The Government Is Considering a Financial Weapon of Mass Destruction
By John Klar

*** begin quote ***

In seeking to tax unrealized income from hyper-inflated capital assets, AOC, et al. are launching an aggressive, unconstitutional plan to destroy the national economy while growing government limitlessly.  Given her past pronouncements, she likely understands this travesty even less than she comprehends cow farts.

What is terrifying is not that AOC is calling for insane monetary policy and whole new means of tax takings.  What is terrifying is that almost no one is raising the fiscal alarm.

*** end quote ***

And, like the income tax, that started by impacting the top per cent, it quickly came down on everybody.

There’s no way that such a tax doesn’t destroy the economy’s “seed corn”.

The rich don’t have a basement full of bucks like Scrooge McDuck in their basement.  It’s spent or invested and EVERYONE benefits.

Argh!
