On Up with Chris Hayes, two of the topics were PPACA and Romney's Cayman accounts, which led to a discussion regarding taxes. At least today, Hayes admitted to his guests that he believes that conservatives on the Right really have convinced themselves that their ideas like cutting taxes and repealing healthcare are correct ideas. Hayes' Progressive guests were not so understanding -- they believe the Right is simply against Obama. It's really amazing that the Left is so obsessed with Obama that they can't imagine anyone disagreeing with his views out of sincere ideological differences -- they have to be racists or simply partisan hacks out to destroy him. Hayes said that he believes these strange creatures on the Right actually believe what they are promoting. But, according to Hayes, they are terribly wrong.
Hayes even had one of the strange creatures on the show, Steve Moore. Hayes and Moore argued awhile about tax evasion, a flat tax and other conflicts between Left and Right that never get resolved. Hayes and his little Progressive crew were trying to frame Romney as a tax dodger, and how this is very unpresidential, as if Romney is the only person ever running for President who has used the tax code to reduce what he owes in taxes. Plus, Hayes has no information on Romney's Cayman accounts, so it's all just guessing and assumptions at this point. Hayes told Moore that even though the corporate tax rate is higher in the US than in other developed nations, the taxes aren't collected. That's only partly true, because small business don't have the ability to hire expensive attorneys to manuever the byzantine tax code. Hayes is always defending Government against anti-statists who want to limit government power, so it's funny that Hayes is identifying tax evasion problems that are created and allowed by government and which help the most powerful corporations. Hayes wants to blame tax evasion on private sector enterprise and rich bastards, when in reality, just the top companies have been favored by government to enjoy the breaks government put in the tax code. Small businesses are being placed at an unfair disadvantage -- this is how government operates. Hayes didn't blame government, not did he have any criticism to level against Obama for not pushing total tax reform, so that rates can be lowered and more revenue collected. Hayes is obviously like Obama, they prefer the higher rates even though they bring in less revenue. Strange.
As for the PPACA controversy, Hayes and his Progressive pals laughed at the end of the show, as Hayes said that he applauds the controversy, because it takes focus off the economy, and as a Democrat that's a good thing -- cynical partisanship, that's what Hayes represents, not fair and objective analysis of the news. At least he's honest about his biased and unfair reporting.
