BEN SHAPIRO (HOST): I was screaming at the television when he's talking about taxes. Because what he is saying is so obviously asinine. When he says that rich people don't pay their fair share in this country, that is just an abject disgusting lie. It is a lie. The top ten percent of income earners in this country pay all net taxes. Not some of the taxes, all of the net taxes - because net taxes are defined as what you pay into the government, minus what you get back from the government.
Only the people at the top of spectrum are paying net taxes in this country. All of the net taxes in this country.
When he says they're not paying their fair share, the only thing he means by they're not paying their fair share is it should be nearly all of your income goes to the federal government. And when he says things like, I'm not going to tax anybody who's making under $400,000 a year, he is lying to you through his teeth.
When he says I'm going to tax corporations, corporations are not human beings for purposes of taxes. The money that would've been passed on to you via income is being taxed up here. That money is now being withdrawn from the system and taken away from you. Corporations are going to have to raise prices in order to deal with the taxation effect.
JEREMY BOREING (HOST): The people who don't pay their fair share in this country are the poor. We need to raise taxes on the poor. I'm not joking. I'm not joking. The poor in this country pay zero. The lower middle class in this country pay net zero. So we have a group of people who pay no taxes, a group of people who pay no net taxes, a group of people who pay all the net taxes, and his argument is that it's category three who don't pay their fair share. Fair share means your percentage of taxes. We've determined that there are some people who shouldn't pay any percent of taxes. The only fair taxing system is one in which everyone pays.
