Inquiring minds are laughing at how statist liberals only seem to know one phrase…tax and spend! It is amazing that it never matters whether there is a boom economy or a bust economy, good time or bad, inflationary or deflationary…there is only one answer: Tax and spend!
German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday renewed her call for a tax on international financial markets, insisting she would not give up the fight despite hefty opposition from her global partners
“We will continue to work for a tax on the financial markets,” Merkel said in a stormy debate in parliament on her government’s 2011 budget.
“The finance minister is doing this in several discussions and we are going to try to persuade as many countries as possible. Unfortunately, the world is not always as we would wish … but we are not going to give up,” she added.
You see the people are idiots. Low-life grunt brains incapable of understanding what is really wrong. These Solons are the only ones who know what really is important:
The proposal, driven by France and Germany and aimed at clawing back billions of euros given to banks in the financial crisis, has run into stiff resistance from several countries, notably Sweden and Britain.
At the level of the Group of 20 developed and developing nations, there is still more discord, with Canada and emerging market economies leading the battle against it. A G20 summit takes place in South Korea in November.
“We are sticking to the principle that every product, every actor, every financial market participant should be regulated so that we have an overview of what is happening on the financial markets,” Merkel said.
In the face of sustained heckling from opposition parties, Merkel trumpeted the achievements of the German economy that has bounced back strongly from last year’s recession, which was the worst in modern history.
“We are once again the growth engine of Europe,” Merkel said, adding that unemployment in the continent’s biggest economy could soon fall under the three-million mark.
That is what the leftist’s think of what heroism is…cramming down taxes to an ignorant group of The Great Unwashed.
That brings us to the disgusting idea of using the name “Robin Hood” as a tax advocate (see image at the top of this article). What hogwash. It is sacrilegious to his memory. Robin Hood stood up to an over-taxing monarch. He wasn’t for increasing taxes. Does the left have no shame? This is almost as bad as when liberals say that Jesus believed in taxing populations to promote charity.
Liberals are so out of ideas they will stoop to anything just to sound important.
