Though Democrats (and in particular, our Divider-in-Chief) love to talk about the need for the rich to “pay their fair share,” they never seem to address one of the most-unfair institutions facing Americans today: the income tax.
Though the rich and poor alike enjoy the benefits of taxpayer funds, they encounter this burden differently. The rich and poor alike enjoy the benefits of a strong military force, they both have the possibility of sending their children to “free” public schools and government accommodates both the rich and poor alike. In some instances, in fact, the poor have a better experience with taxpayer-funded goodies as the rich are forced to pay for housing, food and medical care for the poor and pay for such things for themselves.
Rather than focus on a flat-tax based on consumption (a national sales tax, for example), the only solutions to emerge from the mouths of liberals is “more taxes, more spending.”
The below video offers a simplified allegory that highlights the inherent lack of fairness to be found in our current, “progressive” income tax system.
Watch and wonder, at the end, how any logical person could defend such a system as “fair.”
