The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur on Tuesday slammed Erick Erickson, founder of RedState.org, for the “We are the 53 percent” website he helped create.
The “53 percent” is a reference to the 53 percent of Americans who pay federal income taxes. The other 46 percent don’t pay federal income taxes because their incomes are too low or because of tax breaks, but still pay other taxes.
Targeting the “Occupy Wall Street” movement, the Tumblr site says it is for “those of us who pay for those of you who whine.”
“Suck it up you whiners,” Erickson wrote at the site. “I am the 53 percent subsidizing you so you can hang out on Wall Street and complain.”
