Now This Is Embarrassing (For Willard)
These are also all states where Republicans control the state governments. If the Republican's policies are so good for America, why is it that the states they are in charge of have the highest percentage of workers who don't earn enough money to pay income taxes? Could it be that their policies only benefit the rich?
The Republicans, including Willard, want you to think these Americans don't pay income taxes because they are too lazy to work. That's an outrageous lie! Most of those people are either elderly and living on a small fixed income, or they are the working poor (who work hard at full-time jobs, but get paid so little they can barely afford to live). I would venture to say that every one of those people would absolutely love to have an income large enough to force them to pay income taxes.
Personally, I would like to see Willard try to live on the small income of any one of that 47% of Americans.
P.S. -- Now might be a good time to release those tax returns you are hiding. I think Americans would like to know that you are not among that 47% -- not because you don't earn enough, but because you probably use every trick in the book to avoid paying the taxes you owe.
