Speakers at the Democrat National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina are explaining to the American voters that it’s their patriotic duty to raise taxes on the rich.
Politico reports that, “just over an hour into the official proceedings of the Democratic National Convention, Newark Mayor Cory Booker had the crowd on its feet introducing the party platform.”
Democrats were hoping and hollering over Booker’s assertions that Democrats have a so-called patriotic obligation to raise taxes on wealthy Americans.
According to Politico, “he jabbed at Republicans’ assertions that Democrats, including President Barack Obama, are waging class warfare by asking wealthier Americans to pay higher taxes. Booker said that after two expensive wars abroad and debt crisis at home, ‘being asked to pay your fair share isn’t class warfare, it’s patriotism.”
