Lunatic Florida Rep. Alan Grayson (D-bag), before he is thankfully shown the door very soon, launched into some of his usual class-envy rhetoric using Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh as examples of how much they’d benefit from not raising their taxes (Dems like to say “I’m against extending the Bush tax cuts” because it sounds better than “I’m for raising taxes”).
From the Daily Caller:
â€œInstead of placating these people and letting them spew out onto the airwaves their lies about the Bush tax cut ever revealing the fact that they stand to gain millions, millions of dollars each year from their selfish desire to take advantage of the rest of America, letâ€™s do this,â€ said Grayson. â€œLetâ€™s take that money and create jobs.â€
Good Lord, what a pathetic creature. Not to argue with a crazy person, because nothing is more futile, but I know that Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck employ many many people (not to mention give millions to charity). They do “create jobs.” Alan Grayson’s net worth is over $30 million — how many people does he employ (and I mean in his private sector dealings, not his congressional staff that taxpayers fund)? I’m fairly certain it’s far less than either Beck or Limbaugh.
The top 5% of wage earners in the US pay almost 60% of the federal income taxes taken in by the government. That’s a fair chunk of change but not enough to satisfy Grayson.
Rest assured the multi-millionaire Grayson pays the absolute minimum he’s required to pay in taxes, Bush tax cuts included or not. If Grayson feels he’s taking advantage of America and not paying enough, he should feel free to give more money to the treasury and lead by example.
I always feel like I need a shower and comprehensive delousing after watching this greaseball, but here it is nonetheless:
