Re: Michael Burgess Misleads Constituents at Taxpayer Exp...

Is this pandering to constituents? Surely. Do all politicians do it? Absolutely. It does not excuse it, but the inference (at least the one I got) is that this tactic is somehow uniquely Republican. Before I start, let me say at this point I do not fall into the ‘greater than $250k’ bucket currently…

There also seems to be more of a “stick it to ‘em – they deserve it those greedy so-and-sos” feel from many of the supporters of the tax increase. That’s a terrible reason for anything. This is followed closely by “if we don’t tax ‘em more the nation will go bankrupt”. Is putting the burden of a nation on the backs of a small percentage of Americans fair? Then, finally, I hear on rare occasions the only argument attempted to be rooted in reason– “the more money you make the more government resources you use”. Not sure I buy into this, but let’s pretend I do. Does this mean that people who don’t pay income taxes use no government resources? If the logic is sound then let’s apply it universally to all income brackets.
