Rep. Schakowsky was asked the following question on the Don Wade & Roma show on WLS-AM:
“Out of every dollar that I earn, how much do you think that I deserve to keep?”
Here idiotic response was:
I’ll put it this way. You don’t deserve to keep all of it and it’s not a question of deserving because what government is, is those things that we decide to do together. And there are many things that we decide to do together like have our national security. Like have police and fire. What about the people that work at the National Institute of Health who are looking for a cure for cancer.
She was further pushed about how much Schakowsky thinks she should pay in taxes to which she said was willing to pay more. So the obvious was brought up. “Why don’t you pay more?” Jan Schakowsky retorted with the most brilliant and thought-out answer. Are you ready for it?
That’s just ridiculous.
