WASHINGTON – Joe Biden wrapped Old Glory around Barack Obama‘s plan to raise taxes on wealthy Americans, saying the rich should be “patriotic” and fork over more cash.
Contrary to Mr Biden’s beliefs it runs contrary to the founding fathers beliefs. Many like Thomas Jefferson were wealthy and risked all to partake in the Revolution. As a matter of fact Jefferson repealed most of the federal taxes imposed by his predecessors. In spite of the fact that he started out wealthy he died broke. The Tea tax was a major contention of the founding fathers, and that was a mere 3%, now compared to the tobacco tax or the proposed carbon tax that is a drop in the bucket.
