Sen. Coburn from Oklahoma (R) has been beating this drum for a while – being one of the first Republicans to stand up against the 1% agenda that has destroyed America.
Now he’s going after billionaire’s theft of middle class tax money.
From his latest report:
“From tax write-offs for gambling losses, vacation homes and luxury yachts to subsidies for their ranches and estates, the government is subsidizing the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Multimillionaires are even receiving government checks for not working,” Coburn said in a statement Monday.
[..] “This welfare for the well-off — costing billions of dollars a year — is being paid for with the taxes of the less fortunate, many who are working two jobs just to make ends meet, and IOUs to be paid off by future generations. We should never demonize those who are successful. Nor should we pamper them with unnecessary welfare to create an appearance everyone is benefiting from federal programs,” Coburn said.
Note – this is a conservative position.
