AND IT AIN’T THE constantly shifting, move-the-goalposts, tilt-the-playing-field-in-favor-of-special-interests definition the Democrats use.
It’s the Fourteenth Amendment, which reads, in relevant part:
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Equal. Protection. Of the. Laws.
Now, as they always do, the Left will nitpick and pettifog, but the plain fact is that their tax prescriptions START OUT violating that principle. If you say, “Tax the rich, not the poor,” somebody’s not gonna be payin’ their fair share, and it ain’t the rich.
And then, we get to the actual practice of the tax regime as she is played.
The only thing missing is to map the actual dollar amounts to the percentiles.
