FOX's Neil Cavuto Attacks Kristen Bell For Saying Rich People Can Afford Higher Taxes

How dare rich people speak out about tax issues that don't fall in line with conservative thinking?

How dare rich people speak out about tax issues that don't fall in line with conservative thinking? Neil Cavuto went too far this time when he went after Kristen (Veronica Mars) Bell after she tweeted that rich people can afford to pay more in taxes.

Nobody messes with the Neptune Goddess.

Cavuto: Should the star of Veronica Mars just go live on Mars...

Maybe Neil should move to Uranus. Why isn't she or any wealthy person allowed to say they are fine with paying more in taxes because they have a lot more money than 98% of the country? Neil uses the standard O'Reilly trope that says any person can just donate more money when they do their taxes so why push for higher taxes. Here's a Breitbart Big Hollywood shill writing the same thing.

This has become a tiresome routine, the hollow declaration of fiscal selflessness. Sure, it sounds noble to make this stand, but ultimately it is an empty gesture. The first and obvious response is a simple, "Why have you not paid more already?" Not only would the government love to see more of your cash, Kristen, they make it possible for you to contribute.

Why is it an empty gesture? It's a bold gesture on her part that puts conservatives like Brad Slager on the defensive and forces others like Neil Cavuto to do idiotic segments on Fox News.

By the way, if you're a fan of Veronica Mars then you will enjoy the new movie. It's definitely for the fans and it was good fun. I streamed it last weekend and will write a short review forthwith.
