Tax Cuts: Democrat Style

The Democrats' Version of Tax Cuts
If you don't understand the Democrats' version of tax cuts (and you are not
alone), maybe this will help explain it:
50,000 people went to a baseball game, but the game was rained out. A refund
was then due.
The team was about to mail refunds when the Congressional Democrats stopped
them and suggested that they send out refund amounts based on the Democrat
National Committee's interpretation of fairness.
After all, if the refunds were made based on the price each person paid for
the tickets, most of the money would go to the ticket holders of the most
expensive tickets. That would be unfair and unconscionable.
People in the $10 seats will get back $15, because they have less money to
spend. Call it an "Earned Income Ticket Credit." Persons "earn" it by
demonstrating little ambition, few skills and poor work habits, thus keeping
them at entry-level wages.
People in the $25 seats will get back $25, because that's only fair.
People in the $50 seats will get back $1, because they already make a lot of
money and don't need a refund. After all, if they can afford a $50 ticket,
then they must not be paying enough taxes.
People in the $75 luxury seats will have to pay another $50, because they
have way too much to spend.
The people driving (or walking) by the stadium who couldn't afford to watch
the game will get $10 each, even though they didn't pay anything in, because
they need the most help (sometimes known as Affirmative Action!).
Now do you understand?
If not, for assistance contact Nancy Pelosi.
