Obama’s Tax Plan

The pain isn’t just for corporate fat cats. Apparently, plumbers are the new rich, who need to pay more taxes to “spread the wealth around”.

Not doctors, lawyers, businessmen, professional athletes, or big time actors.

Plumbers.

Now, a good plumber can make a good living. But let’s not confuse them with Leo DiCaprio.

But, sad to say, in the end, it’s the plumbers and small businessmen that find their lives ruined by these sort of redistributionist schemes. Big time corporate executives, actors, athletes, and politicians – in short, friends of Obama – will have the resources and tax planners to find the loopholes and protect themselves.

As for the rest of us? Well, remember that some animals are more equal than others.
