That’s Right Nate

Thoughts from a right thinker.

Save The Rich

with 5 comments

Unfortunately, the American economy is in sorry shape.   We can spend from here until Larry King’s next divorce arguing over who is responsible, but that’s really not going to get us anywhere.  The important thing is we’re in a mess and as we sputter along, we need to prioritize because unfortunately we can’t save everybody.

Think of how it works when several patients need a kidney transplant.  The hospital will screen through 4 or 5 patients in order to find not the sickest patient, but the healthiest patient.   The hospital feels that it’s important that they not waste a kidney on somebody who may die anyway, when it could save somebody else’s life.  Our economy must work the same way.

If you figure we have a choice between funding unemployment benefits and cutting taxes on the wealthy, we must cut taxes to save the rich.   They are the ones who are most likely to survive the current  recession.  If we extend unemployment benefits for the poor, they will simply use it to buy food or shelter.  As Americans, we must be wiser.

That is why, this blog is endorsing the current Republican economic policies as voiced by Marco Rubio and others.   Do not let the Bush tax cuts expire.  In fact, cut the top tax rate.  It may not help the economy, but it’ll get the rich through the crisis and at least that’s somebody.

  2. I think you have typo there Nate. You said “Do not let the Bush tax cuts inspire.” Of course the Bush (W of course) tax cuts are one of the most inspiring things in the country’s history. I am sure you meant Do not the Bush tax cuts expire.

  3. I think you failed to mention how patriotic the rich are. Poor people have limited options and couldn’t leave the country even if they wanted to. Rich people could easily move to another country so when they stay they demonstrate a high level of patriotism just by being here.

    Consider Rush Limbaugh. He left NYC due to high taxes and moved to Florida. He could just as easily have moved to the Dominican Republic, a country he loves to visit. Besides that I think he really likes NYC but he feels the need to teach them (tough love) that if you put taxes on rich people they’ll just leave. We can be very thankful that he didn’t feel the need to teach the whole country, just NYC.

  4. Helping the rich IS helping the poor. Let’s not forget the wildly successful “trickle down” economics of the Reagan years (Bless that man!). We should abandon the poor and go with what works. It’s not like they haven’t starved before.

  5. Maruda and Wrecks, you two make me so proud to be an American–and one who chooses to remain in this country.
