Recently she talked about how taxpayer funded services benefit American businessmen:
"There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own -- nobody."
So all that hard work you put in running your company means nothing because really you didn't do a damn thing, your employees did. Well of course your employees worked but why does your contribution mean nothing because you own it? If you're an owner/manager and you hire people to work out in the field, in the warehouse or in the office and your company makes money, while you make the management decisions, still you are not responsible for that. Her implication here is that American businesses are bad.
"You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory -- and hire someone to protect against this -- because of the work the rest of us did. Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea. God bless -- keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is, you take a hunk of that and pay
forward for the next kid who comes along."
I don't even know what to say to this. What? American businesses don't pay taxes? The inviduals who own them don't pay taxes? Remember 99.7% of American businesses are small businesses, I posted that the other day. So thank you Elizabeth Warren for managing to insult 99.7% of the businesses in this country. Excuse me while I hurl. She probably also believes profit is a bad thing too. She's probably also in favor of welfare redistribution, income caps, and the rest of that crap.
BTW, can you guess in what state she's running for Senate? Don't look it up....just guess. I bet you'll get it right the first try.
