    or should the poor and middle class bare ALL the burden of reducing the deficit?
    given the top one percent are paying 40% of the income taxes and almost all the death taxes I'd say there are other groups who need to pick up some of the slack

    No one. RUSH wasn't around to inform them who to demonize.Musta been sad all that hate bottled up like that.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    yeah no one despised tax hiking dems before Rush came along. everyone who worked hard and smart wanted to be looted by parasitic dem politcians who demonize them and so they could tell the masses that the dem politicians will loot the rich and give to the poor. No one was a conservative before Rush came along, he delivered us from being brainwashed welfare socialist sheeple

    geez do you people read the stuff you post?

    So tell us Turtle , given that taxation goes back some 5,000 years to at least the Egyptians, who did your right wing ancestors demonize when the government collected taxes? What names did you call them before Karl Marx would write his book over 4,800 years later?

    Kinda looks like Robert Reich has it figured out and it only took a couple of minutes. Makes you wonder why some of our politicians cant figure this one out eh?

    Question for the liberals. How did your ancestors survive before Government came along and redistributed OPM to you ?
