Ronald Reagan: Guilty of Socialism, Class Warfare
The concept of irony is way beyond the grasp of most teabaggers. But for the rest of the population — i.e. people whose IQs are HIGHER than their shoe sizes — this is just too much.
Ronald Reagan — God of the Far Right, Guiding Light of the Teatards — raised corporate taxes and closed corporate tax loopholes. These two actions together (part of the 1986 Tax Reform Act) brought in an additional $420 billion over the next five years.
When President Reagan learned that General Electric was slithering out of paying any taxes whatsoever, he said to his Treasury Secretary, “I didn’t realize things had gotten that far out of line.”
During the signing ceremony for his 1986 Tax Reform Act, Reagan said:
“We’re going to make it economical to raise children again. Flatter rates will mean more reward for that extra effort, and vanishing loopholes and a minimum tax will mean that everybody and every corporation pay their fair share.”
Commie! If the teawipes found out their swashbuckling hero was actually a wealth-redistributing socialist, they’d have a mass heart attack. Hmmm…come to think of it — spread the word!
With today being Tax Day and all that, MoveOn.org is organizing 300 Tax Day: Make Them Pay events across the country. It’s gotta be done.
