Statement: “We should raise taxes on the wealthy.”

Source: Bob from Accounting

Analysis: The language used in this   statement is literal because Bob means exactly what he says; we should raise   taxes on the wealthy. He does not use a simile, metaphor, or a comparison to something   else to describe what he means. His language is vague because he does not   provide a distinction on what monetary amount should be considered wealthy. Are   people who make over $50,000 per year wealthy, $1,000,000, or somewhere in   between? Bob from Accounting is not a credible source, because although he   most likely possesses financial knowledge, there is no way to confirm he has reliable   knowledge about government and taxation.Statements Analysis Worksheet
