Quote of the week: Gara on class warfare

“Politics shouldn’t be about class warfare and eyeing the next election. I’m proud of the many wealthier Alaskans who have said they’d like chip in. So today over 6,000 Alaska corporations and lawyers, realtors, banks and doctors are exempted from paying corporate or any other taxes.”

Rep. Les Gara, advocating for income taxes in an Alaska Dispatch News op-ed.

In other words, class warfare is bad. Long live class warfare.

  • “Some of my wealthy friends are for an income tax. And yes, they have ways to hide their income from the AK tax man. So the tax burden will fall on those that are not wealthy. But that’s not class warfare.” Less Gara

    • Thank you.

  • Representative Gara went to Harvard.

  • If wealthy liberals are the despised elite, what are the wealthy conservatives?

    The hand that feeds you?
