Scott Brown wants to show he cares about the little people more than Elizabeth Warren. That's why he's worried raising taxes on everyone who makes more than $250,000 per year will hurt “teachers, firefighters, policemen, folks who work two jobs.”
I mean, consider the lot of a husband and wife, one a teacher, one a firefighter. The teacher works a summer job. Somehow, that will raise their average income to more than $125,000 each. I have trouble figuring out how that's gonna happen. But if it does, they'll have to pay the higher tax . . .
On every dollar over $250,000. If they make a thousand over that, they might pay as much as $50 extra. And it would be a burden on hard working teachers (whose salary and benefits Brown wants to cut) to have to shoulder that $50 burden -- even if they're pulling in a quarter million.
Keep this up, Scott. Bend yourself into a pretzel, and you'll lose the election on your own.
