New York City, where the anti-coastal elite man of the people Rush Limbaugh has lived since basically forever, has raised his (and others’) taxes, and Limbaugh has this to say about the situation:
“Folks, it’s axiomatic: when you raise taxes on an activity, you reduce that activity. People start doing that activity less. In this case: working,” Limbaugh said on his show earlier this week.
Bring out the elephants and the baton twirlers! Could it be that Limbaugh is actually going to shut the fuck up already? If so, then the axiomatic lesson is clear—we need to raise the taxes on the super-wealthy until they quit working as right wing talk show hosts, economy-destroying investment bankers, and being Dick Cheney. Unfortunately, like every one of these fuckers, Limbaugh is a lying sack of shit who doesn’t even care that his refusal to quit working actually disproves his cherished notion. Alas, Limbaugh is just moving to Florida, which you could say is just a micro-version of the way corporations are outsourcing. Except then you’d still be wrong, because they do that for cheap labor, not because of taxes.
So far, there’s no proof whatsoever that anyone has quit making money because they hate paying taxes that much.
