Paying Taxes Shows Patriotism
A La Joe Biden
“Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which best pays the treasury. There is not even a patriotic duty to increase one’s taxes. Over and over again the Courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everyone does it, rich and poor alike and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands.”
Hey – wait a minute! Did Biden really call for higher taxes? or did he call for (some) Americans to pay more than the tax code says as an act of patriotism? We report, you decide.
Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden says that paying higher taxes is the patriotic thing to do for wealthier Americans.
Biden told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Thursday that, in his words, “it’s time to be patriotic – time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.”
Why, yes he did. So place a question mark at the end of this post’s title, and know that the answer is “no”.
