‘Non-Partisan’ Group of Democrat Stooges Endorsed by Robert Reich Demands to Be Taxed More

It’s usually a dead giveaway when they call themselves non-partisan, and they’ve created a massive groundswell with 22 people having signed their petition. Yet despite the obvious lack of a following, they’re still provided glowing coverage by the San Francisco Chronicle.

They’re rich. They’re angry. And they want to pony up more money to Uncle Sam.

Armed with placards reading “Please Raise Our Taxes” and colorful budget charts, about 75 well-dressed middle-aged folks assembled on the steps of San Francisco City Hall at noon on Tuesday – tax day.

“Like millions of Americans, today was not fun – it was more like a root canal,” said real estate developer John Stewart, addressing Tax-Us (www.tax-us.info), the “affluent minority” group he founded that was launching with the City Hall rally. “But I was the beneficiary of Bush-era tax cuts that put more bucks in my pocket.

Those cuts for wealthy people caused today’s deficit, he said. That’s why his group, which self-identifies as “5 percenters, not 1 percenters,” seeks tax increases for themselves and other top earners.

Um, no, it was out-of-control spending, especially when you consider those evil Bush tax cuts increased revenue. But they never tell you that part. Plus, it wasn’t just the wealthy who got a tax cut. Everyone who pays taxes did.
Another epic Democratic failure here. I notice none of these people were holding up checks that they’ve written tot he IRS out of guilt. Nobody is preventing them from donating money. Instead, they wants yours.

Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, said in a phone interview that groups like Tax-Us should put their money where their mouths are.

“I’m afraid our rich liberal friends are wrong about everything,” he said. “Making a bunch of noise about how much you want to do something and not doing it – really? That’s not the act of a serious person.”

By the way, the head of this so-called non-partisan group is a maximum contributor to Barack Obama and also donates to Nancy Pelosi. Funny that. Curiously, another of their leaders has given Obama nearly $5000. It would be helpful to their readers if this information was disclosed, don’t you think?

    Hey, Reich. Stop claiming any deductions. Your taxes will go up. Mission accomplished.

    This is what’s called a ‘telling statement’: “I’m not a 1%, I’m a 5%. ” It’s a twofer. He gets to preen AND he excludes himself from the purge of the kulaks.

    BTW: I did not know that the problem was wealthy people needed to have money taken from them by force. All the leftists told me that wealthy people had all sorts of advantages. But it seems that they are equal in that they need their money taken from them; they can’t just pony up. Like say….any self employed person in this country.

    Maybe next year when ‘their tax guy’ does their return, he can use the newly minted ‘star pupil’ tax rate instead of the standard.
