During a Sunday Fox News town hall, South Bend, Illinois, mayor and Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg didn’t bother sugarcoating his call for “fair taxes” as anything other than what his party means by it: “higher taxes.” When asked by an attendee about what he would do to “restore fiscal responsibility” in light of the $22 trillion national debt, Buttigieg started off attacking President Trump’s tax cuts as “unnecessary and unaffordable.” He argued: “That’s why we really do need to entertain ideas like, I would say a fairer-which means higher-marginal income tax rate on those with the most.” The answer for Leftists is always confiscatory tax policies…for other people’s money, that is.
