    So we are all singing from the same hymnal, as the proposed tax hikes would only really affect millionaires... Now that we agree, let's get'r done.

    Oh, so you think there can be no Bourgeoisie populist elitists? Ok, sure, go with that....

    Obama, like in 08, thinks he has a mandate from the people. Like in 2010, 2014 will show him that he misread the American people yet again, and Democrats everywhere will scratch their collective heads wondering what just happened.

    Does he operate a small business? Does he only make $250,000 a year?

    How many exemptions are buried in the bills that exempt national politicians? Remember how the Democrats exempted themselves from Obamacare?

    It's infantile to believe that any politician is going to pass a law that is financially disadvantageous.

    I'm not here to make your points for you. Might I suggest Google for answers to those questions.

    Well see that's another point. Obama says he wants them raised on people like himself. But Obama is not in the Upper 2% of the Wealthy in this country. He never has been and he never will be.

    I didn't say that and you know it. Why would I lie like that? Why are you lieing like that? What fairy tale world do you live in? Can you possibly fathom that $200,000 isn't a million dollars?
