Texas Rep Goes Scorched Earth On Dems Tax Obsession
On Tuesday, Rep. Dan Crenshaw from Texas outlined the intended role of our federal government and nailed the Left for their obsession with high taxes so “benevolent bureaucrats” can grow government and impose more unnecessary social programs on the public.
In a video posted by the freshman rep, Crenshaw elaborated on the philosophical divide between the Left and Right.
“We’re talking about a difference in philosophy. We’re not just talking about tax rates,” started in Crenshaw. “It’s a question of whether the government should be taking more of your money of whether you should keep more of your money. It’s the difference in the role of government, in what we believe. It seems to me that what you all believe is that the role of government is to tax the people as much as possibleso you and your benevolent fellow academics can dream up more programs for the government to spend money on. I don’t believe that. I don’t believe that is what the role of government is for.”
He continued: “The role of government is to protect God-given rights that we have and to ensure that we live as free as possible. The role of government is to tax people to the least extent possible, while still taxing them enough to cover basic needs for government. And if we’re questioning what those needs are we can just look at our Constitution, they’re generally pretty clear there.”
As reported by The Daily Wire’s James Barrett in February of last year, Republican tax cuts have significantly boosted the economy: “If first quarter tax revenues are any indication, Trumponomics is operating much like Reaganomics and producing the same kind of results: lower taxes and deregulation resulting in more economic growth and, thus, more tax revenues.” Barrett also noted that “tax revenues actually increased by $18 billion (5.2%) over the previous year, resulting in the government running a $51-billion surplus” in the first quarter after Republicans passed tax reform.”
