If ever there was a political party that deserved to lose an election, it was the brain dead GOP of 2012. The party that thinks the fact that 47% of the public pays no income taxes means that 47% of the public pays no income taxes EVER. (Do these people not have 19 year olds in college, or 75 year old parents on Social Security?)
Now the brain dead GOP has shown its skill at high stakes poker by countering Obama’s offer of a 39.6% high rate, with a counter-offer of 41.0%. Let’s put aside the fact that the brain dead GOP doesn’t even seem to know that Obama’s actually proposing a 43.4% top rate, which means the brain dead GOP counter is 44.8%, or 53% in Sweden err California.
The brain dead GOP CLAIMS to favor a flat tax. A simple tax system with no loopholes and lower rates. So why aren’t they proposing a $50,000 cap on deductions? I think you know the answer. The GOP isn’t just brain dead, it’s also corrupt.
The brain dead and corrupt GOP also claims to be the party of family values. So have you seen any proposals to eliminate the marriage penalty? Neither have I.
