A 63-year-old attorney based in Lafayette, La., who asked not to be named, told ABCNews.com that she plans to cut back on her business to get her annual income under the quarter million mark should the Obama tax plan be passed by Congress and become law.
“We are going to try to figure out how to make our income $249,999.00,” she said.
“We have to find a way out where we can make just what we need to just under the line so we can benefit from Obama’s tax plan,” she added. “Why kill yourself working if you’re going to give it all away to people who aren’t working as hard?”
A writer at the Washington Monthly writes about that sort of thinking in a story he calls Rich Morons Decreasing Own Income. He goes on and on about how these people and the news reports about them are dumb.
Well, maybe the people already getting ripped off don’t like the idea of getting ripped off more. They didn’t get rich by giving all of their hard-earned money to other people, and they won’t stay that way if they start.
