    Let's here it Obama supporters how does taxing the rich benefit the U.S. economy and how much money is going to be generated to fund the liberal spending appetite?

    Class warfare is never going to solve the problems we face in this country and what ever happened to incentive to create more upper class individuals? Growing up I always strove to generate enough money to pay for a family that I hoped to have and fund charities that I want to support. My education process taught me the value of hard work and the desire to succeed. What happened to that philosophy in today's world? Why is it the Federal Government's role to tell the private sector where to spend its own money and on what?
    (chuckle)

    "Class warfare"... When are you guys going to give up on the memes.

    The new taxes are long overdue and I look forward to their attention, however, just because Obama says he's gonna do it doesn't make it so.

    Which would explain why he has presided over federal spending falling by ~16% relative to its peak in 2009 (not even HIS FY, but trolls claim it is) as a % of GDP. Which is why the budget deficit has declined by almost 66% since he took office. Right?

    I don't think he's all that popular in the left, either. I don't think it is actually possible for Obama to poll any lower than he was polling. Watch and see. No matter what he does, the diehard pinkos will support him and that's pretty much all he's got right now. I consider the current state to be his solid floor as far as approval ratings and popularity go. I don't think there's anything he could do to make the remaining Obamaphiles abandon their support for him.

    But pandering to the freestuffers will certainly help get those numbers up. Nothing ignites the base like promises of free stuff and punishing the rich.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    .... and also to play to his extremist OWS base.

    As I said, tax increases will never pass Congress so its all hollow rhetoric, red meat for the Left.

    smh. He is polling at 46% approval on gallup right now.
    at the same time in their terms, Truman and Bush were in the mid 30s.

    "don't think it's possible" ? smh

    The only taxes that should be raised are gas taxes, as the sharp decrease in oil and gas prices means drivers can afford an extra 25 cents per gallon to fix highways, bridges, and tunnels.

    Only in your mind has federal spending decreased under Obama.

    Gallup: Voter opposition to Obama at 16-year high, worse than Bush, Clinton
    Gallup: Voter opposition to Obama at 16-year high, worse than Bush, Clinton | WashingtonExaminer.com

    Angry and frustrated voters are planning to use the midterm elections in one month to tell President Obama they oppose his agenda, the highest “no” vote percentage Gallup has measured in the past 16 years.

    The polling outfit found that 32 percent of voters want to send a message of opposition with their vote, compared to just 20 percent who are sending a signal of support.

    That is 13 points higher than in 1998 when former President Clinton was headed to impeachment for lying about his sex affair with a former White House intern and even a smidge higher — 2 points — than in 2008, when Americans were tired of President Bush’s military actions in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Absolutely. But extremists are a small segment of our electorate, and they vote for their team even when their team disappoints them. That's why we often mistakenly refer to extremists as "the base".
