Rep. Dennis Ross (R-Fla.) reacted to President Obama’s plan to raise taxes on the wealthy Monday by suggesting Obama is acting like a pirate.The last thing we need during a recession is a backbreaking tax increase. Obama said so himself.
“Watch ye purses & bury yr loot, the taxman cometh,” Ross tweeted, joking that Obama might have misunderstood that Sept. 19 is “TALK like a pirate day...not ACT like one.”
Sept. 19 has been adopted into popular culture as “International Talk Like a Pirate Day” since popular humor columnist Dave Barry popularized the concept in 2002.
Ross also called Obama’s speech “offensive” in a more serious tweet Monday morning.
“Those who know this sideshow won't create a job or balance the budget don't think so [because] of any [corporation or] millionaire,” he wrote.
