Obama Says ‘Rich’ Really WANT To Pay More In Taxes – So Let’s Make It Voluntary

Obama said one of those things that Big Brother-style totalitarian demagogues always say in his speech yesterday:

Of course, there will be those who disagree with my approach.  Some will argue we shouldn’t even consider raising taxes, even if only on the wealthiest Americans.  It’s just an article of faith for them.  I say that at a time when the tax burden on the wealthy is at its lowest level in half a century, the most fortunate among us can afford to pay a little more.  I don’t need another tax cut.  Warren Buffett doesn’t need another tax cut.  Not if we have to pay for it by making seniors pay more for Medicare.  Or by cutting kids from Head Start.  Or by taking away college scholarships that I wouldn’t be here without.  That some of you wouldn’t be here without.  And I believe that most wealthy Americans would agree with me.  They want to give back to the country that’s done so much for them.  Washington just hasn’t asked them to.

These fascist rodents are always the same.  I think of Joe Biden a few years ago:

“We want to take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people,” Biden said in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Noting that wealthier Americans would indeed pay more, Biden said: “It’s time to be patriotic … time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.”

It’s the patriotic thing to do to help your Führer make your country an even better Utopia.  Of course, you WANT to help your Führer make your country a better Utopia, he tells you.

Just try not doing what the Führer wants and see how long it takes Dear Leader to come after you.  The correct answer is “not very.”

It’s your patriotic duty to pay your “fair share” of taxes, all ye rich people.

“Patriotic doodie,” more like.

Allow me to quote from my article yesterday to point out a little itty bitty problem with that colossal load of crap:

We need to balance our insane budget deficit, Democrats say.  And it’s time the rich paid their fair share.

All the top 10% of earners paid is 73 percent of the income taxes collected by the federal government.  That’s nothing.  It’s those poor poor who suffer the most.  The bottom 50% have to pay a whole bunch of nothing.  It’s just brutal for them every April.  They want to write a check to the government, but only the rich get to do stuff like that.  And the bottom 40% are so screwed by our federal income tax system that they actually are forced to accept free money in addition to paying a whole bunch of nothing.  Unless the Associated Press is lying about it.

The bottom fifty percent aren’t paying any federal income taxes at all.  Damn traitors, every single rat bastard one of them, by Joe Biden’s view.  And then think of the stinkhole useless treasonous cockroaches who constitute the even more bottom forty percent who not only don’t pay federal income taxes, but actually get money redistributed to them from the taxes of those “patriotic” rich people who are paying their fair share and yours as well.

This wagon train full of fecal matter riding around and around in a dusty circle is like Hitler ranting that every good Nazi had a patriotic duty to go to the Russian front to fight to the death, because no “patriotic” Nazi would ever surrender.  Or that Jews really like going to Auschwitz because, after all, it’s a camp, and who doesn’t like going to camp?

You’ve got to be stark raving mad to believe idiocy like this.  Or a tyrant bureaucrat from hell, which is the same thing except it pays a lot better and provides much better benefits.

This is just another example of Obama being a cynical, manipulative liar without shame.

But let’s give Obama the benefit of the doubt.  Let’s give him a chance to demonstrate that he actually believes his own bullturd statements.  All Obama has to do, given that he believes the rich want to pay more in taxes – “want to give back to the country that’s done so much for them” – is to make paying taxes voluntary for them.

You can pay as much as you want to the government for how wonderful they’ve been to you, as a matter of fact.  It’s called a “Gift To Reduce Debt Held by the Public.”  Liberals can write the government a check for as much as they want on their tax forms.  And the fact that they DON’T pay more in taxes when they easily COULD if they really wanted to is the proof in the pudding that liberals are hypocrites.  But since Obama truly believes – because he’s not a cynical lying weasel at all – that the rich really, truly want to pay more and more and more in taxes if they’re only asked, let him make taxes voluntary for the rich.

I’m sure Republicans would agree to that.

And think of what a bonanza we’ll get.

Obama’s got poisonous fangs.  Don’t believe him when he folds them up and tells you that you really like getting screwed just before he rapes you.

Then there’s another little thing Obama said at least twice in his speech that should set your “fascist alert” antenna twitching:

Worst of all, this is a vision that says even though America can’t afford to invest in education or clean energy; even though we can’t afford to care for seniors and poor children, we can somehow afford more than $1 trillion in new tax breaks for the wealthy Think about it.

and

In December, I agreed to extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans because it was the only way I could prevent a tax hike on middle-class Americans.  But we cannot afford $1 trillion worth of tax cuts for every millionaire and billionaire in our society.  And I refuse to renew them again.

I am thinking about it, Barry Hussein.  And it seems to me as though you are telling me that you think you own all our money, and are just letting us keep as much as you can “afford” to let us keep.

