"It's time to be patriotic" and let the Democrats pour the fruits of your labor down a rathole, says the Vice Plagiarist. Funny how that patriot argument didn't carry much weight with his crowd while they were rooting for us to lose in Iraq.
"It's time to be patriotic"How is it patriotic to raise taxes for people making over $250,000. What part of that signifies patriotic? As a capitalist, free economy, higher taxes for higher tax brackets seems to be the OPPOSITE of patriotic. I can't say that I disagree that the rich should pay proportionately more than the poor, I don't think anyone disagrees with that (only to what extent), but calling it patriotic is an utterly misguided propagandist statement.
