This brief fictional exchange took place at a blog called Easy Opinions, titled “Property and Pigs.”
Official: I see that you have a large income. We need more of it.
Mike: I work legally for my income and I pay 35% at the top tax rate. Isn’t that enough?
Official: The economy is bad now. We need to take your money and pay other people. They will spend it and improve the economy.
Mike: Why do you think the economy will improve?
Official: 10 years ago the top rate was 39.6% and the economy was good.
Mike: Those things aren’t related. How would higher tax rates produce a growing economy?
Official: I don’t have time to discuss philosophy with you. You have the money. We want the money.
The pigs part is included in the same post, and titled “How to Catch Wild Pigs.” Don’t miss it.
