On Tuesday, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) took time out from his busy schedule to school the Left on their obsession with high taxes.
After schooling them on the floor of the House, he took his lecture to Twitter where he said, "Why does the left hate the tax cuts? Bc they think the people exist to fund the govt. We believe the govt exists to protect the inalienable rights of the people. When people keep their money, we get more jobs & wage growth, & less wasteful spending by “benevolent” bureaucrats."
Here is the full text of his comments.
“We’re talking about a difference in philosophy. We’re not just talking about tax rate. 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 possible so 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.”
