Since when have paying taxes been considered charity? Biden tries to pass off big government as Patriotism. Unbelievable. Welcome to Patriotism, Democrat style … wearing a flag pin not patriotic while paying higher taxes is patriotic. Welcome to a glimpse of what it will be like in an Obama Administration.
What else would a tax and spend liberal say? According to Democrat VP candidate Joe Biden, “paying higher taxes is a patriotic act”. Biden discussing raising taxes while his Presidential running mate is stating that he will not be raising taxes on Americans. This coming from the Democratic Party and ticket that has previously stated that we are not supposed to question people’s patriotism. These are the same people that said that wearing a flag pin was not a true sign of patriotism, yet some how paying higher taxes is. AMAZING!!! So I guess Biden’s philosophy is that those that pay low taxes would be unpatriotic? Wouldn’t that be the middle class then?
Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden said Thursday that paying more in taxes is the patriotic thing to do for wealthier Americans. In a new TV ad that repeats widely debunked claims about the Democratic tax plan, the Republican campaign calls Obama’s tax increases “painful.”
Noting that wealthier Americans would indeed pay more, Biden said: “It’s time to be patriotic … time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.”
So let’s get this straight, Joe Biden has given in charity an average of $369 a year for the past decade or about .02% of his income while he tells Americans they need to pay more taxes or they are not Patriots?
