Now there are the many reasons why I could never be a Democrat, but one of the more obvious reasons is that it simply requires the expending of so much energy. For one thing, to be a Democrat you have to be creative in coming up with reasons why it is that you oppose those laws that make the most sense and would be most beneficial to the most people, solely because they run contrary to your leftwing ideology. You have to work very hard at making the insane sound, sane. Also, you must be completely oblivious to reason, and be able to make up your own ‘facts’ in order to justify why you oppose legislation that actually makes sense.
For instance, Democrat Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts during a recent interview on Fox News, railed against GOP-led tax cuts before admitting that they will likely result in lower electricity rates for people in her home state. But she then back-peddled a bit after Bret Baier mentioned energy companies are planning rate cuts in response to reduced corporate taxes. She said, “And good for them. I’m delighted to hear that.” After that she ranted about the giant corporations getting tax breaks and how she wanted to stop it, utterly oblivious to the fact that it was the same giant corporations extending the tax cuts to their customers, who were benefiting.
Massachusetts energy giant Eversource announced earlier this month that paying millions of dollars less in taxes under the new tax law President Donald Trump signed in December would allow it to reduce rates for customers. The law, which received no Democrat support in Congress whatsoever, slashes the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent. And apparently the fact that her constituents will now be able to pay less in utility rates matters little to the senator. Which makes one wonder why it is that any of her many constituents would bother voting to reelect her. But then we are talking about folks who kept Teddy Kennedy in the Senate for nearly 50 years.
So let’s get that straight, Warren actually said she wanted to get rid of the tax cuts, unable to grasp that the tax cuts are the exact instrument that enabled the energy company to cut rates for consumers. Warren was supposed to be smart enough to be a Harvard professor. It’s got to be painful to contort herself this way. What’s more, it’s not the first time she’s had to do it, jumping like a monkey to Trump the organ-grinder’s tune. According to Fox News’s Sean Hannity, citing Townhall, when asked about the bonuses company after company has showered on American workers in the wake of the tax cut bill’s passage, she danced to pretty much the same tune.
She said, “Look, I am glad when I read that there are companies that have given out $1,000 bonuses. There are companies that say they’re going to re-work some of their benefit plans. I’m in favor of all of that. I want to see working families do better, you bet.” She followed it with another rant howling about how corporations – those same corporations handing out the bonuses – had benefited and how that somehow was a bad thing. She apparently thinks Massachusetts’s workers are stupid and are unable to see any connection between bonus money in their pockets and the tax breaks extended to the people who employ them.
Warren, who has become one of President Trump’s biggest opponents, also appeared to double back and chastise the very measure allowing energy companies to slash rates. And it was in speaking about Republicans’ being able to reduce corporate tax rates that this reject from a loony bin said, “What we have to do is change it.” She went on to say, “You got to take out the parts that are giant giveaways to big corporations that right now the Republicans plan for hard-working families to eventually pay for it.” This is what I mean by trying to make the insane sound sane. You honestly can’t make this stuff up. And yet…
Liberalism is being unable to admit to that the government doesn’t actually make any money, it provides no goods or services in order to do so. Therefore it has to steal what money it brings in from hardworking American tax payers. Despite claims always made by those on the left, tax cuts ALWAYS generate MORE revenue and an expanded economy. And it was Hitlery, you may recall, who made the rather bold statement that our economy ALWAYS does better when there is a Democrat in the White House. And yet it was their way of handling the economy, under Barry, that resulted in the fourth worst U.S. economy in history. So tell me again how the Democrats are for the middle-class.
