Many in Congress have attempted to make earning an income distasteful, so those pitiable enough to earn an income are subjected to public scorn. Politicians and many in the media are collectively pushing policies to "punish those people" by taxing them into economic slavery and involuntary servitude.
The scheme perpetuated by those demanding higher taxes goes something like this:
- The wealth gap has widened since the "Bush" tax credits.
- So raise the taxes on the wealthiest in the nation.
- The higher taxes will pay down the nation's deficit.
- Money can then be redistributed to those in need.
These reasons are pure fiction!
