<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">It is time to get serious, and it is time to get tough about tax policy in this country. The middle class, coupled with the rich, make this country work. Those two groups working together in unison are what make this country work. Now, what's slowing this country down?

Tell you who it is.

The poor.

The poor and the lower classes of this country have gotten a free ride ever since the Great Depression, when it became noble to be poor. Look at how we treat the homeless, why we celebrate them, why we make romantic figures out of them, why we make movies about them.

We teach them to dine in Dumpsters now because America is so impolite, America doesn't care, America is so rude.

My friends, we have the wealthiest poor in the world. They're the ones who get all the benefits in this country. They're the ones that are always pandered to.

We have been encouraging poverty because they need government. And Democrats love giving money away to the poor, because it creates a need. And, boy, have we created a dependency class, and do they give anything back, do they pay any taxes? No. They don't have to file any income taxes. They don't pay a thing. They contribute nothing to this country. They do nothing but take from it. It is serious. It is time to get serious about raising taxes on the poor.

Now, I know what you're saying. You're saying, "But, Rush, what do we do if we can't collect the money they owe? What if they just can't pay?"

The poor in this country have an average of three television sets in their house. Let's go get two of them. I am sick and tired of playing the one phony game I have had to play, and that is this so-called compassion for the poor. I don't have compassion for the poor, because I think they can do something about it.

What if we all decided to be poor? What if we all said, "I don't want to pay taxes. I'll just be poor, and I'll rely on the Democrats, and I'll derive my happiness by watching the news on my television set that the rich are going to be punished."

Rush earns every cent he gets paid. He is simply the best.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> I am continually surprised and amazed at the power of this microphone. The whole proposal of raising taxes on the poor to balance the budget, in fact the entire diatribe today, blaming the poor and bashing the poor, has all been an April Fool's play. Now, many of you out there are so desperate that you will latch on to things that you don't even understand, and then when somebody tries to explain them to you, you don't want to hear it, if it is going to in any way, shape, manner, or form change the substance of your belief. And I find that to be truly alarming. I didn't say dangerous, and I'm not going to worry about any of this, but I find it fascinating, I find it fascinating how easy it is to pull something like this off. There are some things in it that are absolutely true. There are some points I made that are absolutely right, some things that we've gotta do that are absolutely a must, but do I think the poor should pay more taxes? No. They don't have anything to pay taxes with. Do I think that they are the wealthiest poor in the world? Yeah, but <span style='font-size: 14pt'>that doesn't mean they're well off. And you people who bought it hook, line, and sinker ought to ask yourselves, "What else are you buying that may not be true? What else are you willing to believe?"</span> </div></div>

-- Rush Limbaugh, directly following what you quoted.

Even he does not believe it, and is amazed and amused at how easily punked some people are.

You and llotter, perhaps, among them?
