    Exactly.

    I'm not assuming anything.

    I'm correctly acknowledging that the Democrat Party has successfully used class warfare as a campaign strategy when it's far more accurate to say the wealthy are getting the short end of the stick in the United States.

    Again, have you looked at tax distribution in this country?

    Ironically, yes, as Obama continues handing out envelopes full of government gratitude to those he's indebted.

    People who earn enough to be in the top 10%, but not in the top 1%. In other words, people who can afford to donate the previous max donation.

    The people who pay the least taxes are those in the very top.

    In all seriousness, how can you possibly believe this?

    You're exactly the type of low income voter I'm talking about.

    Funny how those who limits support Reid and Pelosi, two of the most donor beholden people to ever hold office.

    This just means the unions will not have to skirt the rules by claiming millions of small donations from each of their members anymore.
