Over at Say Anything, Rob Port posts a telling exchange with New York Senator Chuck Schumer:
He does sound a lot like California Democrats eager to keep our taxes high even as the Golden State hemorrhages jobs.
Port finds this to be an example of the New York Democrat’s hypocrisy:
On Schumer’s own website he touts the “Making Work Pay” tax relief which was part of President Obama’s “stimulus” spending spree. We can argue about whether or not that was actual tax relief or just a one-time check from the government, but the principle remains.
Democrats, when it came to the “Making Work Pay” policy, espoused the idea that temporarily lowering tax burdens would help individuals and businesses. If that’s true, then permanently lowering those tax burdens should be even better, no?
We should also note Schumer’s abundant experience creating jobs; he has spent his entire career in public office. Elected to the New York Assembly the same year he graduated from Harvard Law School, the career politician has never worked in the private sector.
