Why are Democrats opposed to people keeping more of their money? When Democrats had control of both houses and the presidency between 2008 – 2010, they did nothing to address off-shore tax havens. The party did nothing to overhaul the burdensome tax code. Nor did the party address companies hiding their money in other countries.
What did democrats do? They passed the so called affordable health care act that put more taxes on people.
Why is that? If Democrats refuse to address taxes, why are they opposed to the GOP tax reform?
Let’s say the wealthy keep more of their money, so what? Who do you think builds their mansions, their clothes, ships the stuff they buy… etc? The wealthy provide jobs to the working class in one way or another. Take a look at Mike Tyson and MC Hammer. They burned though millions. That money was put back into the economy.
