Michele Bachmann declares she’s for increasing taxes on the wealthy. Well not exactly, there’s just one little snag…
Nice Michele, problem is you have no intention of increasing taxes on the wealthy. However it must be wonderfully convenient to not have to actually concern yourself with the facts or be accountable for anything you say. What forgiving i.e. moronic devotees you must have? I’ll bet you could tell them the sky was falling and just so long as you either blamed a liberal, or credited a conservative they would applaud approvingly. Yep it would look like a roomful of giant wiggling head dolls; the aggregate IQ’s would be the same too.
Bachmann; “For my tax plan, I take a page out of one of my great economists that I admire, Ronald Reagan,” Bachmann boasted. “And under my tax plan I want to adopt the Reagan tax plan. It brought the economic miracle of the 1980s. Why not go with what works? I want to reinstitute the Reagan tax model from the 1980s.”
Only glitch – Taxes were actually higher under President Reagan, particularly higher for the wealthy.
Oh but just look at that syntax, that sentence construction, the sublime use of past participles, the perfect passive of deponent’s and the complex modifications of both the continuous and progressive aspects of the tense forms. It makes me think; Shakespeare, Whitman, Thoreau, Mickey Mouse, Goofy, and Donald Duck. Really…..
