What Would Ronald Reagan Have Advised The GOP To Do Regarding The Buffett Rule?
The Republicans always cite Reagan as a hero and role model. In an amazing example of how much further the Republicans have moved to the right since Reagan, they now disagree with Reagan on the issue of the wealthiest Americans paying their fair share in taxes. Reagan and Obama actually agree on the issue. Tax loopholes make it easier for wealthy business owners to pay less. Obama wants them to pay their fair share and so do I, even if it means I pay more taxes too. If the money goes to schools and roads rather than arms and war I’m happy to pay taxes in support.
Check out this great video showing just how long we’ve all been fighting for fair tax rates (and what the GOP’s favorite hero even said about it). And if you like it and pass it on to a few friends, even better!
