    That's not Obama dude.

    That's American politics in totality. Republicans and Democrats.

    And why don't you same people cry "Class warfare" when the wealthiest Americans are given the largest tax cuts and the middle and working class get smaller cuts?





    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm?
    Were wealthy Americans given a 33% tax break like low income families did under the Bush tax cut ???

    Why do you hate low income folks and why do you want to harm them???

    Sadly, true. Too true.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The problem comes with where income comes from. Middle class get the majority if not all their income from taxable salaries. The higher class gets it from investments which are taxed at 15% and not the 35% taxable income.

Looks like it took the centerist administration 3 years to figure out a rational way to deal with a center-right congress. Say what you want of the plan, but it is something the Dems can get behind.
    This proposal goes another step farther in insuring that Obama's butt will only serve one term as president.

    Really?Define class warfare for me then because it appears to me that the GOP doesn't care how much you make or how much anyone else makes. How is that class warfare? When are you going to stop believing the lies of this Administration? You want so badly to believe what you are told that you ignore reality and the facts regarding who pays the taxes and at what rate.

    Hasn't that money that is invested been taxes already? How many times should income be taxed?
