Robin Hood proposal

To the Editor:

I have seen some stupid things printed in this newspaper, but this is over the top.

From the wire story “Watchdog group: Tax cuts will hurt small business,” “A progressive tax watchdog group is releasing a new report that says rolling back Illinois’ temporary income tax as scheduled would hurt small businesses.”

This is the same old mantra – tax the rich, class warfare – the left has been spewing forever. It sounds good until you realize that anyone with a job is considered rich by this group.

By this logic, we can tax ourselves into prosperity, although no civilization in history has ever been able to do so.

Face it, progressives never found a tax they didn’t like, especially if it is punitive toward the rich and has a redistribution-of-wealth ring to it. The Robin Hood proposal.

The real rich always will find a way to shelter their wealth and leave the working guy with the bill.