Brit Hume knocked this one out of the park when Obama was demagoguing taxes last year:

But the very language used in discussing these issues tells you something as well. In Washington, letting people keep more of their own money is considered a cost. As if all the money really belongs to the government in the first place in which what you get to keep is an expenditure.

This sense of the primacy of government is reflected in the high percentage of stimulus funds used to bail out broke localities and protect the jobs of government workers. Democrats are proving once again that they are indeed the party of government.

Understand that when Obama says the kind of crap that he’s saying, it comes from a thoroughly Marxist view that you and everything you produce is in reality government property, and he can simply decide to take it as “the people” need it.

Another way to put this is to simply demand that a liberal show you the part of the Constitution that allows the government to demand that 5 percent of the population be compelled to pay for half of a massive out-of-control federal bureaucracy whether or not they like the party that’s running it or the way it’s being run, while 50 percent of the population (that tends to vote overwhelmingly for the party that is redistributing the wealth) doesn’t have to bear any costs in running that government at all.

And not caring if the rich are forced to pay even more just because you’re not rich has the stink of not caring about what happened to the Jews just because you weren’t a Jew.  Which is all the more appropriate to point out given that the Nazis confiscated the Jews’ wealth after demagoguing them, too.

Progressivism is just another dangerous radical “ism,” just like Nazism or facism or Marxism or socialism or communism.

Obama’s central premise in his incredibly demagogic speech was that, for America to be America, we need to make one group of people pay more so that another group of people can keep on avoiding responsibility.  That’s a lie.

America doesn’t need more taxes to remain America; it desperately needs less out-of-control federal spending.

The Fiscal Year 2000 federal budget was $1.9 trillion.  It was Bill Clinton’s budget.  Was America an evil place when Bill Clinton ran it, liberals?  So just why is it that Obama needs $3.8 trillion to make America a good place now?  How does trillion upon trillion upon trillions of dollars in deficit spending make America a good place?  How is it that cursing our children with staggering, back-breaking interest payments on the debt we racked up for them ends up being defined as “caring for our children’s future”?

Do you know that the interest payment alone on our debt is exected to be $800 billion a year by 2020?  That’s just over eight years away.  As you consider Obama’s speech, ask yourself if that’s showing your kids love.  I would argue that it is the most hateful and cynical thing imaginable.

Our founding fathers understood this.  That’s why Thomas Jefferson said that, “It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes.”  That’s why Benjamin Franklin – who also said “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote” – warned us that “When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.”

And, with $3.8 trillion budgets with more than forty cents of every dollar of it adding to our deficit, adding to the $200 trillion in debt that we’ve already accumulated, the end of the republic is very much at hand.

  1. Mr. Owl Says:

    You forgot to mention that nothing is stopping these rich politicians or the million/billionaires who “want to pay more taxes” from donating all the money they want to the federal government. The IRS will gladly take their money. It makes me wonder why the politicians claiming that rich people want to give up more their money (meaning democrats) aren’t donating everything they can spare. Or, hell, why not just take a pay cut since they decide how much of my tax money goes directly into their own pockets.

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    Glad you realize that liberals can pay as much in taxes as they want – and the government will take everything they are willing to give.

    But for the record, I actually DID mention that:

    But let’s give Obama the benefit of the doubt. Let’s give him a chance to demonstrate that he actually believes his own bullturd statements. All Obama has to do, given that he believes the rich want to pay more in taxes – “want to give back to the country that’s done so much for them” – is to make paying taxes voluntary for them.

    We’ve already got that, after all. It’s called a “Gift To Reduce Debt Held by the Public.” And since Obama truly believes – because he’s not a cynical lying weasel at all – that the rich really, truly want to pay more and more and more in taxes if they’re only asked, let him make taxes voluntary for the rich.

    But looking that second paragraph over, I also realize that I could have been more clear, and been more specific in stating that the rich can in fact give more money to the government.

    I’ll edit that paragraph and add a sentence to clarify.

  3. college scholarships Says:

    I honestly think that the rich want to keep their money just like everyone else.

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    I think that’s true. But it goes beyond that: does a policy of attacking producers result in more producing, or does it result in less producing? And is the gigantic liberal bureaucracy that confiscates wealth and then gets to decide how to spread it around rather than the people and the free market system more democratic and more efficient or less democratic and less efficient?

    It’s not just wrong to single out certain people and punish them and take their stuff; it’s incredibly counter-productive and undemocratic.

  5. Chuck Kuhn Says:

    Is this really about the rich wanting to keep their $$ or give more? Let’s go back to the Bush/GW era. Not one word about spending or the dollars for 2 wars. I could go on, but this is all about Republicans wanting Obama out. I say give a new Pres 8 yrs in this case to clean up GW and The GOP’s mess. The real problems is congress. Divided and lets never give any Pres, Dem or REP both houses. WE saw what Bush did for 4 yrs. Never forget

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    this is all about Republicans wanting Obama out.”

