Obama has said on record two times that raising taxes during a recession would harm the economy and he wouldn’t do so. Why has he decided to do so now? He either wants to harm the economy which I doubt or he wants to shore up his base with this. Why shore up his base and alienate independents when his base will vote for him in 12 no matter what you might ask. My answer is this isn’t about the election; this is about the breaking white house scandals. Obamas going to need a strong steady wall between him and impeachment if these scandals go where I and apparently he thinks they are going. What other reason can there be to destroy the economy and alienate independents which he desperately needs to be reelected?
Yes, it is fair in the sense that the top 1% owns about 33% of the country's wealth. Or you could put it another way: someone making $80k might be paying a lower overall rate, but he's probably paying a much, much higher percentage of his disposable income.We have 1 percent of the population earn 19 percent of the income but pay 37 percent of the income tax, is that fair?
The dishonest SOB doesn't explain that on his artificially low SALARY INCOME HE PAYS A HIGHER RATE than his secretary and he pays thousands times more in actual dollars.
who are all of these millionaires, who support higher-taxes on millionaires, envious of?

The GOP National Committee should change their emblem from an elephant to a condom. A condom stands up to inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects pricks, and gives one a sense of security and safety while screwing others.
