Like most democrats, I think Barack Obama misses the point on taxes. First of all, democrats should never utter the word “raising taxes.” Holy “fuck yourself over” Batman. When people hear the word “raise taxes” they immediately go fuck that. ESPECIALLY when it comes from a democrat.
But more importantly, the issue isn’t raising taxes versus cutting taxes, the issue is making sure every American pays their fair share and shifting the burden off the backs of the middle class.
Obama needs to talk more, ie only, about closing loopholes to companies and certain wealthy individuals who don’t pay anything in taxes, hide their assests in offshore accounts, or move their businesses overseas.
Say it with me: “PARIS HILTON DOESN’T NEED A TAX CUT”
