Dems Heart Taxes

They do, they really, really do!

(Washington Post) A clear majority of Americans have an unfavorable view of the federal income tax system, according to new Washington Post-ABC News polling. But, in a somewhat remarkable finding, a majority of Democrats view the tax system in a positive light while Republicans and Independents carry the exact opposite view.

I’m not sure why that is remarkable. Democrats love taxes. What’s missing, though, is that Democrats love taxes on Other People.

Fifty-three percent of self-identified Democrats in the Post-ABC survey view the income tax system favorably while 43 percent see it unfavorably. That’s a stark contrast to the 66 percent of Republicans and 62 percent of independents who have an unfavorable opinion of the tax system.

The WP’s Chris Cillizza and Sean Sullivan attempt to explain this

Part of the answer may well be that Democrats are broadly supportive of the idea that government can and should collect taxes in order to provide services for the American public while Republicans and independents are more skeptical about giving money to the federal government to spend.

Let’s fix that, shall we?

Part of the answer may well be that Democrats are broadly supportive of the idea that government can and should collect taxes in order to provide free services and free stuff for themselves paid for by Other People while Republicans and independents are more skeptical about giving money to the federal government to spend on bullshit programs like shrimp on a treadmill, Florida beauty school tuition, road signs touting stimulus funds at work, turtle tunnels, Solyndra, and others to the tune of boatloads of money.

If Democrats like the tax system and the way the money, forcibly taken by the government, so much, they should be willing to send more of their own money to the IRS. At all income levels, Democrats won’t. It’s always about Someone Else having their taxes increased.

    Teach believes that the 1% should continue to be the only group that does well economically.

    And john believes no group should do well economically. That way everyone can be dependent on the government.

  3. John doesn’t seem to understand that without the 1% progressives would have to steal from each other….hey, weird, that happens a lot in deep Blue cities as people with money have amscrayed for Redder pastures.

    I await John denouncing Obama as an evil 1%er who refuses to pay his fair share as he lives off the teet of the taxpayer. Think John will do it, GC?

    Democrats believe that someone else should pay higher taxes for crap like remodeling mosques in countries that hate us, promoting programs that curtail religious freedom and expression here in America, pay for homes and power in terrorist countries like GAZA instead of here at home, for funding programs like condom application for adults while also funding abortion programs, paying for million dollar gardens in foreign embassies, while allowing our own citizens to die without cause and without redress.
