Like any lefty joe Biden believes paying more taxes is the patriotic duty of wealthier Americans! Of course they have such selfish government-centered worldview which views the quality of citizenship from the top-down, but rarely do they ever say it so clearly.
Maybe O’Biden is really trying to get Obama to replace him sometime in October with She Who Must Not Be Named. If he keeps this up, it might be prudent!
Historically speaking, just check out the Constitution for another perspective on Democrats and taxes: the Feds got into your wallet before allowing us to elect Senators directly… and seven years before women could vote! Remember it was also the Dems that created the ridiculously Marxist-sounding “Undistributed Profits Tax” (1936) during the Great Depression; a period which Obama desperately wants to emulate in order to get votes. I wouldn’t put it past these two to come up with clever ways to screw us for the appearance of populist zeal.
