State of the Union, Cartoon by David Horsey by David Horsey
Why is it not self-evident that in order to decrease the deficit, we must increase revenue by levying taxes according to the ability to pay?
Why is it that Democrats are not saying that, loud and clear?
Why is it that Republicans are getting away with the false claim and fear tactic that "raising taxes" on them will produce the loss of more jobs? Isn't that extortion, and a blatant threat?
Plain old common sense and justice dictates that millionaires and billionaires can certainly afford to pay their fair share of taxes, which would be a hell of a lot more than they have been paying.
Come on. Let's demand fairness, and JUSTICE.
