So in a crazy counter to the other thread.
How about cutting the deficit by taxing the Poor instead of the Rich.
I mean Poor the Bottom 80% of society.
There are more poor people in the world than rich people. Why tax the rich productive high achievers who have worked hard for their success. Envious people of low education and of poor social class status are jealous of the rich.
A famous saying from US President Coolidge: “Don't expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong” Taxing the rich only results in there being more poor and less rich. In the end all you have is lots of poor just like Communist North Korea, Russia or China.
Tax the poor instead of the rich because it is a moral crime to be poor. Tax cuts for the rich and corporations and cut public services and increase sales taxes and other taxes on the Poor.
