand total of 315,000 individuals or families that earn more than $1 million a year,” writes Matt Towery.
The tax class under the gun are predominately small business owners, doctors, and small retail and manufacturing entrepreneurs who collectively employ nearly half of the nation’s workforce. Democrats are determined to rob them blind with their taxation and wealth redistribution scheme.
Nadler told CBS the productive class will be looted in order to pay off an astronomical debt created by the government and owed to foreigners and offshore banksters. Nadler said “that millionaires’ and billionaires’ tax cut will cost $700 billion added to the deficit over the next ten years, which we can’t afford.”
Nadler accused Republicans of deliberately trying to blow up the national debt so they can later argue that popular entitlement programs – long a target for conservatives – need to be cut in order to prevent a fiscal catastrophe, according to Sahil Kapur, writing for Raw Story.
In order to make this argument, history needs to be sent to the trash dumpster. Republicans have accrued three times the debt of Democrats. “This demonstrates that the self-applied rubric of ‘fiscal conservative’ is not true for Republican Administration’s unless we invert the accepted meaning of these words,” writes George Giles. He provides charts showing the profligate ways of establishment Republicans who claim the Democrats are the tax and spenders.
Republicans like stealing your money as much as Democrats do. They are determined to lock your children and grand children into debt slavery for decades to come.
Republicans controlled the House from 1995 until the Democrats took over and Obama ascended to the golden teleprompter. Jacob Hornberger of the Future of Freedom Foundation asked some pertinent questions about the Republicans in 2006.
“How many departments were abolished when Republicans controlled the presidency and both houses of Congress? How many agencies? How many spending bills were vetoed? How many pork-barrel projects were jettisoned? How much was federal spending reduced?” writes Laurence M. Vance.
Establishment Republicans like to pretend they oppose Obamacare and will repeal it now that they control the House and have gained seats in the Senate. Due to the fact Americans have poor memory, they were able to use this ruse to win election victories in November.
“The fact that they didn’t repeal anything after they gained control of the Congress in the 1994 election is a long-forgotten thing to most Americans,” Vance notes. “The simple truth is that once in power Republicans not only never reverse the legislative damage done by Democrats, they add to it.”
As the historian of the shadow government, Carroll Quigley, pointed out in his tome, Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time, that the “argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps of the Right, and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy,” including the bankster scheme to imprison the American people in endless debt slavery.
Rep. Jerrold Nadler knows this – and if he doesn’t, he is a blithering idiot. Fact of the matter is that both Republicans and Democrats are hirelings for globalist gangsters. Nadler’s comment is merely more babbling nonsense and is part and parcel of a false right left paradigm designed to distract the sheeple and defuse any meaningful political activism.
