Joe Biden has now declared that it is patriotic to pay taxes. Aside from forgetting the fact that 40% of all Americans pay no income tax, this is the most ridiculous argument that I have ever heard. It is designed to set up the false premise that to be patriotic, you have to pay taxes. So, if you don't pay taxes, you are a traitor? Seems curious that Biden would make that statement about people who are just scraping by on their social security checks.
But what is amusing about this absurd argument, is that Rep. Charlie Rangel, (D-NY) the head of the House committee that sets the tax code, has come into some problems of his own for not paying taxes. I can see every tax attorney before all of the tax courts of this great land, pleading that their clients should never have to be convicted because the code is so complex, that even the guy who writes it can't follow it.
Of course, this is just another example of the arrogance of power. But it's okay. They're Democrats. They mean only the best for us.
