I would put Academy Award-winning actress Whoopi Goldberg as the poster child of every American who support the Democrat party. It would be fair to say she represents Hollywood, the Mainstream Media, the left wing nuts, and the angry Democrats, who are sick of George W. Bush.
She gave a revealing interview that demonstrates the public opinion among Democrats.
“Whenever Democrats get in, taxes do go up. . . I believe that it doesn’t matter who gets into office, taxes are going to go up. We have two wars and a lot of stuff to pay for, and a lot of unanswered questions --so it’s not surprising to me.”
Again, she repeats herself,
“As you know, whenever Democrats get in, taxes do go up. . . And if they go up and they work the way that Bill Clinton’s tax plan worked, I’m okay with that.”
Then, she finally said,
“Everybody’s taxes are going up and, you know, nobody wants to raise taxes, nobody wants to pay more taxes, but if we want the freedoms that we talk about having, we want them for everybody. . . We want everybody to be able to go to the doctor. We want everybody to be able to do all the things they want to do. Then somebody’s got to pay for it, and it’s people making a lot of dough, and that’s the way the American system has always been.”
Well she is right in a way. Someone will have to pay for it. What she is not telling you is that the Democrat Majority in Congress will take away our deductions from our 401K and other deductible retirement accounts and will permanently repeal the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT), a tax that will be paid nearly exclusively by 25 million middle-class families. Whoopi is right that it will be people with lots of dough who will pay for the freedom that we talk about having. Those people she is referring to is YOU. It will be people who holds a pension plan and those who holds a good job. That is practically everybody in America.
Hey, Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden was criticized by Republicans, and others, for saying it is “patriotic” for the rich to pay higher taxes. We already heard Obama told Joe “The Plumber” in Ohio that he wants to “spread the wealth around” with his tax plan. Doesn't that tell you something?
Beside Obama and Biden's gaffe, Whoopi is not immune to make the same mistake.
During her interview she said, "The more you make, the more you pay and that’s not socialism, that’s not anything but the American way.” Yet she forgets to say that it wrong for the government to take more money from us and redistribute that to those who don't pay any taxes. That is called Socialism.
If the Democrats really believe in this crap, supports Obama in this election, and Obama wins, I hope that every single Obama voter gets the shaft. We will see young voter unable to get a job because Obama will ruin the economy. We will see working people get screwed when the Democrats take away the deductions from our 401K and other retirement account. Therefore, it will make it hard for us to save. We will see the elderly abandoned by an Obama Health Care Plan. Socialize medicine will ration the medical needs of our elderly. By nationalizing our health care system, the idea is take care of those who will get well faster. Therefore, the elderly will understand why socialize medicine failed in Canada, UK, and Australia.
Obama is wrong for America. Why take that chance?
