John Boehner: We should raise taxes

Email Print

Well, he calls it “closing loopholes” but it’s exactly the same thing. He also, rather unconvincingly, claims he wants to lower tax rates. Of course, anyone who actually wants smaller government would want to lower tax rates while leaving loopholes in place, or even expanding them. The whole idea behind closing loopholes is to increase revenue for the government, which of course, the GOP wants to do so it can build more drones and invade more countries and keep shoveling cash to social security recipients (aka, welfare recipients).
