Class Warfare Cartoons

Today, President Obama proposed $1.5 trillion in new taxes aimed primarily at the wealthy as part of a deficit reduction plan. Predictibly, politicians on the right have labeled this “class warfare” and claim Obama wants to “punish success.”

I love it when the rich scream class warfare and get all upset because everyone demands more of their money.

Welcome to the rest of the world, there isn’t a day that goes by that at least 50% of the nation wonders how they are going to pay off all their financial demands.    of course at least 10% has given up and 30% or less can meet their needs without issue.  

10%… are so freaking wealthy their worried about the rising cost of a new yacht or luxury car and complaining that $250,000 isn’t what it used to be…

welcome to reality – most of us won’t even see $100,000 in a year.  (gross)

What we need instead of class warfare is Citizen warfare!!! Stop forcing our citizens to pay for services for Illegal Aliens and a good portion of our financial problems will be over. If we don’t feed them, they will go home. Just think, money earned by legal workers would be spent here rather than sent to relatives in Mexico. Taxes would be paid on wages instead of filtering down to the Mexican upper class who exploit their poor. There are the rich people you should hate!!!!

If the ‘rich’ do own 70% of the wealth- a number I’ve seen touted more than once- I say have 70% of the taxes come from them. THAT is paying their fair share.

I wonder what would happen if the Dems proposed Reagan-era tax rates for the top 10% of the country- which were much higher than today (the top rate was 50%, right now it’s 35%). Would the republicans emulate their ‘hero,’ or would it be impossible for them to even consider turning back the clock?

It does! 70% of all federal taxes comes from the top 10% of earners. How about we REALLY have everyone pay their fair share and start taxing the 51% of people who pay $0.

uhm….
What about the 47% of working people that pay zero federal taxes, or better yet, receive a refund for funds they never actually paid? Those refunds come out of MY pocket…

I absolutely agree!
Better yet: how about we eliminate everything from the federal government that is not specifically mentioned in the Constitution – everything else can be privatized. If I want a particular service, I pay for it directly, not get billed for the bazillion programs i have no use for.

What about them?
Do you want them to starve? be homeless? All because they’re paying taxes on wages that are already so low they’re often being subsidized with FoodStamps?

“How about we REALLY have everyone pay their fair share and start taxing the 51% of people who pay $0.”
So: raise their wages to the point where they can afford to pay income tax without having to give up paying rent or buying food. Or would you rather offset the income tax with housing subsidies and even more FoodStamps?

I agree, but the rest still would be here with their hand out.  Try putting a pile of bird seed in your back yard and see what happens. The first place these guys go after crossing the border is the Catholic church where they are given instructions on where to go and what to say!! Later it’s out to hunt for work. Remember that tons of them are on the street corner being picked up by the private
citizens. There is no way to regulate that and Hey, cheap labor is the only way for us to
get some of the money stolen from you by the Feds who support these
guys.

Medical School, got it.

All you need is $X0,000 a semester, transportation, electronics, money for books, a means of getting to college, all the basic living items they can’t afford x 7-10 years of schooling, and an employment plan they’re not being offered.

EVERYONE will make a million dollars!

There are more then one way to make money other then sit on your A$$, stick your hand out, and expect government to give you everything.

Go get a job, even if its underpaid job *fyi a job is better then no job* or join the dam military.

I’m doing quite well in school with 3.8 GPA with 0 loans or any hand outs given to me (yes its quite amazing that I’m Hispanic and yes my father is illegal immigrant). O wait, I forgot people actually have to work to get a degree in Engineering and actually be in shape for the military, my apologize. I forgot that it requires sweat and effort to obtain a degree and sacrifice my time serving the country I love so I can save my money for college.

If it was only that easy, or is it…

Here’s a great I dea why don’t you go back where you came from and leave us alone since we were here first-A$$hole

if you weren’t so inbred you’d realize we were here first. soo if you don’t lkike it go back where you came from

If they are here illegally, you bet your a$$ I want them to starve OR go home and hit up the wealthy Mexicans!!!!! Do any of you realize that Mexico has practically NO middle class????

Illegal aliens areon’t only from Mexioc. Man, how ignorant people can be online, but probably never say this ever in person when confronted by a Mexican.

What are you talking about? Illegals struggle every day as it is for menial labor that can’t support their family. Those “rich” that you speak of aren’t even illegal. And if they do exist and ARE illegal, it must be a very, VERY rare exception. But I guess that’s ok that you talk mess since you probably aren’t going to do anything about it anyway.

Okay, I’d like to go ahead and say I AM an American. And I personally think people should stop sitting around complaining about Mexicans. If you don’t want them over here, get your ass on over to border control. 

So, because you’re not smart enough to create a successful business or product, or won’t sacrifice the 60- to 70 hours a week (minimum) it takes to be that kind of successful, it’s their responsibility to wipe your poor little victim backside? You are a pathetic excuse for an American, and the people who made this nation great are ashamed of the likes of you.

Actually, you’re right. Illegal aliens aren’t all from Mexico. Very true. However, there aren’t very many Canadians trashing people’s land and murdering ranchers who are merely trying to protect their property. And Canadians can probably spell the name of their own country.

Unless you belong to the original Native American tribes, you have no business bitching about ‘illegals’.

@ J-m-doster and i quote:  “I love it when the rich scream class warfare and get all upset because everyone demands more of their money.”   So, just how much of other people’s money do you think you are entitled to, anyways?  How loud will *you* scream when I come to your home and take *your* stuff?

Reagan actually  *reduced* the tax rates to 15%, 28% and 35%.  I was there.  The federal revenues actually increased. 

I have never been able to figure why you sneak up here because you can’t exist in Mexico and don’t have the guts to do something about the corrupt mess your country is in and THEN fly your little Mexican flags and try to change this country into a place like the one you just ran away from????? You are crazy and I DON’T want to pay for your services up here you blood suckers!!!

Of course the rich I speak of are not illegals!!! They live in Mexico sucking the blood out of the Lower class poor Mexicans still living there. And where do the poor get their money from??? You got it, from illegals working in the US getting their services for free from our govt so they can send the money they make here back to their relatives in Mexico. Time to go back home to Mexico and settle up with those rich ba$tard$!
