A freeloader is defined as, “a person who takes advantage of others’ generosity without giving anything in return.”
If you’re a Republican, this term usually applies to illegal immigrants who drain tax payer money while refusing to assimilate or look for work.
If you’re a Democrat, a freeloader is a taxpayer.
At least, this is the case in California, land of the weed and home of the gays. California is Exhibit A of what Democrats will do if they’re not held back by Republicans.
In order to finance their socialist, sanctuary city utopia, Californian law makers are increasing taxes.
Understandably, citizens are complaining, but Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown decided that insulting the upset citizens was the best way to go.
From The Daily Wire:
At an event last week in Orange Country, California, that state’s governor, Democrat Jerry Brown, blasted law-abiding taxpayers as “freeloaders.”
The context involves Brown’s recent $52 billion tax hike, which includes a direct attack on the middle and working class through a 12 cent increase in the gas tax, which is already the 7th highest in the country, and an annual $50 increase (that will continue to increase based on the rate of inflation) in the vehicle registration fee.
“The freeloaders — I’ve had enough of them. … They have a president that doesn’t tell the truth and they’re following suit,” Brown said during a speech at an event aimed to defend a Democrat lawmaker facing a recall effort over the tax hike.
Yep, you heard that right — taxpaying citizens are the freeloaders, not the millions of people here illegally claiming what’s left of the benefits from bankrupt California.
Never mind how the Democrats are constantly misappropriating taxpayer dollars, funneling millions into ‘pet projects’ like the bullet train to nowhere. Nope, it’s the taxpayers that are the freeloaders.
Brown’s Freudian slip reveals the true face of the left.
There are already plenty of rumors that Jerry Brown is going to face stiff competition for Governor in 2018, and with the way he has turned left against his own voters, he may already know he has no chance.
Gavin Newsom is planning to running to carry the liberal torch, but his leadership would be even worse, if you can imagine that.
Democrats have nothing but disdain for those who work for a living, and it’s past time for Californians to get serious and start electing Republicans.
Californians have convinced themselves that living in a state abounding in natural beauty with the best climate in the nation is worth enduring ever-increasing regulation, taxation, and crime.
Only when the people footing the bill say, “No more”, or move out of the state, will the balance of power shift. Until then…well, you can’t fix stupid.
