At last - TRUE REASON!
Taxes for an Ownership Society
I long to hear Edwards (and Kerry) revert to the argument that the Bush agenda (and catch phrases) actually represent an insidious effort to shift the burden of taxation from income to wages, from capital onto labor -- that the Bush plans would inevitably shift the burden of supporting government onto working people. Not only would this be unfair, it would cripple our economy and economic prospects by creating disincentives for work. It would transform us and speed our transformation from a producing society into one that merely provides capital investment. Instead of making things, America will become a country that provides the investment capital. Fine you say? OK. But what happens to the 95% of people who get their living from work? Do they all get service jobs? Is that the future we want?
