Schumer Has A Plan
Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat, N.Y. thinks the president’s plan to raise the taxes on households making more than $250,000 may require a special dispensation for New Yorkers.
After President Obama unveiled his totally new plan for the new plan for deficit-reduction that Americans hear about every other month, the plan that raises taxes on households that have an income of over $250,000, he flew to New York for a fundraising event (tickets were priced at $36,000).
A reporter, Marcia Kramer asked lawmakers from the New York region what they thought of President Obama’s tax plans. Most of the legislators were in step with the president, but Schumer stood up for his limousine Liberals. He supports the millionaire’s tax, but with caveats. He feels the $250,000 limit is unacceptable for the metropolitan area of New York, because of the high cost of living within the city.
“$250,000 makes you really rich in Mississippi, but it doesn’t make you rich at all in New York and there ought to be some kind of scale based on the cost of living on how much you pay.”
Schumer already has the rest of the country subsidizing the high rollers of New York with federal tax deductions for local and state taxes, but he seeks more advantages for his constituents.
While our Limousine Liberals beg to be taxed more, they like Buffet will use every device to keep from paying the taxes they have asked for; they don’t really plan to be required to pay the taxes, after all they paid $36,000 for a dinner, they want the people in fly over country paying the taxes.
