Donald Trump was in no way a traditional president. However, he did one thing that was very traditionally Republican. He gave the richest people in the country a massive tax break.
Like Ronald Reagan and the Bushs before him, Trump said that the welfare of the richest people would grow the economy. However, it has been shown time and again that the trickle-down economy does not work.
However, Joe Biden’s goal is to actually tax the richest people in the country in order to help the poorest. And that drew the ire of Ben Shapiro and his Daily Wire panel.
Shapiro began: “I screamed on TV when he talked about taxes. Because what he says is so obviously stupid. When he says that rich people don’t pay their fair share in this country, that’s just a bitter, disgusting lie. It’s a lie. The top ten percent of the income earners in this country all pay net taxes. “
Co-host Jeremy Boreing then stepped in to lament:
“The people who don’t pay their fair share in this country are the poor. We need to raise taxes for the poor. I am not joking. I am not joking. The poor in this country pay zero. The lower middle class in this country pays zero net. So we have a group of people who don’t pay taxes, a group of people who don’t pay net taxes, a group of people who all pay net taxes, and his argument is that it’s category three who don’t pay their fair share . ”
Biden’s tax plan is widely supported by American voters. Tax increases for the poor would probably be surveyed very, very poorly.
