Congressman Thomas Massie writes:
My translation of what Bloomberg said: “Taxes aren’t just for revenue. Taxes are a means of control. So we’ve got to tax poor people in order to control them. We do this to help them.”Below is the remarkable Bloomberg statement:
Other presidential candidates may want to control our lives but they are incompetent. Bloomberg is not incompetent and appears to have a very dogmatic streak in him where he believes he knows what is good for everyone. Further, he is willing to use his technocratic skills to structure society so that the people in it will move in the manner he wants them to move.“When we raise taxes on the poor, it’s good because then the poor will live longer because they can’t afford as many things that kill them.”— Rob O'Donnell (@odonnell_r) November 28, 2019
