The Elizabeth Warren Quote Every American Needs To See

..............

Quote:
Every now and then, someone comes along and says something that makes everything clear. Elizabeth Warren just did that, and the world is taking notice.

Since we posted her quote on Facebook, it's been shared over 140,000 times?because it's hitting folks across America just like it hit us. As Tea Party politicians make disingenuous excuses from the right-wing about why the super-rich can't pay their fair share, Elizabeth Warren sets the record straight.

Police and fire protection is paid for by property taxes, goods are transported by trucks with license plates and workers are educated just like the rest of us. This lady is way out in "left" field with her quote, think about it!

In my area, police and fire are funded in part by income taxes.

and the roads and bridges they drive on are completely and totally funded by license plate and/or usage fees, right? Wrong. Income taxes.

Exactly. It was paid for by property and income taxes. You're welcome.

The further you are to the right, the further "left" the center looks.

Like I said the lady is way out in left field. Unless a business is given a sweetheart deal it pays property taxes.

Like I said, the further out you are on the right, the further left the center looks. All of the things she mentioned are paid for, in part, through income taxes.

I can see how someone on the extreme right would think that. Because she correctly identified several of the relationships between private enterprise and public works, she's educated. Because she suggests that public works are good for private enterprise, she's a communist. Because her conclusions differ from those of the delusional right, she's filthy and an idiot.

Makes perfect sense.

"Whether", not "Weather". Education FTW.
