I received this forwarded email:
Tighten your belts!! The House Speaker is at it AGAIN....What does www.snopes.com say about this? FALSE!
Thought you had heard it all? not quite!!
Adding a tax to your retirement is simply another way of saying to the American people, you're so stupid that we're going to keep doing this until we drain every cent from you.
That's what the Speaker of the House is saying. Read below...............
Nancy Pelosi wants a Windfall Tax on Retirement Income.
You aren't going to believe this.
Madam speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to put a Windfall Tax on all stock market profits (including Retirement funds, 401Ks and Mutual Funds!).
Alas, it is true - all to help the 12 Million Illegal Immigrants and other unemployed Minorities! Boy, are we in trouble... This woman is frightening. She said...' We need to work toward the goal of equalizing income in our country and at the same time limiting the amount the rich can invest.'
When asked how these new tax dollars wou ld be spent, she replied, 'We need to raise the standard of living of our poor, unemployed and minorities. For example, we have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities. Stock market windfall profits taxes could go a long way to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as 'Americans'.'
This lady is out of her mind.
I'm not a Nancy Pelosi fan by any stretch of the imagination. Some of the stuff she supports makes the nonsense above sound credible... but I'm incredulous.
So I guess the only thing that rings true about the email what the statement, "You're not going to believe this."
