Holy muthafuggin bajeezus, when I wrote this, it was only to use hyperbole to express how utterly ridiculous the idea is, and how utterly appalingly stupid it should sound to each and every even remotely rational soul capable of even the most rudimentary cognition.
It honestly never even occurred to me that the dumbass would actually TRY it.
How, honestly, in the name of all that is round and fulsome, do you NOT understand the devastating impact of imposing over a TRLLION dollars of new taxes on an already struggling working class?
At the SAME TIME that you are implementing policies which are driving employers to cut hours and drop benefits in order to stay in business? Oh, and your energy policies are sending the price of once-abundant electricity through the roof, and oh-by-the-way, gas is approaching $5 a gallon in many places?
Quick Review, here: A trillion is 1,000 billions. Or, 1,000,000 millions. The entire US population is hovering around a paltry 314 MILLION. Not wage earners, mind you, but every mouth-breathing consumer of all types from infants to old farts in nursing homes.
How. In. The. HELL do you expect to squeeze over a million million dollars out of 314 million people?
Oh, sorry, wait. What I meant to say was…over a million million MORE dollars than they are ALREADY PAYING?
So, let’s make everything cost more, while simultaneously taking away at least $2-3000 a year from the average family, all the while trumpeting how awesome your fiscal policy is, and oh my, isn’t is great how we kept those evil Tea-Partiers from getting into office?
