If their “logic” is correct, why not just jack up taxes on “the rich” to 95% and we’d dig ourselves out of the Obama Depression in no time.
By two-to-one (44% to 22%), the public says that raising taxes on incomes above $250,00o would help the economy rather than hurt it, while 24% say this would not make a difference. Moreover, an identical percentage (44%) says a tax increase on higher incomes would make the tax system more fair, while just 21% say it would make the system less fair.
So naturally, this bogus poll of idiots is touted as how by 2 to 1 people want Obama to raise taxes. This is called manufacturing the news. Nobody even bothers to ask what kind of sample they’re using or mention the fact it’s a far left polling outfit.
By a two-to-one margin, Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s plan to raise taxes on those making more than $250,000 a year would help the economy and make the tax system more fair, according to a Pew Research Center poll.
Forty-four percent believe raising taxes on incomes of more than $250,000 will help the economy, while 22 percent believe it will hurt, Pew found.
