The weekly Marx award has a back log of awardees. I may have to make the award more frequently.
This week’s award goes to Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., who recently called for a 90% marginal tax rate. A 100% rate is akin to slavery–all of a successful individual’s earnings goes to the “master.” In this case, the federal government would be the “slave master” instead of plantation owner.
In short, we have come full circle. From slavery to abolishing slavery to a call for all intents and purposes to virtual “tax slavery.”
Robert Wenzel’s commentary about Rep. Omar’s proposal is worth reading.
Congrats to Rep. Omar. Karl Marx is smiling from the depths of hell.
