Reason.TV has a response for Hillary Clinton.
Many moderate voters, myself included, did not realize that Hillary Clinton was a stealth progressive until a few months before the presidential election. At least now, unless you still have the democrat kool-aid IV in, most know an Alinsky acolyte when they see one.
(It always amazes me that the progressives will make statements to like minded individuals that are so clearly in direct conflict with the Constitution even though they know cameras are rolling. Remember Barry speaking to fellow socialists in San Fran about energy costs necessarily rising?)
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a rare foray into domestic politics today, offering her view that — given America’s high unemployment — wealthy Americans don’t pay enough taxes.
“The rich are not paying their fair share in any nation that is facing the kind of employment issues [America currently does] — whether it’s individual, corporate or whatever [form of] taxation forms,” Clinton told an audience at the Brookings Institution, where she was discussing the Administration’s new National Security Strategy.
Clinton said the comment was her personal opinion alone. “I’m not speaking for the administration, so I’ll preface that with a very clear caveat,” she said.
Clinton went on to cite Brazil as a model.
“Brazil has the highest tax-to-GDP rate in the Western Hemisphere and guess what — they’re growing like crazy,” Clinton said. “And the rich are getting richer, but they’re pulling people out of poverty.”
I have a sneaking suspicion that there is more to the equation than high taxes equals wealth. Personally, I sticking with the Laffer Curve, and the Constitution that states that the government is not allowed to tax labor.
For those that still don’t know about Hillary Clinton, go here.
