Fred Thompson: "Democrats Say the Most Stupid Things to Justify What They are Doing" - Video 4/15/10
Here is video of former Sen. Fred Thompson on with Sean Hannity tonight where he said higher taxes are inevitable to go along with President Obama's European-style social welfare system.
Thompson said "Democrats say the most stupid things to justify what they are doing." He was reacting to the way Democrats minimize the tax burden Americans are under.
"We are changing the face of America," Thompson said, with the European-style tax system that is coming to pay for what Obama is doing. In particular, Thompson said the "Value Added Tax" is likely on the way. In Europe, the VAT tax winds up being about double where it begins.
Thompson said Americans won't put up with what the Democrats and Obama are doing:
"The sheep might stand pretty still while he's being shorn, but when you start butchering him, he's going to kick up a fuss."
