Top GOP lawmaker says rich paying fair share of taxes will 'hurt working families'


By Josh Israel -June 10, 2021 3:45 PM

Rep. Kevin Brady says a higher capital gains tax rate for the very rich would stop economic growth.

Texas Rep. Kevin Brady, the top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee, claimed Thursday that making the richest Americans pay their fair share in taxes would really just "hurt working people." His argument: If they pay more taxes, they might invest less in the stock market.

Appearing on Fox News Radio, after the release of a report by ProPublica that said the very richest Americans evade income taxes almost entirely, Brady was asked about President Joe Biden's proposal to raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans to pay for his American Families Plan.

Brady said he opposed these and any other tax increases because they would discourage economic growth.

2. Makes as much sense as "trickle down economics".

The greedy, hypocritical assholes sing the same song, decade after decade. I wish I could see into the future when minorities are the majority in another 15 years. I certainly am sick and tired of rich, old, white men having all the power.

4. Except

It's never happened.


Texas Rep. Kevin Brady, the top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee, claimed Thursday that making the richest Americans pay their fair share in taxes would really just "hurt working people." His argument: If they pay more taxes, they might invest less in the stock market.

How does that hurt working people? Something like 90% of stocks are owned by the top 10% of high-income taxpayers.

Well, maybe your cult members will, but the majority of us who know better aren't buying it.

Stuff it up your Trump hole you creepy little freak show.
