    Of course you aren't because I doubt you are in that economic class but you as usual miss the main point and that is the principle of the matter. What right does the govt. have to take money from one class and spend it the way they deem necessary? When you allow that to happen you open the door for more abuse of your own personal income.

    Screw all this BS about class envy and the size of government. Can you guys ever say anything that is not a bumper sticker cliche?

    I ask again since there has not yet been an honest answer:

    if we cuts taxes for the rich and the economy improves creating more wealth for the rich and more for corporations but there is no job growth for the bottom 20% who are now hurting, is that good for American society?

    or lets try it this way

    If that scenario happens, would you still advocate cutting taxes on the rich knowing that it will not produce the jobs for the lower 20%?

    obviously you are not worth much. People who attain that sort of wealth normally didn't get there by pissing away dollars left and right.

    you do know that the planned tax hikes mean a 10% hike in the amount of taxes on earned income people will pay and a 100% or more increase on taxes on dividends.

    If someone is a retiree with 300K in dividend income what do you think their taxes will rise to? more than a few percentage points

    It's the Left who is so asscoiated with bumper stickers, big government and class envy that the it's impossible to separate one from the next.

    However, if you have anything of any depth to add, I'd certainly like to read it.
