Rand Paul, the man with the dead baby squirrel on his head, is condemning Democrats for wanting to “drown the rich.”
Rand Paul (R-KY) brought the shrillness to new heights today on the Senate floor, screeching about how y’all want to punish the rich “producers” and how you’d pay for it when you ruin the economy just because you wanted to get some rich people. Paul likened raising taxes on rich people to “drowning” them (a more specific version of “death by taxes”). Yes, you are killing rich people out of pure spite.
I know this is a stupid question but I’m just full of stupid. We’ve had the lowest tax rate on the rich for 12 years now and where the hell are the jobs? Where the hell is the trickle down? These guys did not create jobs – they created Swiss bank accounts.
I do not want to drown the rich. I just want to keep them from peeing in the pool.
Thanks to Marcia for the heads up.
