It's no wonder that liberals who get their news from PBS and friends continue to believe that despite our freedom and prosperity America is going to hell in a handbasket. There was certainly no ideological balance presented either by the moderator or the candidates.
Without the efforts of our favorite radio talk show host, himself the prime target of liberal attacks using the Fairness Doctrine, we might not have had the following compilation of Democrat views on tax fairness:
RUSH: One more sound bite from the All-American Presidential Forum on PBS last night with the Tavis Smiley doing the hosting. They all got a question about taxes. Do you agree the rich aren't paying their fair share of taxes? And here is a montage of their answers.You would think that after all these years of playing the class warfare card the Democrats would come up with some fresh material. But since their constituents, many of whom pay no taxes at all, continue to lap it up, why should the Democrats change?
EDWARDS: We need to get rid of George Bush's tax cuts for rich people.
BIDEN: I would eliminate the tax cut for the wealthy.
OBAMA: The Bush tax cuts, people aren't looking for charity. They want people paying their fair share of taxes.
KUCINICH: I want to see the wealthy pay their fair share.
GRAVEL: You think it's an accident that all of a sudden we wake up, that the wealthy aren't paying A fair share?
CLINTON: We have to change the tax system and we've gotta get back to having those with the most contribute.
No one in the "news" media seems to care that the Democrat line on taxes is just one gigantic lie!
On tax day this year I put together this post, which includes the IRS data showing that the Top 1% of U.S. income earners, those making more than $328,049, pay 36.89% of Federal personal income taxes.
So the "rich" who make up 1% of taxpayers and yet pay more than one third of all taxes are not "paying their fair share" according to Democrats?
When it comes to tax fairness it seems the rich pay more than their fair share. And when it comes to fairness in reporting, it seems PBS, who depends on tax dollars for support, aren't exactly "fair and balanced" when it comes to hosting political debates. And we might never know any of this was going on without talk radio!
