No, just take from anyone earning a salary, and give all to the government:
Walloping the Middle Class
The Democrats’ tax punt may mean that a family of four with an income of $45,000 will pay $2,083 more in taxes.
The Tax Foundation has run the numbers and the tax hikes coming down the road are eye-popping. Take a school teacher married to a bus driver, with a combined income $120,000 and two kids. Only Nancy Pelosi would consider them “rich,” but their income taxes will go up $4,499 next year, even before any potential AMT penalty, which could add several thousand dollars to their tax bill.
A family of four with an income of $45,000 would pay $2,083 more in taxes. Ouch. And that hard-working single mom, who Mr. Obama talks all the time? If she makes $40,000 a year, she will pay the IRS $1,607 a year more.
The recession? Don’t worry about the recession: the recession will deepen.
