Children Now More Afraid Of Rich Not Paying Fair Share Than Monster Under Bed

In a recent survey of the nation’s children, rich folks not paying their fair share has leapfrogged monsters under the bed in their list of fears.

“I used to sit in bed and be afraid of the boogeyman,” said 7 year-old Emily Trent. “But now I’m scared of the 1% skirting paying their fair share of taxes with loopholes and write-offs,” she said before clutching her mother in tears.

The study shows that despite parents explaining the Laffer Curve to frightened children—the economic principle which explains how a modest tax rate will actually bring in more tax revenue than a higher rate in the long run—the children are still fearful our nation’s infrastructure won’t be properly funded.
