From the New York Post:

From the right: Dem Rhetoric on Tax Law Is Just Silly

Steven Greenhut at Reason cites a businessman acquaintance who says well-off folks like him can afford their lifestyle. So “when the government taxes them at a higher rate, that simply means they have less money to expand their business. It won’t force them to subsist on macaroni and cheese.” That’s what Democrats fail to understand: “The left wants to punish the rich, but defending higher taxes mainly punishes everyone else.” Says Greenhut: “The bill pushes in a lower-tax direction and rebukes the Democratic class-war nonsense. Who really cares how rich people spend their own money? We should all be more concerned about encouraging them to invest in their businesses.”
