Charlie Sykes Calls Americans Who Earn Less Than $50k “Mooches”

Posted by politicalpartypooper on April 8, 2010

I was listening to the Charlie Sykes Show this morning on my way back from Appleton.  This would have been between, oh, 9:45 AM and 10:30 AM or so.  Charlie was griping about the 47% of Americans who paid no taxes last year, and if you know Charlie, you can, of course, understand that the more worked up he got about the issue, the more whiny he sounded.

During one segment of his show, he began taking calls, and the general theme was “Those damned losers aren’t paying any taxes!”  Charlie recited something about a family of four that makes less than $50k not paying taxes, and then jumps into calls, at moments calling people like that mooches, feeders at the Public Trough, and parasites. He then began complaining that America punishes the risk takers, while coddling the low-income earners.

According to Charlie Sykes and his callers, the only people in America who are hard workers are those earning enough to pay taxes.

And if you happen to whine for a living on national air waves, that makes you an expert about hard work, right  Charlie?

Atta Boy Charlie!

    47% aren’t having to pay due to the Bush tax cuts…for the rich!!
    He lowered the middle class rates too, but of course the left refuses
    to acknowledge that.

    Tax cuts enacted in the past decade have been generous to wealthy taxpayers, too, making them a target for President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress. Less noticed were tax cuts for low- and middle-income families, which were expanded when Obama signed the massive economic recovery package last year.

    The result is a tax system that exempts almost half the country from paying for programs that benefit everyone, including national defense, public safety, infrastructure and education. It is a system in which the top 10 percent of earners — households making an average of $366,400 in 2006 — paid about 73 percent of the income taxes collected by the federal government.

    The bottom 40 percent, on average, make a profit from the federal income tax, meaning they get more money in tax credits than they would otherwise owe in taxes. For those people, the government sends them a payment.

    Wow, had to come here and check your site for myself… I guess you really are as ignorant as your posts on Charlie’s blog… Please never pretend that you are not an uber liberal again…

      Something I said, Bill?

      You don’t like it when people call Charlie out for the hack liar he is?

      If you want to talk about “ignorant”, try and come here with an original idea. Reciting talking points that you read on Drudge or heard from Beck or Limbaugh don’t survive long here.

      Otherwise, when you use the word “ignorant”, look in the mirror, junior.

        It is funny, isn’t it? My daughter wants to be a psychologist. She said it’s really weird how the psychology of supporting a particular political creed affects people. She said it’s as total in many cases as a religion.

        Now THAT’S funny.
