Tax the rich and hurt the poor... the rich don't pay taxes ... they pass them on to the poor in the form of increased prices and rents for their products, services, and rentals.
When the government taxes a rich landlord he raises his rents to offset the loss of income to taxes... The same thing happens for other products and services. It is the poor and middle class that are unable to pass on taxes, they end up funding or paying those taxes... So, tax the rich and major corporations and hurt the poor... as the rich and corporations pass on their taxes as the cost of doing business.
It should be understood that when the cost of goods and services increases... the consumers are unable to purchase as much, and the economy takes a nosedive, setting up a spiral downward... layoffs, plant closings, loss of revenue to fund the government, etc, which create further decreases in consumption and fewer jobs. Trickel down taxation destroys our economy, there are no free lunches and the rich pass on taxes, fees, licenses and other costs to their consumers.
Tax the Rich and hurt the poor...
