Rich Dave, Poor Dave

Look, kids! It’s Bill Weld!

ALBANY, N.Y – Republican candidate for governor Bill Weld proposed Tuesday that New York eliminate the personal income tax for people making up to $75,000.

“That’s a living wage,” he said. “I think that would be a great step” to stemming the flow of New York college graduates leaving the state for better opportunities.

At first I thought, “Wow, I make less than half of a living wage.” And then I realized I don’t know anyone in my field (journalism) or age group (millenials) who makes within shooting distance of $75,000. So, there are two possibilites.

1)Bill Weld = insane.
2)Everyone I know = will die of tuberculosis.

  1. No Taxes??? I’d vote for that guy, And just think how much more money Walmart will be able to make.

  2. That was hilarious. And yes, I’m sure that’s not an exaggeration for parts of new york, I am learning that in Cali, a couple needs to bring in 60,000 for a decent living in a two-bedroom apartment.
