Not A Millionaire? You're A Jackass If You Vote Republican

You're a jackass if you're a non-millionaire voting for Republicans according to Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks. He shares this point after breaking down a clip of Republican Senator John Cornyn on Fox News talking about why the GOP opposes the Buffet Rule which would raise taxes on money earned after the first million dollars of income.

  • Comment of user 'T0M65' has been deleted by author (after account deletion)!
  • So, Obama uses every tax loop hole in the book, made more than 6 times than I did yet I paid more in taxes.

    The problem is you make money. Then you invest it in something, and are taxed on that. Then you die and leave it to your family and taxed on that. When does the taxing stop?
    When does the spending stop?

  • What is the reason for raising taxes on the rich? Is it just punitive or does it serve a purpose? Some people are just jealous of the rich, and instead of striving to be as successful as the rich, they try to penalize them. They want to see the rich end up poor instead of the poor ending up rich.

    Democrats...

  • 1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

    2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

    3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

    4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

    5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half More..

  • only 2% of the pop should vote Republican, the conservative party has not one policy to help the middle class. The richest one percent dont create jobs and over the last 15 years Republican policies have proved it.

    W's presidency produce 200k jobs over 8 years with those wonderful tax cuts for the wealthy.

    Cenk is absolutely right, you are a dumbass if you arent filthy rich and vote republican

    • @deznutts You can't actually support any of your own gibberish. You keep voting for more welfare because Pelosi the brainless harpy told you it's the best stimulus. While Texas creates all the jobs and California begs the rest of the country for welfare.

      Why do you think California minus the illegals has a shrinking population? Why do you think Texas is creating all the jobs? Why do you think businesses are flooding out of California, and in to Texas, and taking their jobs with them?

      Why do yo More..

    • @ST0N3PONY - The 80% jobs Texas is creating is in Walmarts and fast food restaurants. Look it up. Texas's average household income levels are going DOWN even with higher employment levels. They have the worse schools, worse crime worse environment of any state.

      So, YES look at Texas, the GOP wet-dream of a state.

    • @viennachoirboy Sorry, get your information from somewhere other than dipshit toddler leftists.com okay?

      East Texas is replacing silicon valley. Businesses are leaving CA, and moving to TX, and taking their jobs with them.

      Every credible financial journal ranks CA at or near the bottom in jobs and business friendliness. TX always at or near the top.

      AKA your retarded welfare for everybody because it's free and let's all live in Candyland in gum-drop houses liberal bullshit has failed and ever More..

  • Wow! Reading the following comments is proof that Cenk is right. The comments below are off-topic, non-sensical and yea, they sound like the ravings of jackasses. Not just Republicans - many of the idiots below are those saying "Don't vote at all!" because all politicians are the same.

    Not voting is just as bad as voting against your own interests, jackasses.

  • You want the ability to become a millionaire someday. You're a jackass if you vote democrat.

    Liberals love to slam the door behind them. Bet'cha ole Scank here is well on his way, if not already a millionaire. If I have a million dollars and so does everyone else, what's my million really worth, right? Where will it end?

    • @_Byron_ - how so? Socialist policies - the interstate highway system, US Military, police, fire, public health initiatives, etc., etc., etc. - have been the greatest boast to the American standard of living than ANY free market option ever had.

    • @neutral_person umm no Reagan's policies raised the national debt. Clinton balanced the budge and had some of the highest tax rates ever around 37 percent

    • @neutral_person - actually, overall tax rates during Reagan were higher than they were today. Also, even though Reagan cut taxes his first year, he raised them again his second.

      At NO TIME IN HISTORY has "Voodoo Economics" every delivered greater revenues to offset their related tax cuts.

  • I think I like this guy.

    All politicians are crooked in some way or another. Replitards and libtards alike. The problem in America is that constituents of either party will defend with teeth anything their politicians do and be equally as vicious in cases where the opposite party gets caught. It's a seriously divided country right now. I think both major parties should simply be disbanded and outlawed considering the damage their partisan bickering is causing.

    Fuck I hate this asshole. He's as dumb as a brick and a terrible "journalist" to boot.

    Lots of rich people are democrats as well, Cenk. Warren Buffet and George Soros, just to name two easy ones. Michael Moore as well, but he's an irrelevant fatass.

    • @jum_runky - and you point is?

      Republicans keep crying that the rich 1% have 35% to 50% (depending who's talking) tax rates. The Moderates want to reduce that to 30% - giving them a tax CUT - and the GOP objects?

      There's more to this story....

    • @viennachoirboy

      Obama actually extended the Tax Increase Prevention and Reconciliation Act in order to prolong the decreased capital gains tax for the rich.

      This isn't a dem vs repub issue. It's the wealthy vs everyone else. Both dems and republicans have big business' hand on their shoulder.
