This is what high taxes such as that favored by the American Democratic Party gets you. The top tax rate in Spain is 52%. Who is going to get up in the morning and work all day to have over half their earnings stolen from them? Who is going to invest in that environment? Why work 10 hours a day to have over 5 hours of your time and earnings stolen from you? Unemployment is going up in France also where the liberal left/socialist government raised taxes, attempting to set the top rate at 75% before the French court struck it down. 75% tax? Yup. This is what the liberal left brings you along with high unemployment, falling incomes, and rising poverty. In some regions of Spain, the unemployment rate is over 40% reportedly. In America, the actual unemployment rate adding back the millions of dropouts who lost jobs since Obama took office and stopped looking for work is 11.3%. What does the USA, Spain, and France have in common? An economy highjacked by the liberal left and their never-ending demands to steal what people work for.
