The endgame of the Democrats' taxing philosophy is going to be expanded government spending on workers and non-profit contracts.
While I am happy that these people are working, in truth they can only be support services for the kind of economy we want to build.
I create various kinds of media, new and old. My buyers are people who have experienced a leap in income that they have not committed to something else like their house or car. These are people who want to impress and are looking for the finest, it is important for their products to be produced with thought, with attention to detail, and be significant to their own culture. What I make is not so different from any other high-end business, such as somebody raising grass-fed beef which costs more.
If we expect our economy to grow beyond competing with low-cost producers, we need to have buyers who can support it, buyers who have a leap in income.
The problem with the Democrats' approach is that they will take from my buyers, the buyers who will pay a premium, and after wasting some of it through heat loss, will spread it out to people who never see a rapid growth in their income for the entire time they are employed. Inevitably these people will buy goods with price being a primary component of their decision, not quality.
And if a government worker has $1000 extra you know something is wrong.
Government and non-profit workers can never support a premium-priced economy, and that's the kind of economy we want.
