Patriotism

18Sep08

Biden’s idea of patriotism is higher taxes. Sadly, I think alot of people buy into this.

Joe Biden often says on the campaign trail that wealthy Americans who’ll have more taxes to pay under an Obama-Biden administration should pony up out of a sense of patriotism.

He’s been talking this trash for a while, but it’s just gotten noticed.

As early as September 3rd, the Delaware Senator asked a voter to tell folks making over $250,000 a year, “it’s time to be patriotic.” Those remarks made the blogs, but largely went under the radar.

Biden repeated the argument on ABC News this morning, telling Kate Snow “It’s time to be patriotic, Kate. Time to jump in. Time to be part of the deal. Time to help get America out of the rut. And the way to do that is, they’re still going to pay less taxes than they did under Reagan.”

Funny, I checked with Josh Howard to get his thoughts on patriotism, and he didn’t mention higher taxes.
