WHOSE MONEY IS IT?
Before everyone on the left spontaneously explodes into flames before a CNN camera… let’s discuss reality. A “TAX” takes money from the person who OWNS the money. So what these people are screaming about is that a law was passed saying the federal government will not TAKE AS MUCH AWAY from you when you make it.
Is that really GIVING you money?
HOW TAX CUTS WORK
To put it in real world terms… imagine, after a week of work you cashed a paycheck. You and your wife walk home via a dark alley lined with sleeping men with hands folded over paper bags covering bottles of Jack Daniels whiskey or Boone’s Farm wine.
From the shadows emerges a guy in a nice suit, who sticks a gun to your ribs and demands your money, your watch, and your wedding ring.
You comply, but as you hand him the wedding ring he relents, and in a moment of uncharacteristic largesse, allows you to keep it. You smile at his kindness. He begins handing your money to the guys sleeping in the alley.
Suddenly, from out of nowhere emerges Chuck Schumer… screaming to a camera that the guy in the suit didn’t “give” rings to anyone ELSE in the alley.
Joining him, Nancy Pelosi demands to know how the guy in the suit intends to pay for the LOSS of the wedding ring.
She points out that given their joint monthly expenditures on crack and prostitutes he can’t possibly afford such generous measures. “How in the hell will you pay for our crack if you run around giving away wedding rings!?”
Next, all the guys that’d been sleeping in the alley pull out the latest iPhone to share pictures of you on social media.
They complain that you were GIVEN a ring by the guy in the suit, but they were not. They discuss how unfair it is, wryly note that your paycheck just doesn’t seen to go as far these days, and gripe about the inadequate recognition of alley-sleepers in general.
They then make plans get together next week after the Superbowl party and protest.
