So many people are surprised Donald Trump says he is willing to pay more in taxes and the rich should too. This is not the first time he’s said this. Tax breaks for lower and middle class while holding the upper bracket accountable and stop letting them off the hook with bogus “tax breaks.”
He’s looking at the nation as a huge business to be managed, in part, and that’s not unreasonable. That will anger a lot of people, but it’s how you straighten the budget out and get people’s hands out of the till.
Trump knows there are many, many wealthy liberals in Hollywood and corporate America who bang the drum for higher taxes but pay none themselves, remember Comcast? The liberal hypocrites need to pay up.
U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Sunday he was open to raising taxes on the rich, backing off his prior proposal to reduce taxes on all Americans and breaking with one of his party’s core policies dating back to the 1990s.
“I am willing to pay more, and you know what, the wealthy are willing to pay more,” Trump told ABC’s “This Week.”
After effectively sealing the Republican nomination for the Nov. 8 presidential election last week, Trump has used speeches and interviews to offer more details on his policy positions.
The billionaire real estate tycoon has said he would like to see an increase in the minimum wage, although he told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday he would prefer to see states take the lead on that front instead of the federal government.
“I don’t know how people make it on $7.25 an hour,” Trump said of the current federal minimum wage. “I would like to see an increase of some magnitude. But I’d rather leave it to the states. Let the states decide.”
Trump will make a fantastic President. He is only saying we will pay taxes like we have supposed to be paying all along no more being deceitful to avoid paying taxes. This is what he is saying!
As a conservative, I don’t believe the rich should pay ridiculous taxes, but they should not have all the loopholes that exist, especially the super-rich. We can’t ignore that the super rich have been taking advantage for far too long, can we?
