‘Hell Yeah!’ Republican Senator Doubles
Down on Pledge to Raise Taxes on Most
Americans, Says People ‘Want Free Government Stuff’

Original Article

Posted By: Hermoine, 3/8/2022 7:39:31 AM

Republican Senator Rick Scott of Florida, who chairs the National Republican Senatorial Committee, doubled down on his pledge to raise most Americans’ taxes if the GOP retakes the Senate in this year’s midterms.(snip) “Here’s what’s not fair,” he said. “We have hard-working Americans – they’re paying all these taxes, and retirees pay them. Who’s not? We’ve got some billionaires not paying it, and we got people that want free government stuff and they don’t want to have any skin in the game. That’s not fair.”


I didn't see the interview but the Mediaite article about it appears to be very twisted and misleading. I happen to agree with Sen. Scott -- we, in the middle, have been stuck with the tax bill for far too long -- everyone needs to have skin in the game from the lower economic class all the way up to the billionaires.

Rick Scott should know by now that Congress is not going to tax the rich because they are the rich and they aren't going to tax themselves. We don't need more taxes we need more people working and we need to jerk a knot in healthy people who refuse to work and are receiving Government entitlements. Of course Congress is not going to do that either because the people getting entitlements vote.

"Free Government Stuff" is where the big lie comes in. The government doesn't own anything, they are simply the crooked middleman between productive citizens and lazy, obese parasites. The voting law that would transcend them all would be that you must earn money by some means in order to vote until you reach age 65, That would stop most of the corruption.

the only "fair" method of taxation is a national sales and property tax with exemptions for necessities. trouble is always who detetmines what is a necessity. Income taxes take immediately needed money away from low income workers only to be refunded later. In the mean many need assistance in order to survive and the transfer to and from government coffers has costs.

If voting was limited to those who actually pay income taxes, we'd likely have a different country.

There's a trap here. The top 1% make 20% of the income and pay 40% of the taxes. The top 10% pay 80% of the taxes. Clearly the rich pay a crapload of the taxes. So who are these billionaires who pay "no" taxes? And if they exist that means subset of the 1% are the only contributors to the 40% which makes their burden even greater. Guess who's going to get hammered if we try to squeeze more out of the 1% the 10%, those who have sweet deals to avoid taxes now, or that subset of the upper echelon who already pay that 40% and those paying the 80%? We all do what we do because we are better off at the end of the day for doing it and people accept our services because they are better off for trading with us. Taxes don't change that assessment of "better off" that consummates the deal at both ends of the transaction. If suddenly the people hired by the 1% had to pay 15% in taxes Mr. 1% would have to pay them more in wages to achieve the same balance of better off in the economic environment of supply and demand risk and reward. But alas Mr. 1% would be paying less taxes with a flat or flatter tax system so what he would have paid in taxes he pays as income so his workers pay the taxes. By depriving the bottom 50% of skin in the game they will support higher taxes on the rich without realizing that directly impacts what their employers will pay them to end up better off for having hired them. The overall tax burden finds its way into everybody's pocket but the tax structure is designed by government to deceive and to increase the demand for more government.

When you start with the false premise that everyone "owes" the government something, everything that follows is also false. You will never hear a politician say that citizens should pay less or that the government should use less. There will only and always be a "villain of the moment" who doesn't "pay his fair share".

Many moons ago on an April Fool's Day, Rush did a bit on taxing the poor. He made a serious talk on this. Of course, it was his April Fool's joke. But I thought to myself, Rush is onto something. He may have been joking, but he was right, as usual. Rick Scott is onto something. I whole heartedly agree with him, but wait until Republicans regain control. Back off for now. Unfortunately, the cat is out of the bag. Let the voters decide.

The only "fair" taxation is voluntary. Anything else is theft. I am personally aware of massive wastes of money that would make a normal person cringe. If taxes were voluntary, people just would refuse to pay for such foolishness. The bureaucrats would have to wisely prioritize and cut out the waste or people wouldn't pay them. Many government functions would close down. Not a single tear would be shed.

I don't trust anything our politicians or our media say. Is Scott lying? Is mediate lying? Probably yes to both. Everyone is already paying more in taxes. It's called inflation. Prices go up, revenue from sales taxes increase. That's how Biden, the Democrats, and the Republicans are paying for everything. The government is 30 trillion in debt, btw. None of this will change unless government cuts spending, and that's not going to happen. Actually, the exact opposite will happen, government will continue to increase spending. We could create new businesses and expand businesses. Create new jobs. We could bring back jobs and businesses from overseas. it will increase the tax base, and tax revenue. It won't matter though. Spending is out of control. Our government needs more revenue, and they will get it through any means necessary. They will still use inflation to increase revenue. Eventually the system will implode under its weight taking all of us along with it.

#17 -- I am the original poster and my point in posting it was to show how twisted the headline was versus what Scott actually said. I know Mediate is playing the propaganda game. I agree with Scott that there waaaaay to many people not paying anything, yet these are the same people "receiving" or "using" the majority of the services provided by those who do pay taxes. And, what's not being used by those people is being handed out or squandered by Democrat "friends and family."

Why when politicians talk about raising taxes, they never talk about cutting corrupt money being spent with our tax dollars? Why do they never talk about kick backs to liberal groups (usually) in these $$$$ trillion dollar infrastructure bills that are passed? Obama perfected that with his "shovel ready" jobs that weren't shovel ready and these $$$$$ went to Obama's favorite liberal groups that would launder the money back to his campaign! Remember Solendra and the "Green Jobs" that weren't? Billions of dollars $$$$ wasted!!! Sickening. We would never have to raise taxes and we could even lower the national debt, if politicians on both sides would cut the spending corruption. What they are doing is evil.

For many conservatives, if you have gotten on the wrong side of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) you must be doing something right. For example, Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) irked McConnell in a big way after releasing his “11-Point Plan to Rescue America: What Americans Must Do to Save this Country.” Never heard of it? That would not be surprising, since many mainstream media outlets ignored it. But I can assure you that Scott’s ideas are spreading among conservatives like wildfire. Within a week, five of my conservative friends had emailed it to me, and I’m sure that’s happening with others as well.
