Ousted Rep Alan Grayson: Five things the rich can do with their tax cuts (video)

Might as well play the class envy game on the way out from losing his election

The Huffington Post reports Alan Grayson (D-Florida) wants everyone to know that he is not in favor of extending the Bush cuts for the wealthy, which would average out to about $83,347 a year for each person in the top 1 percent of the U.S. income bracket. To drive his point home, he made a list for lawmakers on the House floor Wednesday night of the many ways those "high and mighty" individuals making an average of $1.4 million a year will be able to use that extra cash.

Did you see this bit in the HuffPo piece:

"Grayson pointed out that President Obama's proposed tax cuts for the middle class..."

Obama's tax cuts for the middle class? He isn't cutting anybody's taxes but leaving in the tax rates put in by Bush and the Republicans. These tools can't help but lie for a living.

Proof said...

First: When he says "Extend the President Obama tax cuts", he's lying. Obama is only presiding over tax increases. Not raising your taxes from what they are now is not a "cut".
The "Bush tax cuts" were for the lower and middle class, too, not just the wealthy.
Secondly, couldn't he find any $600 sneakers for the wealthy to buy? Trips to Spain or India? How much to rent the entire Taj Mahal Hotel?

Thank you, soon to be ex-Rep. Alan Grayson for the view from your colon.
