Marxist ‘Occupy DC’ Protesters Hold Anti-Capitalist Rally at Chamber of Commerce:
Marxists, union officials, Code Pink leaders, and far left loons held a rally against capitalism today at the Chamber of Commerce Headquarters in Washington DC. The protesters reportedly said they want jobs – just not the kind of jobs created by Chamber of Commerce members in a free society.
That’s Marxist Medea Benjamin from Code Pink speaking to the protesters from the stage.
“Make the rich pay their fair share” is an Obama campaign slogan, and his new tax rule won’t even affect the rich
Many people have rightly pointed out that the Occupy Wall Street protesters are a diverse bunch with different beliefs, and as such have no single set list of demands. However, the one message that has been embraced by the majority of demonstrators is to “make the rich pay their fair share,” which has also been a consistently repeated talking point out of the Obama White House.
The problem with the so-called “Buffett tax rule,” or making the rich “pay their fair share,” which both the Obama administration and OWS protesters have jointly advocated, is that it will do nothing to “make the rich pay their fair share,” and everything to bankrupt middle class businesses, the lifeblood of the American economy.
As the Wall Street Journal reported, the Buffett tax rule, (In fact a tax ‘Dodge’), which White House Spokesman Jim Carney made it clear the Obama administration was behind, would mostly impact the middle class, not Warren Buffett or Wall Street corporations.
“Roughly 90% of the tax filers who would pay more under Mr. Obama’s plan aren’t millionaires, and 99.99% aren’t billionaires,” pointed out the WSJ analysis.
An excellent article by Chuck Norris highlights numerous different examples of where “pay their fair share” has become a White House talking point:
From a Sept. 19, 2011, press statement from the White House’s Office of the Secretary concerning the “Fact Sheet: Living Within Our Means and Investing in the Future – The President’s Plan for Economic Growth and Deficit Reduction”: “… asking the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations to pay their fair share. …”
From a Sept. 20, 2011, White House Rural Council blog post, titled, “Lessons from the Farm to Strengthen America,” written by Tom Vilsack, secretary of agriculture: “For agriculture, the plan focuses on what the President and I believe is one of the most pressing challenges facing producers right now … safety net and creating a better market for our agricultural goods. And it sets us on a path to compete by asking everyone to pay their fair share. …”
From an Aug. 4, 2011, post on the White House blog, titled, “All about the so-called ‘Super Committee’” and created by Jon Carson, who is deputy assistant to president and director of the White House Office of Public Engagement: “… asking millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share.”
From the July 9, 2011, “Statement from White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer on Budget Negotiations”: “We need a balanced approach that asks the very wealthiest and special interests to pay their fair share as well, and we believe the American people agree.”
