Thread: Geithner: 'Privilege of Being an American' Is Why Rich Need Higher Taxes

  1. Default Geithner: 'Privilege of Being an American' Is Why Rich Need Higher Taxes

    And you wonder why this administration is loathed and despised by so many Americans.

    "Thatís the kind of balance you need. Why is that the case? Because if you don't try to generate more revenues through tax reform, if you don't ask, you know, the most fortunate Americans to bear a slightly larger burden of the privilege of being an American, then you have to -- the only way to achieve fiscal sustainability is through unacceptably deep cuts in benefits for middle class seniors, or unacceptably deep cuts in national security."
    --- Tim "Tax-Cheat" Geithner (Treasury Secretary)

    Geithner is full of horse crap and the fake Hobson's Choice he presents is absolute nonsense! He trots out the same tired old lie that got us to the precipice of this cliff in the first place. I'm sick of Big Government liars. Sick to death!
    Who do you call for when the government itself is the enemy of America?

    A slighly bigger burden? Has he seen the tax code? Is he aware of the total amount of the "revenue" biil the top 5% shoulder? What a jack ass

    Turbo Tax Timmy Geithner. He may not pay his fair share, but everyone else should.

    .... and asshat, I was BORN and American. Was it my son's privilege to inherit the massive debt you authoritarian statists created?
    Ineptocracy - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

    The Obama administration will go down in history as the class warfare administration. Its going to be an ugly recital in history classes all over the US in decades to come.

    So we owe the privilege of being fortunate to being American, to government handing our money out to those people who can't support themselves.

    LOL

    Man, the logic is unreasonable.

    Maybe if more people were like those "fortunate" rich people, we would have a country that would be the super power on a level nobody could comprehend.

    "We're going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share," he thunders to a crowd in Georgia. Such tax loopholes, he adds, "sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying 10 percent of his salary Ė and that's crazy."

    Preacherlike, the president draws the crowd into a call-and-response. "Do you think the millionaire ought to pay more in taxes than the bus driver," he demands, "or less?"

    Gee, it is rare you hear conservatives calling Reagan and Bush authoritarian statists.