    Chuck,

    I’m sorry, but apparently you are a rabidly biased human being who is incapable of comprehending reality and therefore must exist off of leftwing talking points like a catfish feeding off the bottom of the muck in a stagnant pond.

    You see, you remember a time when Democrats rallied around Bush and worked to see him reelcted. But I happen to live in this place called “the actual world” that you have never seen. I remember things quite differently. I remember eight years of the Bush Derangement Syndrome. I remember how Democrats began demanding that Bush be impeached almost as soon as he took office in 2001. I remember Democrats such as Howard Dean (who became the DNC CHAIRMAN) and Cynthia McKinney accusing President Bush of knowing about the 9/11 attacks in advance and not doing anything. And that insane group includes more than HALF of ALL Democrats, fwiw. I remember the mainstream media coverage and the Democrat Party constantly and rabidly hyping Cindy Sheehan who was demonizing George Bush as a murdering warmonger. I remember when George Bush was trying to reform Social Security in 2005 and the Democrats attacked him with stunning viciousness. I remember when a fellow Democrat asked Rep. Nancy Pelosi when their party would offer its own Social Security plan. And Pelois’s answer was “Never. Is that soon enough for you?” I remember Democrats literally demonizing Bush for the damned weather during Hurricane Katrina, and calling him a racist who hated black people even though the Democrats at every level from the state Governor down to Mayor Ray Nagin – who let 2,000 school busses that could have saved lives get flooded – were far more to blame for the disaster than Bush was. I remember George Bush trying to get a debt ceiling increase and a Democrat Senator named Barack Hussein Obama decried it a “failure of leadership” while Senate Majority Leader Reid demanded that Republicans explain “why they think more debt is good for the economy.” I remember the Democrats when they forced Reagan to come hat-in-hand begging for a debt ceiling every five months, and laughed hysterically that Barack Obama had the balls to demand he get the most massive debt ceiling increases in history that would last past the 2012 election as if that was “reasonable.” I remember Democrats and Barack Obama demonizing George Bush over Iraq and Afghanistan. I remember Obama demonizing the surge strategy and predicting it would lead to more sectarian violence. You know, before the same Obama’s administration actually took credit for Iraq as “one of the great achievements of this administration.” I also remember Obama demonizing Bush in Afghanistan where Obama claimed Bush was just “air-raiding villages and killing people.”

    You mention the “2 wars” without mentioning that Bush WON one of them while Obama massively escalated the war and is nevertheless LOSING the other (see also here). You also forget to mention that Obama has actually gotten us into three MORE wars – with Libya (which is about to seriously melt down), Yemen and the “secret war” Obama is waging in Pakistan. Libya alone has cost America nearly a BILLION DOLLARS so far.

    Obama is on pace to send more American soldiers to their graves than Bush did during his first term. And yet somehow all the protestors who screamed at Bush are so silent I hear the crickets chirping (hypocrite alert). Obama has actually killed more civilians than Bush did, and yet see how the media protect their messiah.

    But you’ve got an idea, don’t you, Chuck. Why don’t we all blame Bush for everything.

    Democrats take credit for every single sunrise and blame Bush for every damned sunset. It’s one of the ways that they show they’re vermin.

    “Republicans want Obama out.” Cry me an ocean. Because with all due respect, if you don’t understand that Democrats wanted BUSH out, then you are a pathetically stupid idiot and I won’t even waste my time with you.

    But assuming you AREN’T a pathetically stupid idiot, you instead are a hypocrite without shame, Chuck, if you don’t mind my saying. You and your ilk unrelentingly demonized George Bush for eight crazy years. And now you’re upset that we Republicans would do unto Obama as you did unto Bush. You’d be ashamed of yourself, if you were capable of that virtue.

    You talk about “the real problem is congress.” You somehow omit to mention that Democrat had control of both the House AND the Senate for the two years prior to the 2008 collapse. You seem to omit the fact that unemployment was 4.6% when the Democrats took control of Congress before that collapse. You somehow omit that it was Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that led to and caused the rest of the housing mortgage industry to collapse in 2008 which in turn blew up our economy, and that Bush and Republicans tried SEVENTEEN TIMES to reform Fannie and Freddie but were stopped by shrill Democrat opposition.

    I recently wrote that up in an article about how the Democrats set up America for the 2008 collapse, and Barack Obama became their king.

    You utterly lack the integrity to admit that if Bush was responsible for the bad economy then simply because he was president even though Democrats controlled both the House and the Senate that OBAMA is responsible for the bad economy now when Democrats controlled the House, the Senate AND the White House for the two years since 2008 and STILL control the White House and the Senate NEARLY THREE YEARS AFTER BUSH LEFT OFFICE.

