Class warfare in Houndsville

March 3, 2012

Ruben Bolling’s Lucky Ducky cartoons began in response to a series of Wall Street Journal editorials in 2002 and 2003 about low-income “lucky duckies” who paid little or no federal income taxes.  The editorial writers feared that the growing number “lucky duckies” might become a political constituency for raising federal income taxes.  This didn’t happen.   Political pressure for low federal income taxes, which fall most heavily on the rich, is much greater than pressure for reductions in sales taxes, payroll taxes and residential property taxes, which respectively fall most heavily on poor people, wage-earners and the middle class.
