North Carolina Pretty Much Just Selling Poor People For Dog Food Now

News

Arizona and Texas need to step up their game, because North Carolina is going balls to the wall to be the most batshit crazy state. In the duel categories of “Moneylingus for the Rich” and “Dicking Over the Poors,” North Carolina is about to take a commanding lead. And, in order to get bonus points, they are doing it with minimal time for debate, lest all the little people try to have their so-called “voices” heard. According to ThinkProgress:


North Carolina lawmakers rammed through massive tax reforms on Tuesday that would disproportionately benefit higher-income earners, bringing the measure to a vote in the House after approximately 25 minutes of debate. The legislative compromise, which was formally unveiled on Monday, represents some of the biggest most regressive changes to North Carolina’s tax code in eight decades. The Senate will take up the measure on Tuesday afternoon, both chambers will hold final votes Wednesday, and Gov. Pat McCrory (R) is expected to sign it by the end of the week.

If you are going bring about the most massive change in a state’s tax code in 80 years, why would you need more than 25 minutes to debate it? Does it benefit the rich to the detriment of the poor? Yes? Nuff said. Find a motorcycle bill to attach it to, and let’s move on, there’s plenty of other people just aching to be screwed.  

So how does this bill fuck the poor, exactly? This helpful chart shows how the new taxes make those making $12,000 pay MORE while those making $940,000 pay LESS.

Hahaha, making $12,000 is living the life of luxury anyway. You can afford to cough up a little more to the gubmint -- just quit going to the doctor every time your kid whines about "leukemia," k?

So what is the net effect of this tax scheme? Surely it will place North Carolina on firmer fiscal footing, because we all know that the GOP is the party of fiscal responsibility, or at least that’s what they yell all the time when they want to get their way because it is also the party of whiny crybabies and not at all hypocrites, no siree.

As a result, revenue would fall by $500 million in two years and $2 billion over five years…

What the fuck, really? The GOP is willing to create a $2 billion revenue shortfall just to make sure that rick motherfuckers can keep more of their tobacco money? Seriously? Surely there is a plan to make up for this shortfall, right? That above sentence concludes:

…laying the groundwork for additional cuts to government spending.

So the poor people, who will be paying MORE in taxes will soon receive LESS government services? Hahahahahahaha *sob*

Dear Wonketeers, this is what political-types call the “starve the beast” philosophy to governing. You create a massive debt through tax cuts (and possibly multiple foreign wars if you are the federal government), then look around and scream your head off about said massive debt and demand that the government spend less on things that you never liked in the first place (poor people), because you blew the government wad on things that you do like (rich people and war). So the rich get richer, and wars get FUCKIN' GNARLY HOORAH.

It’s a winner winner chicken dinner. For the rich. Who are now the only ones who can afford a fucking chicken dinner.

Corey Stewart, the Minnesota transplant to Virginia who's made protecting "Confederate Heritage" a top issue in his campaign for the US Senate, accused a nosy New York Times reporter of breaking into the apartment of one of his aides. It's a terrific accusation, because while there's no evidence at all and the story makes no damn sense, that doesn't matter at all to people who'd vote for Corey Stewart. They already hate the evil media and know those nasty reporters are capable of all the depravity in the world.

Hey, remember that hilarious time when Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy got caught on tape joking that LOL, Donald Trump and Congressman Dana Rohrabacher were totally on Putin's payroll? WaPo got the goods:

"There's two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump," McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016 exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia.House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy's assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy.

It's funny 'cause it's true! ALLEGEDLY. Earlier this month, Congressman Lubyanka Rohrabacher told Fox reporter Elex Michaelson that DNC hack was obviously an inside job.
