Class warfare: Fiscal cliff bill tells successful ‘You shouldn’t have built that’

Welcome to 2013: Class warfare is now the legitimized.

As Twitchy reported, the House passed the crapwich known as the fiscal cliff bill late last night. The trainwreck of a bill raises taxes, while doing next to nothing to cut spending.

But, whatever! Stick to those Richy Riches who need to pay their “fair share,” huh, President Obama?

Sometimes, you’ve just made enough money and all. Small businesses didn’t “build that.” And the successful? You shouldn’t have built that. Class warfare is now acceptable according to Democrats and spineless Republicans.

Those who don’t seek to punish the successful and the  job creators are rightfully outraged.

Bingo. But, hey, poor little rich boy Obama isn’t done punishing yet.

He’s making plans. During his $4 million tax-payer funded vacation.

As for the capitulating, spineless Republicans?

Yep. Helpful tip, GOP: Americans won’t forget.

    Is there any wonder why we Libs always win? Our opposition sucks!

    The only good thing Donald Trump said during the election was that:

    The GOP Needs to get tough.

    So true. So weak.

    • leftinbrooklyn

      That’s the real problem— too many delusional Libs believing this was a win.

    The State puts sin-taxes on things to discourage people from “undesirable” behaviours. Alcohol, smokes, etc… sin-taxes are allegedly a price signal to let people know we want them to stop that chit, and we’re gonna make it painful as hell for them until they do.

    Now they’ve enacted sin-taxes on being successful.

    When the logical fall-out occurs, they can hardly call it “unforeseen consequences”.

      I’ve already shut down my business because of what I felt was coming.

      Yeah…I’m not going to work on running a successful business anymore…you’ve hit it on the head, spot. The value received for the value given isn’t there anymore.

      The Law of Unintended Consequences always is in play.

      • EEKman

        If you shut down a business making a half a million dollars or more a year because your taxes on income over $400,000 went up by 5 points then your business probably wasn’t “successful” in the first place.

        • Just Another Guy

          Actually, it was very successful. And the employees I let go are going to be fine…all but the Obama voter who didn’t get a letter of recommendation from me.

          But I am at a point in my life where I didn’t need the B.S. that was coming down the road. I did it as much I decided to “go Galt” as anything. And not wanting to contribute to the nonsense anymore. I’m set for the foreseeable future….are you?

          I didn’t need all the new regulations. And the ones we still don’t have but are coming down on high.

          So it is apparent you have no freakin’ clue about business and the decisions that people make about continuing a business. But that’s not surprising. Head on back to the park with the other Occupy losers.

          You won’t be getting a dime from me through taxation on that anymore. And I’ll be minimizing what I pay from my salary as a college prof.
          Bet you didn’t know you can donate a bunch of stuff and put a bunch of money into tax-reduced/free investments and still do just fine.

          Yeah…I knew you didn’t.

      So lots of headlines in the coming months along the lines of: “First-Time Jobless Rates Climbs… UNEXPECTEDLY!”

        “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

  • Kate

    They completely dropped the ball on this one. Never steered the conversation towards spending cuts. Let Obama & Co. direct the conversation the entire time.

    If they were going to allow Obama to screw over the country, they could have at least voted “present” or “no” and let the Left own this mess. Now the country will probably have another recession, and guess who will get blamed?

    • mdtljt

      …no doubt about it, we are STILL on the Recession Railroad and roaring into Depression Depot….thanks a lot, elected jackholes…count on a huge lack of support during the next election cycle…

  • steveegg

    The GOP made their play for the Occupy votes. Congrats on losing the House next year and the Presidential nominee getting maybe 35% in 2016.

  • TocksNedlog

    “You shouldn’t have bothered to build that!”

  • CR

    Here’s hoping they don’t see one single dime in extra revenue and that the revenue actually goes down as a result! I think they forget that the wealthy aren’t stupid. There are ALWAYS ways to shelter more money, especially at that income level, and I sincerely hope that no one w/ an income of $450K or higher is going to roll over and give the money grabbers what they want.

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Oh, it very likely will. And that will give the haters even more ammunition to call down vengeance on the heads of those “unpatriotic” citizens trying to keep too much of their own money. It’s win/win for them, because even if revenues increase they can say “See! They’re paying their fair share now!” , regardless of the fact that even at best-case it’s not enough to be significant against the deficit.

  • Lady 12

    You know, Sarah Palin might not be quite ideal for a presidential candidate, but some Republicans are going to push her as a candidate in 2016 simply because she has guts! What happened to GOP leadership?

    • Zanshi

      It resigned with Newt Gingrich.

    A union boss walks into a bar next door to the factory and is about to order a drink to celebrate Obama’s victory when he sees a guy close by wearing a Romney for President button and two beers in front of him. He doesn’t have to be an Einstein to know that this guy is a Republican. So, he shouts over to the bartender so loudly that everyone can hear, “Drinks for everyone in here, bartender, but not for the Republican.”

    Soon after the drinks have been handed out, the Republican gives him a big smile, waves at him, then says, “Thank you!” in an equally loud voice. This infuriates the union boss.

    So the union boss once again loudly orders drinks for everyone except the Republican. As before, this does not seem to bother the Republican. He continues to smile, and again yells, “Thank you!”

    So just to make his point one more time, the union boss once again loudly orders drinks for everyone except the Republican. But, as before, this does not seem to bother the Republican. He continues to smile, and again yells, “Thank you!”

    Frustrated, the union boss asks the bartender, “What the hell is the matter with that Republican? I’ve ordered three rounds of drinks for everyone in the bar but him, and all the silly ass does is smile and thank me. Is he nuts?”

    “Nope,” replies the bartender. “He owns the place.”

      Then the union thugs say “nice bar, shame if something were to happen to it….” is how it would happen in the real world.

      • Just Another Guy

        Only too true. Unions, in their original incarnation, were one of the best things to happen for people. In their current incarnation, one of the worst.

  • BeeKaaay

    And of course, class warfare is nice, so the RINOpublican party goes along with it. That party truly have been taken over by Marxists.

  • Tsnyder

    “There isn’t a dime’s worth of difference between the Republicans and the Democrats.” George Wallace told us this in the 60s. Nobody who has been paying attention for the last 20-40 years should be the least bit surprised by any of this. What passes for today’s conservative Republican was a liberal Democrat 40 years ago. JFK would be considered a right wing wacko today. The whole thing has collectively shifted to the Left. Obama is simply playing the final trump card… this game is over folks. Seriously…

    • BeeKaaay

      We have a one party system.

      I’m going to miss this country.
