It's typical Democratic thinking that the Government can tax Big Money and Big Corporations and the Rich people that own those corporations. Any
person with a "lick of sense" as my granny used to say, knows they just pass on the higher taxes to us. All those rich people own corporations and
they just increase the price of their goods to make up for the Governments tax hikes.
Part of me agree's with you semper, about "passing the buck" so to speak.
However, the part i have to disagree with is this:
The businesses wont raise their prices beyond what the customer can/will pay for. Same thing applies to gas prices, which is why "6 dollar a
gallon" gas would happen for about a day, and go back down.
If i may offer my observations for a moment, on the "democrat/republican" spending scale, it seems to go like this:
Democrats tax tax tax, save save save (in comparison to republicans)
Republicans spend spend spend spend spend.
So it seems as though neither one can support without the other. A sort of "political ecosystem" if you will.
For me, i have watched my 401k investments, and my small stock portfolio dwindle these past few years, but, the only spending i see is from
republicans....so i gota ask, what are the democrats doing that is making things 'bad'?
