Hillary Clinton and her 25 percent tax on guns


If you are anything like me, I am getting weary of the Clinton server issue. While we look at her latest shiny object, her long history and baggage never comes to the fore. She was and is nothing more than a two-bit attorney from Arkansas that rode her husband’s coattails to fame and fortune. Her first taste of evil doing came with the Nixon impeachment- hiding documents, and she has never looked back.  One of her first attempts at notoriety came with a Senate hearing very soon after she arrived at the White House. Obama was never vetted, let us not let Hillary off the hook this time.

As she testified before the tax-writing Senate Finance Committee on Sept. 30, 1993, Hillary Clinton was asked by Sen. Bill Bradley (D-N.J.) if she supported the imposition of a new, 25 percent national sales tax on guns. Clinton emphatically endorsed the tax, stating: “I am all for that.”

As reported by the Associated Press on Oct. 1, 1993:

Sen. Bill Bradley, D-N.J., picked up Mrs. Clinton’s support for his idea of slapping stiff taxes on ”purveyors of violence:” a 25 percent sales tax on guns and $2,500 license fees for gun dealers.

”Speaking personally … I’m all for that,” said the first lady. But she stressed she was just speaking for herself.

”Well, let me say that there is no more important personal endorsement in the country today, and I thank you very much,” said a pleased-as-punch Bradley.

After she publically endorsed the 25 percent gun tax in congressional testimony, she made sure that everyone understood how important this was to her, saying: “I am speaking personally, but I feel very strongly about that.”

Remarkably, although the hearing was broadcast on C-SPAN and Clinton’s 25 percent gun tax endorsement was noted at the time by the AP, the Washington Post, the New York Times and others, a search of leading news databases reveals not a single media mention since 1993. Americans for Tax Reform is now highlighting the gun tax endorsement as the latest addition to its dossier of Clinton’s tax positions, available at HighTaxHillary.com.

    This in response to petermc3 and Steve D. Remember the ’90’s Slick W was talking of Imputed Value Tax? Your home paid off, some rooms not used much. Not fair you not paying when others paying rent all the while. Paid off privilege, I guess. Not fair.
    P.S. Refugee space? Welcome to RefugeeWorld. 🙂

        Imagine the ads (SeaWorld @ Drudge). Refugees live longer in RefugeeWorld than in ME. Should be a hit, until we hit. And yes, that was the poop. Two scoops I read. 🙂

    I am getting weary of it too but I cannot help myself! But you are right, she has a long history of hiding documents so we should not be surprised she did the same as SoS.
    This notion of a national sales tax on guns is something I wouldn’t be surprised if she still supports and of course we know that if something like this is ever implemented it will only be the beginning of both her radical anti-gun agenda and a full blown national sales tax over time.

      You’re correct Unit.The slickmeister’s time in office was such a clusterfuck how could we not forget as much as we remember. And now we have Ponderosa ass ready to step in and finish what Bubba and Okrana couldn’t.

    Keep in mind that after the bobby twins inauguration in January 1993, they stated publicly that Americans should be paying more for gas at the pump. Why should the great unwashed be paying $1.00+ while europeans pay $4.00+. The majority of us reside in willful and ignorant bliss which is why i still contend:
    Hillary in 2016 and Chelsea in 2024.
