Eric Cantor spoke at a Politico breakfast on April 19 and gave his answer to the budget deficit created by two wars that weren’t paid for and by the Bush tax cuts. His solution: tax poor working Americans, the 45% who don’t make enough money to pay federal income taxes. (They do, by the way, pay taxes. It is a GOP lie that they don’t. They pay Social Security taxes, state income taxes, property taxes – if they can afford a house – sales taxes, gasoline taxes, etc.)
Just when I think bunch of Republicans running the House can’t get much worse, Cantor proves me wrong every time.
