Since Biden wants your patriotic wallet, the McCain campaign is poking fun at the absurd idea:
Ed points out that
The media pushback has always been disingenuous anyway. They point to Obama’s tax plan on income tax only, without mentioning the hikes on capital-gains rates and corporate taxes that Obama plans. They never mention that 70% of the country is in the investor class now and will run afoul of the new capital-gains tax rates, or that higher corporate taxes mean higher prices — and more companies relocating outside the US. Does Obama think that businesses just eat costs? Either prices go up or jobs get cut, the same as they do when Congress arbitrarily raises labor costs by increasing the minimum wage.
Not that Biden bothers with any such facts. Yesterday he was saying that paying taxes is a religous experience to a Catholic.
Here in NJ we must be in full spiritual ecstasy by now, if one’s to believe Joe.
I wouldn’t be unkind enough to say that
I’m really beginning to believe that Joe Biden got his Catholic instruction from Father Guido Sarducci and Sister Mary Elephant
because I wouldn’t want to offend Father Guido or Sister Mary for all the enjoyment they have brought me. But I do hope Biden keeps making these asinine statements for the rest of the campaign.
