In the UK: Capital Gains Tax: rise ‘will cost economy 61,000 jobs’

The UK Telegraph reports that 61,000 jobs will be lost if the Capital Gains Tax is increased. The math is simple. If you want less of something, tax it. It is very refreshing to watch as true journalism and truth in government is practiced.

In America, a rise in any tax is not met with the truth in the same zip code if you listen to the Democrats and their press. Somehow, these taxes will actually create jobs in the minds of the Obamaites.

Same with Cap and Trade, Health Reform, and any other Democratic plan to “fix” the world.

But the Brits understand the the inversely proportional relationship between taxes and productivity. The Democrats in Americe are unable to comprehend that.

From the Telegraph:

Coalition plans to increase Capital Gains Tax could cost the UK economy 61,000 jobs and £4 billion, new figures have suggested.

The calculations from the Adam Smith Institute, a think-tank, emerged as Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister, signalled that ministers are willing to back down on several aspects of their controversial plans.

A senior Cabinet minister also told the Daily Telegraph that the final policy will reflect the views of senior Conservative backbenchers.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
