How dumb does the President and his speechwriters think we are? He claims that he will pay for $4 trillion in new spending by taxing corporations and those with incomes over $400,000.
Who is he trying to kid? Those are the people who can afford the lobbyists who write the bills for the legislators to sign. Those are the people who fund the campaigns of the legislators who will vote on it. Are those legislators really going to vote for legislation that will harm the goose that is laying their golden eggs?
What will happen when they find they can’t raise enough from the rich? Don’t be surprised if you feel the government’s hand going deeper in your pocket.
