Why we need higher taxes

We need taxes raised across the board. All of this austerity, deficit killing, low taxes, small gov’t and big gov’t is just a pork barrel is just a screen for the wealthy to take a greater share of the pie. Each time everyday people buy into all this bullshit they are shooting themselves in the foot as they lose more social services, create longer line-ups for what is left of them, lose infrastructure etc. Of course all this bull is accompanied by meritocracy rhetoric and we all know that very few of us who work our asses off get to the top and become rich. This whole system is stacked against you from the get go. So think about what you and the rest of society actually gain by higher taxes the next time you are asked to vote for them.
