Harry Reid - everyone wants to pay more taxes


You wouldn't think a politician would actually believe this, much less say it in any kind of public setting, but Senator Harry Reid said in an interview on KNPR that, "Everybody else, including rich people, are willing to pay more. They want to pay more."

Did you get that? You may not know it yet, but you want to pay more taxes.

I guess Harry Reid doesn't think most people are fed up with government waste and abuse. And maybe he doesn't think most people are sick of paying for people who won't work for a living and just want to collect welfare. Or maybe he doesn't think we are tired of bailing out big Wall Street firms or banks that gave risky loans to people who would never be able to pay them back.

Yes Harry, none of us feel like the government takes enough out of our income every month and we all want to pay more so you can hang out in the Senate and spout utterly senseless, completely ridiculous nonsense.

Oh yes, and it gets even more ridiculous because Reid thinks it is only the Republicans in Congress that are keeping this from getting done.

Read the important part of the transcript from Harry's interview on KNPR below:

HOST, KNPR: Would you make concessions on things like Medicare and Social Security if it helped lead to a long term deal?

SEN. HARRY REID (D-NV): Listen, we’re willing — the president has stuck his neck way out. He’s willing to do a lot of stuff with spending, but there has to be some reciprocity here. Once Republicans decide that they’re going to let — keep in mind, also, that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. The rich know that. The rich are willing to pay more. They’re not the ones out here saying, ‘please don’t tax me.’ The only people who feel there shouldn’t be more coming in to the federal government from rich people are the Republicans in the Congress. Everybody else, including rich people, are willing to pay more. They want to pay more. So, yeah, but we’re going to have to have mainstream Republicans step up again.
