EconomicPolicyJournal.com: Mike Bloomberg Admits He is a Tax Nazi: Taxing the Poor for Their Own Good is a Good Thing

Posted by M. C. on November 29, 2019

Mike Bloomberg took to the stage and claimed that taxing the poor to change their habits was a good thing.

“When we raise taxes on the poor, it’s good because then the poor will live longer because they can’t afford as many things that kill them.”

During the Spring 2018 International Monetary Fund meetings in Washington D.C., current Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg took to the stage and claimed that taxing the poor to change their habits was a good thing.

Congressman Thomas Massie writes:

My translation of what Bloomberg said: “Taxes aren’t just for revenue. Taxes are a means of control. So we’ve got to tax poor people in order to control them. We do this to help them.”

Below is the remarkable Bloomberg statement:

Other presidential candidates may want to control our lives but they are incompetent. Bloomberg is not incompetent and appears to have a very dogmatic streak in him where he believes he knows what is good for everyone. Further, he is willing to use his technocratic skills to structure society so that the people in it will move in the manner he wants them to move.

He is a very scary guy.
