    I think you're right, they lie. But, without this inflamatory rhetoric, they'd have to tell the truth, which doesn't treat them well.

    •  Of course they're lying and they know it (2+ / 0-)

      This is one of those issues that isn't really about the actual issue, but about race. "People who don't pay taxes" is obvious code for black and Latino welfare cheats. And you know what? I think they know that relatively few people on assistance or entitlements are actual cheats. They just don't like minorities of color and this is yet another excuse to beat up on them "legitimately".

      This is and always has been about race, not taxes.
