Princess Pelosi's quote couldn't top this braindead quote, which illustrates the brilliance of the liberal mentality. Here's the context. Twitter is currently headquartered in San Francisco. But it is thinking of moving its headquarters to a city where its taxes would be lower. As of right now, Twitter has to pay a 1.5% payroll tax in San Francisco. It is considering moving to where it does not have to pay the payroll tax .. unless San Francisco approves a six-year tax break. The vote on that tax break is today.
So this brings us to John Avalos, a member of the Board of Supervisors Budget and Finance Committee. He says that the proposal doesn't seem fair, considering the financial struggles of residents in his district. He says, "Who are the [Twitter] investors? Probably some of the wealthiest people in this country. And we are giving them more wealth."
"We are giving them more wealth." This is a typical theme of liberals. When you allow people to keep more of the money they have earned by lowering taxes, liberals can be depended on to make mindless comments about "giving" to the rich. The liberal philosophy just does not want to recognize the concept of earned income. Why not? You need to remember that liberals are all about redistributing wealth. To support the concept of government mandated wealth redistribution you have to create a false reality where all wealth is owned by government. After all, how are you going to distribute or redistribute something that belongs to someone else? So by operating on the premise that all wealth belongs to the government ... or to "the people," as liberals might prefer phrasing it ... you can make asinine statements about "giving" money to people or companies through tax breaks.
Remember folks, government creates NO wealth. Government SEIZES wealth. The government cannot "give" anything to anyone that it does not first take from someone else. But according to this moonbat in San Francisco, a tax break means that we are "giving them more wealth." Unbelievable. Where do we find these people? Oh that's right .. in San Francisco.
