Soak the Rich: MasterCard

MasterCard, Inc. forces Americans into high credit card debt by making it convenient to open and use a charge account. Worse, MasterCard invites unflattering parallels between irresponsible citizens and the federal government. Looks like we’ve found another corporation to participate in Sherrod Brown’s tax-hikin’ solution to America’s $1.62 trillion 2011 budget deficit!

Now Soaking: MasterCard, Inc.

Fear not: a massive spike in MasterCard’s taxes won’t make life more expensive or less convenient for responsible cardholders. Although a “free market” is nothing more than evil fat-cats cheating helpless saps out of money, Sheriff Sherrod’s patrolling these parts! Supply, demand, risk, cost, and reward are shadows from the dark old days.

None of MasterCard’s 5,600 employees will lose their jobs if Sherrod Brown and Barack Obama work their not-at-all-socialist magic. Last and least, the only funds & individuals holding any of MasterCard’s 121,000,000 outstanding shares of stock who suffer will be the ones who deserve to.

We, The People who support Sherrod Brown’s fiscal policies, hold these leftist conceits to be self-evident.
