What Zerobama understands is that raising the tax rate for those that have higher income is that any additional taxes paid will come from their customers. That will allow easing taxes on the “middle” incomers and will put the blame for increased prices on businesses.
What he doesn’t understand is that transferring money from the private sector to government is a loosing proposition and unemployment will most likely increase as a result.
WAIT A MINUTE! Maybe his plan is to increase dependency so the government can send help.
