Thanks to President Obama, the evil Republicans were finally forced to allow the omniscient and all good federal government to take a little bit more money from rich people. I’m really glad. Those damn rich people were really getting on my nerves with all their money. They have way more than they need. Take Donald Trump. Does he really need that fancy helicopter? I don’t have one, why should he? Yes, I know, the tax increase is not going to force him to give it up, but perhaps our government should set their sites on making him share it. For example, let’s say I want to go to Six Flags Great America next July 4. The traffic is horrible. Why can’t I reserve Donald Trump’s helicopter to pick me up and drop me off and bring me home again? That would be more fair than just letting Trump hog it SOLELY BECAUSE HE OWNS IT. And what good would that helicopter be anyway if not for the taxpayer supported infrastructure (like the airport and the road to the airport) that Trump uses.
I don’t get these Republicans. What’s with this private property thing anyway? Nothing is really private, or I should say, nothing has any worth without the federal government to support it. Why don’t rich people get it. Sell the yacht and sponsor a teacher (oops- I mean educator) and make sure that the most important job in the country is properly compensated. If anyone in our country should be rich, its teach- er, educators. They do everything for the children. C’mon, you rich bastards, ante up.
Speaking of the children, President Obama and the democrats are doing a lot for the children as well. By making sure none of them have the opportunity to get rich (by saddling them with student loan debt, medicaid and social security debt, pension debt and debt in general), our President is assuring them a future wherein they will never have to bitch about taxes on the rich. There won’t be any. (Rich that is; there’ll be plenty of taxes.)
