    Here's the wonderful irony.

    Those that oppose the tax will be called "greedy" by the defenders of it for daring to want to keep the money they earned and use it as they see best...

    ...but will NEVER use the term for people who want to have the government forcefully take money from people and then have the government give themselves completely unearned services for free.

    Its apparently greedy to want what you earn, but not greedy to want what others earned.

    And, therein lies the biggest problem with Liberalism.

    I don't call them greedy, I call them Dupes (the ones from the middle class who won't actually be subject to the tax) or Enemies of America (The rich folk who oppose the tax).

    There won't be anyone who isn't subject to the tax.

    Re: AP POLL: Tax the rich to pay for health bill

    Of course we have to tax the rich, for the same reason Willie Sutton robbed banks, because that is where the money is...

    Who else can we tax?

    BTW, I am probably considered rich.....over $600K in property assets, about $100K in savings, and a 6 figure retirement income....more than enough for me and the wife to enjoy the rest of our days....

    Now if you can't understand that, take 50 Tylenol and call me in the morning.
    What does any of that have to do with how people think the health care bill should be paid for?

    You are labeling it propaganda because the review left out survey results that had nothing to do with the review. This wasn't a review of how people felt about the health care bill or the overall public opinion. It was how people surveyed thought the bill should be paid for.
