Tax Cuts – As Explained By A Democrat

Tax Cuts – As Explained By A Democrat
If you don’t understand the Democrats’ version of tax cuts (and you are not alone), maybe this will help explain it:

50,000 people go to a baseball game, but the game was rained out.  A refund was then due

The team was about to mail refunds when the Congressional Democrats stopped them and suggested that they send out refund amounts based on the Democrat  National Committee’s interpretation of fairness.

After all, if the refunds were made based on the price each person paid for the tickets, most of the money would go to the ticket holders of the most expensive tickets. That would be unfair and unconscionable.

People in the $10 seats will get back $15, because they have less money to spend. Call it an “Earned Income Ticket Credit.” Persons “earn” it by demonstrating little ambition, few skills and poor work habits, thus keeping them at entry-level wages.

People in the $25 seats will get back $25, because that’s only fair.

People in the $50 seats will get back $1, because they already make a lot of money and don’t need a refund. After all, if they can afford a $50 ticket, then they must not be paying enough taxes.

People in the $75 luxury seats will have to pay another $50, because they have way too much to spend.

The people driving (or walking) by the stadium who couldn’t afford to watch the game will get $10 each, even though they didn’t pay anything in, because they need the most help (sometimes known as Affirmative Action!).

Now do you understand?

If not, contact Representative Nancy Pelosi, Senator Ted Kennedy or Senator Hillary Clinton for assistance.

  1. Yeah, because every person in the lower class is a lazy jerk. I understand that some people take advantage of the system, but should we punish those that truly need help? And just remember, if there was no lower or middle class, this country couldn’t survive.

  2. I had a rant ready to go, but it would probably be lost on you, so I’ll sum up my opinion with – you’re an idiot.

    As someone who is currently working their way out from under massive amounts of student loan debt because I didn’t have rich parents to pay my tuition….Yes, you’re right.. The fact that I’m not currently possessing box seats is clearly the fault of my laziness and lack of ambition.

    Or maybe you ascribe to the Republican version… if you screw up badly enough, you too can receive billions of dollars in tax payer bailout AND million dollar bonuses and redecorating funds. Because nothing says “Earned luxury” like profiting off those people with the poor work habits and little ambition that work 60 hour weeks to support their family.
