The Progressive Tax is About Condoning Theft in the Name of Socialist-Style “equality;”

The Left’s Unjust “Justice”

on December 8th, 2010
Jedediah Bila

This past weekend, I had a conversation about extending the Bush tax cuts with a proud member of New York City’s Left.

I was called the usual names—unfair and ally of the rich—because I voiced that taxes shouldn’t be raised on anyone during times of economic distress. He retorted that “the rich” could stand to lose a few bucks.

That sort of thinking turns my stomach, to tell you the truth. Not only because it reminds me of our Redistributionist-in-Chief’s October 2008 unscripted reply to Joe Wurzelbacher that, “I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” But because it’s profoundly un-American.
