Harry: Mo’ taxes, mo’ taxes, mo’ taxes from the makers for the takers

Harry Reid insists on more taxes today on ABC’s “This Week,” and says the American people are behind him.

Reid

Harry, who hasn’t passed a budget in the Senate in nearly four years, said, “The American people are on our side. The American people don’t believe in these austere things. We believe that the rich should contribute. We believe we should fill those tax loopholes — get rid of them, I should say. And that’s where we need to go.”

Maybe he is right. The American people re-elected a redistributionist president. From each according to his means, to each according to whatever he wants — Medicaid, subsidized health insurance, food stamps, welfare checks, loot from Obama’s stash.

    Count me out Harry! This is one American who’s B R O K E and can’t afford to P A Y more so you and your pals can buy votes from the something for nothing crowd so they can stay home and party while suckers like me foot the bill!

    You left out underaged Dominican prostitutes.

  4. Actually, I think Harry’s friend Bob paid for those, probably at a reduced congressional rate.

    Right you are – it’s all a matter of the makers vs. the takers.

    “a reduced congressional rate.”

    Yep, buying in bulk will usually get you a reduced rate.

  7. Glad we agree, Petey.

    Who says that’s agreement? Nyp’s definition of “taker” is likely anyone with income over 200,000 a year.
    And “maker” means “laborer”.

    It’s just Harry Reid getting in on the “We, the people” over-magnanimous reference that Obama used during his inauguration speech, suddenly these two wealthy ideologues are as one with the people. That’s individually, of course, as it’s unlikely Obama seeks the company or advice of Harry Reid. This statement might be the very first time that he has used the word “austere” in political discourse, although he may have used it to describe his humble and hardscrabble youth in Searchlight. He’s kind of a modern day Horation Alger in that regard, the brave little boy overcomes adversity, etc., but now in his dotage, like King Midas, wants everything he touches to turn to gold. And that has come to pass.

  10. Harry has Jay Brown to do the touching, so he won’t get his fingers or his “cleanface” dirty.

    The mystery, then, if it’s a mystery to others than myself, is Harry this man’s puppet, thus our shadow senator? Who is he, where did he come from, and what’s in it for him?

  12. Power.

    So are you ridiculing what Harry said or his hypocrisy at saying it?
