Iowa GOP Senator Charles Grassley defends the new tax plan:
I think not having the estate tax recognizes the people that are investing — as opposed to those that are just spending every darn penny they have, whether it’s on booze or women or movies.
Wow. Twitter went wild:
You forgot those that are “spending every darn penny” on raising their kids and giving them a decent education.
This is the GOP belief system; They believe that anyone who works hard and plays by the rules should be wealthy, and those that do not achieve wealth are lazy, alcoholics and drug addicts.
He’s a pleasant man, isn’t he? I spend every penny I make and it sure isn’t on women, booze or movies. Fun stuff like electricity, house payment, insurance, etc. etc. What the hell? I guess the rich don’t drink, date or go to movies? That must be how they got rich! Wow!
Someone’s been in congress too long.
