    When someone makes a statement that moronic, it's time to bug out of the thread.

    No amount of discussion, explanation, or data will help.

    How much of the decline in the middle class is due to people becoming more wealthy and thus being considered rich
    Zero point zero...


    How much of the decline in the middle class is due to raising the bar on the poverty level so that some at the lower end of the scale are now considered "poor"
    Zero point Zero...




    And how much of the decline is actually due to people making less money than they used to and are now "poor"
    On purpose..??

    I'd love to see those statistics.
    He says as if someone were hiding them... Psst. Go online and goodge Census. 2010 Census

    It's sounds like you believe it's all a big conspiracy, that the tax code and census data are being manipulated while we sleep.

    So, what do you hope to accomplish by raising taxes on the, "rich"?

    If taxing folks is so critical to our survival, why aren't the Libbos pushing to abolish the earned income credit?

    "Get some skin in the game", right?

    Why, dont you know? Those taxes provide more crumbs for the pets (and especially just before the election)...because it has been so effective so far.

    That whole 'wealth redistribution' thing...how exactly is THAT working out?

    Because liberal rhetoric can only carry you so far. At least 47 democrats are smart enough to recognize it.

    I already know what the deal is. I just want to hear them tell us what's up.
