Waaahhh, I only have 400 thousand dollars left over after feeding my family! Is what Tea Party congressman John Fleming’s cried on Jansing & Co. this morning about Obama’s plan to tax the wealthy as much as the middle class. Can this idiot be for real?
We have people and a lot of them in this country as well as in the Tea Party who have to “get along” with more like 40 thousand dollars or less a year and he is crying over 400 thousand. That just pisses me off to the core. This is the selfish bullshit that we are dealing with in some of the worst economic times ever.
Not only is this Tea Party sucker bitching and moaning about paying more taxes, but he and his cohorts are also saying that we need to cut spending on programs for the poor as well as “raise” taxes on those same poor folks. Because lord knows those poor suckers who after feeding their families are left with a good 200 dollars for the year as income should be forking out at least a hundred and fifty of that to pay down the deficit consisting mainly of tax cuts for John Fleming and those like his selfish ass.
Poor John Fleming sitting there in his million dollars or better home with his family just trying to survive and here we are trying to create class warfare with his kind by taking more of those 400 thousand dollar crumbs of his is after his businesses brought in 6.3 million dollars for the year. I guess when he said 400 thousand; he totally forgot the 173 thousand a year he also gets by being a congressman. But, why split hairs, we know he is just on the cusp of the poor house; and with that kind of money coming in every year, who can remember it all.
The class warfare is that the Republican and Tea Party believes that not only do the rich need to pay less into the society that is putting the money in their pockets, but somehow the poor should be paying more to ensure that they have the means to pay less. How sick is that? This has been a long time coming and people better start looking at the writing on the wall before it’s too late.
Even Jansing told the idiot that he position to the majority of America isn’t very sympathetic. He could care less because his answer was the “class warfare never created one job.” But, you know what Mr. Fleming, a tax cut for a selfish wealthy bastard never created one job either. In fact the years that we had all these tax cuts for the rich, the only thing that happened was that we started losing jobs faster than ever.
Because what Fleming doesn’t understand is that he has the whole economic structure backwards. He believes that those at the top or company owners create jobs when in fact it is those at the bottom who create jobs. It probably sounds nuts but hear me out. If I open a lemonade stand, I have to have a demand for my lemonade from the thirsty people looking for a good deal on a cold drink on a hot day.
Neither Mr. Fleming nor his cohorts are cruising the streets looking for lemonade as these people only make up one percent of the population anyway. It is the hard working people that are my customers. And any kid with a paper route, lemonade stand or girl scout selling cookies understands that you aren’t going to do any business if you have no customers or your customers have no money to spend.
Mr. Flemings owns a lot of Subway sandwich shops and he isn’t going to tell me that somehow if he has lower taxes and the poor have higher taxes he is going to do some brisk business. In fact we all know that he will do very poorly. If the people have no money or less money frivolous spending at sub shops will decline. Those moneyless people will be better off buying a loaf of bread and a package of baloney at the super market for the price of one sub sandwich. So, who is fooling who here?
But, you see it doesn’t just stop there. He and his cohorts want to cut all government programs so that those poor folks won’t even get food stamps to buy their bread and baloney. But, unfortunately for Mr. Fleming, they won’t have money for food, but they damn sure won’t have money for his stupid submarine sandwich.
I guess we’ll see his stupid face in the soup kitchen line right along with the rest of us. You can’t build a business with moneyless customers. And if your customers have no money, you my friend will eventually have no money either.
M O R O N – that spells Tea Party, lawds yes.
