Majority Doesn't "Have A Right To Steal My Money

Postby sbayhills » Mon Dec 10, 2012 7:34 am

Peter Schiff: Majority Doesn't "Have A Right To Steal My Money Just Because They Voted For It"

CNBC's Eamon Javers reports the latest developments on "fiscal cliff" talks in Washington, and debating the financial benefits of raising taxes on the wealthy, with Peter Schiff, Euro Pacific Capital CEO, and Richard Brodsky, Demos senior fellow.

PETER SCHIFF: First of all, I'm in the top two percent. Right now, I'm paying 45% of my total income in income taxes, both to the state of Connecticut and to the federal government, and if you take the 3% Medicare tax. After the tax hikes go into effect next year, more than half -- more than half of my total income is going to go to the government. You tell me, what's fair about that when medieval serfs pay 25%, I'm paying half? I don't care what the majority voted to do, they don't have a right to steal my money just because they vote for it.

###

SCHIFF: You know what the wealthy are going to do? They're going to invest more abroad, they're not going to work as hard, they're not going to pay as much in taxes, they're not going to employ as many people. They're employees are going to pay all the taxes.

Is this some sort of "eureka" message from which we are supposed to glean truth, sbh?

Clearly Mr. Schiff has never read the Constitution

Specifically Article I, Section 8:

The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States...


It's a fascinating document. Truly one of the great pieces of writing that addresses governance.

You should read it.

He claims the wealthy are going to invest abroad. Fun stuff, wait till they get hit with the taxes in those countries.

First they drove the businesses overseas, now the capitalists, gonna be hard to balance the budget with only government employees and welfare recipients to tax.
When the government finds out that they won't collect anywhere near what they expected from the 2% "rich", they are gonna start looking real hard at the next group- down, the moderately well off, those earning over $75K.

Sure a lot of whining considering they're only talking about ending a temporary tax cut.

So Obama keeps his promise not to raise taxes on the middle class, he just eliminates the "tax cut".. :mex:
Charles Kadlec: Tax hikes on rich also hurt the 98%

People generally don't mind paying a fair price for goods and/or services.. But when we are paying for a Cadillac and getting a Yugo while watching the 47%ers driving off with Navigators, tempers do start to flare.

No kidding. Yet they idolize nations with much higher taxation.

Well, I've asked for examples of fees, penalties, and laws several times in the past with no results, so I won't go there. However, just note that Republicans had control of the Senate from 1995-2009 and the House all but four of the last 18 years. They also had the Presidency for eight of those years, of which the House and Senate were both Republican-controlled for all of them (with the exception of the House from 2007-2009).

You must have missed who was in control of congress from 1994 to 2006. Then the House from 2010 till now.

Then remind us who was in control of the senate from 1994 to 2006. And who was president from Jan. 2001 to Jan. 2009.

Your statement shows the typical disconnect from reality.

Who are these parasites? Military pensioners? Social Security and Medicare recipients?

Please be more specific than your usual fact free hyperbole.

The GOP wants the president to negotiate against himself. Obama isn't doing that because he knows he is holding all the cards.

It's going to be fun watching the GOP get blamed for raising taxes on the middle class to protect the top 2%. Given Boehner's speech on the House floor this morning, one can sense the desperation in his tone as the clock ticks down.
