Remember 17-year-old Tyler Hinsley who at the CNN/Tea Party debate asked: of every dollar I earn, how much do I deserve to keep? Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky’s (D-IL) had an answer to that question when pushed, and as usual it was a dishonest and condescending answer:
…you don’t deserve to keep all of it. ~ Jan Schakowsky
There was no suggestion, either from Tyler Hinsley or from whomever is interviewing Schakowsky in the video below, that we should not pay taxes.
She pays 35%, she says, and would be happy to pay more, but doesn’t. Her plan: if you make $1Million you should pay 45%. If you make more than $1M you should pay 49%. Read the Tyler Hinsley story here. Thanks to Arlen Williams at Gulag Bound.
