Americans are closely divided over the economic impact of raising taxes on those who make more than $100,000 per year.
Thirty-five percent (35%) say it would be good for the economy, 37% say it would be bad, and 17% say it would have no impact, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
A plurality of Democrats (48%) say raising taxes on those who make over $100,000 each year would be good for the economy, while 59% of Republicans take the opposite view. Adults not affiliated with either party are evenly divided.
DOES NO ONE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS?!?!? Why is 35% of these pollers OK with the salary cap being lowered on raised taxes? That would be yet ANOTHER lie that our President has told us. What planet are these people living on? Or...are these the people that reap the benefits and do nothing to deserve them?
So, the message you are essentially sending your young Americans (that are naive enough to BELIEVE the MSM) is...don't work to make something of yourself. Maintain a small salary (otherwise, we'll tax the hell out of you)...let those "rich" folks pay in the most and you'll be off scot-free for your lifetime.
Why has no one asked...what happens when we run out of people that make $100K? Will it then go down to $75K? $65K? When is it going to stop? It will NOT be good for the economy to raise taxes on those that make $100K. Because those people (that SPEND money, that HELP the economy)...if you keep taking money away from them through taxes, well, they'll have to cut costs somewhere. That somewhere is going to be on the items that they don't really need...but that help this economy going.
Where has the common sense gone?
