Republican Debate: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly - Page 2
The Ugly: “Out of every dollar I earn, how much do you think that I deserve to keep?”
This was “the number one ranked question on YouTube and Google”, and was repeated from the previous debate. Michele Bachmann said the questioner earned the money, and deserved to keep every dollar. She is wrong.
The correct answer: if you live in America and resent paying taxes, then you are greedy and ungrateful. You’re lucky you don’t have to give your life for your country, like the thousands who have died protecting us in the war on al Qaeda. You go to school for free, drive for free on our interstate highway system burning some of the cheapest gas in the world, breath clean air, drink clean water, enjoy the free use of vast expanses of national parkland. And you bitch and moan about taxes?
As a great man once said: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”
