With only two weeks remaining before Americans make their voices heard at the polls, now's the time for policy discussion but also the occasional celebrity endorsement.
Rapper 50 Cent today combined both into one after realizing that, under Joe Biden's tax plan, high earners in his native New York City would find a stunning 62 % of their incomes taxed through both state and federal taxes. Talk about the government appropriating wealth!
On Tuesday, 50 Cent (aka Curtis Jackson) took to Twitter to express his disbelief with such a high proposed tax rate and told his followers to vote for Trump before simply stating "I'm out."
"62 % are ya out of ya [expletive] mind," tweeted the rapper.
Besides New York City, New York at large, California, and New Jersey would see similarly high tax rates (is it a coincidence that these are blue states? It seems they get what they vote for!).
This just goes to show that even those like 50 Cent who don't like Donald Trump realize that his policies are better for the nation than Biden's. 62.6 % would be a nearly unprecedented tax rate for high earners.
"I don't want to be 20 cent," tweeted the rapper later in the day.
Trump’s campaign is hopeful that increased support among black voters — and also among Hispanics, targeted with anti-socialism appeals — will offset alleged decreased support for Trump detected in polling among elderly voters concerned about the COVID-19 pandemic.
In an online post Monday, the 45-year-old 50 Cent urged fans to “VOTE For TRUMP” after he reviewed Biden’s tax plan.
Biden supports raising tax rates for corporations and people making $400,000 or more per year, reversing part of Trump’s 2017 tax law that reduced the top federal rate for individuals from 39.6 percent to 37 percent.
It's things like this that make me ever more confident that Joe Biden is going to lose the election. I still stand by what I've said for months, it's going to be a landslide.
