Not A Joke — Far-Left State Set to Implement New Tax On RAIN (Details)

Time to move!

Being a Republican in a liberal state can’t be easy.

Conservatives of New Jersey would probably agree.

The far-left blue state is now gearing up to implement a new tax…on the rain.

New Jersey residents could soon see their hard-earned dollars go down the drain if Democrat Gov. Phil Murphy decides to sign recently passed legislation from New Jersey’s legislature allowing for a “rain tax.”

The legislation, Senate Bill S-1073, which the New Jersey Assembly and Senate approved, would allow local governments to create water utilities that would give them the power to tax homeowners and business owners with large paved surfaces.

When it rains, the rainwater mixes with pollutants and seeps into municipal sewage systems. The money collected would replace or repair sewage pipes or create “green infrastructure,” such as rain gardens that would collect polluted water.

Speaking of liberal states…

Californians got exactly what they asked for when they elected Gavin Newsom to replace Jerry Brown as governor.

No surprises, whatsoever.

For example, a new tax on water is headed the Golden State’s way.

From SF Gate:

In order to help disadvantaged communities obtain safe and affordable drinking water, California Governor Gavin Newsom is proposing a new statewide water tax.

In the newly-released 2019-20 budget, Newsom calls for the creation of a “safe and affordable drinking water fund” that would “enable the State Water Resources Control Board to assist communities, particularly disadvantaged communities, in paying for the short-term and long-term costs of obtaining access to safe and affordable drinking water.”

If there’s one certainty outside of death and taxes, it’s that the federal government will waste taxpayer dollars.

It’s a given.

For example…

From Washington Examiner:

The Nation of Islam and its leaders have received hundreds of thousands of dollars from the U.S. government since 2008 to teach religious study programs for federal prison inmates, according to records reviewed by the Washington Examiner.

America now recognizes a new leader in Venezuela.

Citizens of the impoverished nation finally grew tired of Socialist Nicolas Maduro’s ways and decided to push him out of office.

Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) seems to not understand the harsh realities of socialism, calling for higher taxes on American citizens.

President Trump won’t have it.

Trump: “We’re looking at Venezuela, it’s a very sad situation. That was the richest state in all of that area. That’s a big, beautiful area and by far the richest. And now it’s one of the poorest places in the world.

Trump: “That’s what socialism gets you when they want to raise your taxes to 70%. I’ve been watching our opponents, our future opponents talking about 70%. Number one, they can’t do it for 70%. It’s got to probably be twice that number.

Trump: “But, maybe more importantly, what happens is you really have to study and take a look at what has happened to Venezuela. Is a very sad situation. We have our eye very closely on Venezuela.

VIDEO: Conservatives Form Their Own ‘Squad’ To Do Battle Against Socialism; ‘This Is Not Your Grandfather’s GOP Anymore’

Published

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard all about a group of four freshmen Democratic Party women who have banded together in Congress to fight for socialistic policies. This group of individuals has been labeled the “Squad” and features Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib. Well, four female conservative congressional candidates are forming their own version of the “Squad” to help fight against the socialism these other ladies are doing their best to push on the American people. Here’s more on this from Fox News: In a previous interview on “Fox & Friends,” Alabama congressional candidate Jessica Taylor called for a new generation of conservatives to counteract the ideology of Democratic socialists like Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. Then, in a campaign video for her candidacy, Taylor said that she was “sick of arrogant socialists like AOC (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez), who’ve never even run a lemonade stand, trying to tell us how to live in Alabama and that more government is the answer.” On Thursday, Taylor joined “Fox & Friends” once again with a newly formed “conservative squad,” made up of Minnesota congressional candidate Michelle Fischbach, South Carolina congressional candidate Nancy Mace, and Texas congressional candidate Beth Van Duyne. “This is about bringing the conservative message to the people of the United States,” said Fischbach. “So that people understand that we’re looking at do-nothing Democrats. They are obsessing about impeachment and not really doing anything for the people of the United States anymore.” Mace went on to say that their initiative is all about the American dream. “The Democrats, they have taken a sharp left turn under the influence of the socialist squad. And, you look at us and this is socialism versus the American values of freedom and job creation. And, we all understand…

Nonpartisan Analysis Weighs In On Elizabeth Warren’s Wealth Tax Math, Says It Doesn’t Add Up

Published

on

An academic, nonpartisan study has concluded that the math behind Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s wealth tax and found that something’s a bit off about the numbers. According to the new findings, the “wealth tax” on America’s wealthiest folks will actually bring in $1 trillion less than what Warren estimates. Warren says the wealth tax would be a big help in funding her massive progressive policies such as the universal child care, free tuition at public universities, and the big one, “Medicare-for-all” and other programs. The plan would put a two percent tax on individuals worth $50 million or more and a six percent tax on those worth more than $1 billion. Here’s more from Fox News: A University of Pennsylvania Penn Wharton Budget Model – which offers nonpartisan analysis of public policy proposals – estimates, though, that Warren’s tax would raise between $2.3 trillion to $2.7 trillion over a decade. That’s as much as $1.4 trillion less than the Warren campaign’s estimates. The analysis was released on Thursday. It also concludes that the new taxes would cause the economy to contract between 0.9 percent and 2.1 percent by 2050 — depending on how the new revenue is spent. The model says the new tax would reduce “private capital formation” enough to drive the U.S. economy’s average wage down between 0.9 percent and 2.3 percent, even affecting households not rich enough to qualify for the tax. Warren’s campaign disputed the findings. “This analysis does not study Elizabeth’s actual plans — it does not account for the strong anti-evasion measures in her wealth tax and does not even attempt to analyze the specific investments Elizabeth is committed to making with the wealth tax revenue,” Warren campaign spokesperson Saloni Sharma said in a statement to Fox News. “This is an analysis…
