Nancy Pelosi is either ignorant or one of the most deceitful people in government. Consider this statemement: “Giving $700 billion to the wealthiest people in America does add $700 billion dollars to the deficit. And the record and history shows and does not create jobs.” Keeping the current tax rates does not “give” money to anyone. Taxation “takes” money from those who have earned the money. It’s theft by government decree, and millions of people think it’s OK.
While most Americans would agree that stealing is wrong, they don’t seem to have a problem if someone steals for them. Consider the following: If John has a financial need, would it be right for him to rob his neighbors to supply that need? Most people would say no. Would it be right for John to get some of his friends to steal for him? Again, most people would say no. What if John convinces enough people to create a civil government that takes money from his neighbors to pay for things John and others need?
