    Anyone who believes Obama will hurt the rich after seeing him in action for two years MUST be a republican teabagger.

    Are you going to chase me around for 40 posts. It is my learned observation based on several things

    1) the crap dem politicians spew

    2) what has happened to the size of the government and the deficit as a result of the current tax system that allows the many to demand more and more spending that they don't have to pay for

    You cannot disprove the fact that a) we have this sort of system b) that dem politicians constantly claim the rich need to pay more and c) the government and deficit has grown tremendously since the new deal

    you can try-though I doubt you have the mojo-to claim my conclusions and analysis are flawed.

    if you were in a profession that required analytical reasoning you would understand that I take facts that cannot be disputed and from those facts conclude that certain things have happened because of those facts. I do it daily in my legal practice. A client will say X,Y, and Z are true and i have to predict what the outcome will be.

    that is unadulterated crap. the top class pays far more taxes than any other group when it comes to actual money to the federal government

    I love how the socialists want to compare marginal rates with the confiscatory top margins due to WWII and ignore the share of the tax burden the rich shoulder and Ignore the fact that for more than half our country's history the tax rates on the rich's income was far far far lower than it is today

    the people getting a break are the people who have the exact same citizenship benefits as we do and don't pay any federal income taxes

    Results: Unadjusted mortality for Medicare (4.4%), Medicaid (3.7%) and Uninsured (3.2%) patient groups were higher compared to Private Insurance groups (1.3%). Moreover, mortality was lowest for Private Insurance patients independent of operation. Importantly, after controlling for age, gender, income, geographic region, operation, and 30 comorbid conditions, Medicaid payer status was associated with the longest length of stay and highest total costs.
