Parasitic Americans

Today on Amanda Carpenter quoted Hillary Clinton's debate point about tax raising,

When asked if she believed Americans were paying enough taxes, Clinton praised billionaire U.S. investor Warren Buffett because, as she said, “He’s honest enough to say, look, tax me because I’m a patriotic American.”

She went on, “We have to change the tax system and we’ve got to get back to having those with the most contribute to this country.”

"I’m making $80 million a year, God must have intended me to have a lower tax rate."

Buffett said: “The 400 of us [here] pay a lower part of our income in taxes than our receptionists do, or our cleaning ladies, for that matter. If you’re in the luckiest 1 per cent of humanity, you owe it to the rest of humanity to think about the other 99 percent.”

Of course, we all know the results of this type of steeply progressive tax schemes; people cant rise by their own efforts so they decide to take it easy; people with money to invest either go offshore or spend their capital; no jobs are created, many are lost and the ranks of the 'deserving poor', those wonderful paragons that all our efforts should be going to help, swell enormously. The Already Rich and the Politically Powerful become a permanent class whose ranks can only be entered by birth or extreme political effort. Innovation and creativity cease. Birthrates crash.The dull, dreary industrial feudalism descends on 'the other 99 percent.

Here are the comments I posted on Townhall:

Amanda- You Heard Wrong

Hillary didnt say "patriotic" she said "parasitic', as did that well-known parasite Warren Buffet. Get some Q-Tips and clean the Right Wing Wax out of your ears, girl! Even her husband wasn't dumb enough to raise capital gains tax rates, although he tried to raise every other tax rate. But Madam is ready to go the Whole Hog and reduce this once-great country to a burned-out husk of a Euro-Trash Social Democracy, where only the Parasitic Americans (people who ALREADY have money and their political cronies) will preside over depression-level unemployment rates and zero growth. Warren's servants and their children will have no other option than a lifetime of devoted service to their loving and patronizing parasite. See you on the welfare line.
