TV show that mocks the Tea Party demands millions in tax breaks

Font Size:

“Taxes for thee, not for me.” Ain’t that always the way?

I stepped away from the second season of House of Cards a couple of episodes after it jumped the Metro, but I did catch the one where they ripped on those crazy teabaggers. Hey, look at the funny rednecks who think they’re being taxed to death. LOL!

But it’s not so funny when it happens to the good guys. And now they’re being treated like everybody else who complains about taxes. With contempt from the parasites who feed off those taxes.

Timothy B. Wheeler, Baltimore Sun:

Responding to a threat that the “House of Cards” television series may leave Maryland if it doesn’t get more tax credits, the House of Delegates adopted budget language Thursday requiring the state to seize the production company’s property if it stops filming in the state…

Del. William Frick, a Montgomery County Democrat, proposed the provision, which orders the state to use the right of eminent domain to buy or condemn the property of any company that has claimed $10 million or more credits against the state income tax. The provision would appear to apply only to the Netflix series, which has gotten the bulk of the state credits.

There’s no good guy here. It’s Maryland thugs vs. Hollywood slugs. Go ahead and bloody each other up, jerks. You deserve each other.

Just something to remember the next time Frank Underwood rolls his eyes at those small-government “extremists.”
