Blame the rich, they’re responsible for everything wrong anyway right. That’s the media’s message. Meanwhile the politician’s sing, “Make them pay.” Here’s a few examples
Those evil rich people just have too much money, we need to tax them more and more. Nevermind that the current administration is intentionally throwing money away in the name of the Cloward-Piven Strategy. If you don’t accept the Cloward-Piven strategy you surely see that the Obama Administration has nearly tripled the National Deficit and plans on running deficits for years with no slow down to spending in sight. The media has put the blame for almost everything on rich people.
The Politicians are moving in to capitalize on this blame by letting the Bush Tax Cuts expire, reinstating the Estate (Death) Tax, as well as Cap & Trade and a VAT still lurking around the corner, and the HealthCare taxes coming online. The top 1% of income earners already pay 40% of all taxes within the United States.
This is nothing more than Redistribution of Wealth through taxation. Forcing the rich to pay for continued Government Spending.
Here’s CNN in 2009 on the HealthCare Taxes debate
And Laura Ingraham sitting in for Bill O’reilly hosts a debate between Mark Levine & Stuart Varney.
In Obama’s quest to bankrupt America, he has to also bankrupt the rich. The media has helped paint a target on the wealthy and the politicians are moving to exploit it. Economics 101 tells if you take more money from the people who create jobs, you will have fewer jobs. There will be layoffs if the Bush tax cuts expire. Obama knows this, and will use it too. The rich will be villianized and blamed for these layoffs and forced to pay even more, all the while the real villian was the Obama Administration.
Our politicians have become Michael Moore, the Communist.