    For the record, it has now been 847 days since Democrats passed any kind of a budget whatsoever. Which is another way of saying, “Democrats are a total disgrace.” But hey, let’s blame that complete and utter failure of Democrats and ONLY Democrats on George Bush and the Tea Party that barely even existed yet when this total abdication of leadership began.

    You know what we need, Chuck, besides a lot fewer people like you? We need a president who actually says, “I am president. This is MY economy. I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS COUNTRY. AND INSTEAD OF CONSUMING ALL MY TIME TRYING TO FIGURE OUT NEW WAYS TO BLAME THE OTHER PARTY OR THE LAST PRESIDENT LIKE OBAMA HAS, I AM ACTUALLY GOING TO LEAD.”

    And one way our president could lead would be by presenting a budget that wasn’t so utterly vile and beneath contempt that not even ONE DEMOCRAT in a DEMOCRAT-CONTROLLED SENATE could vote for it, much less any Republicans. You know, the way Obama did in presenting his joke of a budget that got voted down 97-0 in a Senate controlled by his own party.

    Democrats are people who have NO budget and NO plan, but rely EXCLUSIVELY on demonization and fearmongering to seek even more big government power and tyranny. Democrats are people who scream hate about Republicans while at the same time patting themselves on the back for giving speeches about their “new tone of civility.”

    DEMOCRATS exploded the economy in 2008 by creating the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac monsters and then refusing to allow them to be regulated at a time when regulation and reform might have saved us. And they took total control of this nation and exploded our debt by so much that we’ll probably NEVER be able to crawl out as our children’s children become debt slaves paying interest payments from YOUR DAMN SPENDING.

    Never forget that.

    P.S. There’s a whole lot more to take your “this is all about Republicans wanting Obama out” and shove it right up your @$$, isn’t there? Because we don’t just have the past to look at; we’ve got yesterday and today to prove what loathsome hypocrite frauds you Democrats are.

    Hey, the Democrats were on every television program and every newspaper they could get on calling the Tea Party Republicans “terrorists.” Vice President Joe Biden was among them. “The Republicans held American hostage,” they kept saying over and over again even though it turns out that DEMOCRATS voted like “terrorists” at a higher rate than the Republican Tea Party Caucus all by itself. So, I mean, Republicans are terrorists and they’re the worst kind of people who hold America hostage, but it’s not like the Democrats who said that wanted Republicans “out,” is it???? Oh, no. I mean, that would demonstrate what utterly vile, despicable hypocrites Democrats like you would be with your two-faced double standard, wouldn’t it, Chuck???

    And then we’ve got Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters who said “the Tea Party can go straight to hell.” And that doesn’t mean that she wants them “out,” of course. Maybe she was just inviting them to her miserable district where her miserable and evil policies have created hell-like conditions??? No, that probably isn’t it, because she said in her next breath, “And I intend to help them get there.”

    Liberals like you are defined by your quinetessential moral characteristic, Chuck. You are hypocrites. If a Republican Tea Party Caucus member were to say, “The Black Congressional Caucus can go straight to hell. And I intend to help them get there,” why, there’d be calls for that Republican’s resignation and impeachment, along with a demand for the complete dissolution of the Tea Party Caucus as inherently racist. There would literally be RIOTS. Not to mention the fact that it would be “racist” to have a White Congressional Caucus out to do the same thing for the white race that black congressmen want to do specifically for the black race – and riots if one were ever started – to begin with.

    You cockroach liberals frame EVERY issue under the sun in terms of double-standard hypocrite rhetoric. You viciously attack us every single damn day while whining at the same time about Republicans not having your “civility.” You frame the heart of your message in Marxist class warfare, hatefully demonize the people who pay nearly ALL of our taxes as it is, and then demonize them as greedy if they have the balls to actually try to stand up for themselves and protect their families and try to leave what they built for their children.

    Your policies lead to poverty every single time they are tried. You claim to only want to help minimum wage workers by forcing businesses to pay them more than their labor is worth, and look what happens: teen and minimum wage-level unemployment goes through the roof! Because you’ve priced them right out of a job. And you walk away from those poor people and create hell – the hell of Maxine Waters – somewhere else. You have destroyed industry after industry with your union agenda. You’ve made American products too expensive and America uncompetitive. And then you whine like spoiled children when businesses are forced to react by moving overseas. You demand more regulations and then more regulations on top of the regulations you’ve added. And those regulations cost businesses more than $2 trillion in compliance cost. And that figure is SOARING due to ObamaCare and Dodd-Frank and EPA regulations you’re forcing through as we speak. And then you can’t understand why businesses can’t be productive even though you’re strangling them and demagoguing them.

    And all you have to offer is still MORE class warfare, and MORE demonization – all the while shrilly and hysterically crying that “this is all about Republicans wanting Obama out.”

    Man do people like you ever disgust me.
