In his comments today urging his fellow Senators to waste $1 trillion of your money, John Kerry* made the following slip:
I’ve supported many tax cuts over the years, and there are tax cuts in this proposal. But a tax cut is non-targeted.
If you put a tax cut into the hands of a business or family, there’s no guarantee that they’re going to invest that or invest it in America.
They’re free to go invest anywhere that they want if they choose to invest.
It is rare that Democrats actually come out against freedom in actual words – although every action they take is to limit dangerous things like personal liberty.
We all know from his failed Presidential campaign that John Kerry is an elitist snob who tends to marry money (big fracking gobs of it), so he is obviously much more qualified than any American family to spend their money wisely. After all, he got elected Senator didn’t he? Doesn’t that confer upon him Olympian powers of wisdom?
* John Kerry may or may not have been in Cambodia, but he did serve in Vietnam before throwing some kind of medals over the fence of the White House.
