    What about the rich Democrats (Pelosi comes to mind)? Seems they have not minded having the tax advantage over so many years.

    What do you mean? Pelosi has been fighting to raise taxes on the rich including herself for decades. As loud as she possibly can...

    As have the majority of Democrats, unlike the majority of Republicans.

    Oh you mean the job loss that continued to grow under him, even with the stimulus spending? And the tax revenue that he and a democratic controlled congress and senate extended ?? Is that what you mean?

    chuckles .... well it seems she is only concerned with her own ... remember the raise in min. wage .... seems she didn't like that for people in her area ...

    January, 2007 when the minimum wage was increased from $5.15 to $7.25, Pelosi had American Samoa exempted from the increase so Del Monte would not have to pay the higher wage. This would make Del Monte products less expensive than their competition's.

    Last week when the huge bailout bill was passed, Pelosi added an earmark to the final bill adding $33 million dollars for an 'economic development credit in American Samoa '.

    And this proves the majority of Democrats have not voted against continuing tax cuts for the rich how exactly?

    If you want to change the discussion to earmarks, you are going to be disappointed as well because there is very little difference in earmark amounts from the two parties.

    Btw, why no avatar? Are you keeping the spot blank until my selection for you is made in a few months per our wager?

    Amazing she was ineffective when the Dems controlled both houses. Ever think she says those things because her supporters want to hear it even knowing it will never happen. Politics.

    A majority of Democrats opposed the tax cuts for the wealthy while a majority of Republicans supported them. And the American public has become acutely aware of which side is representing the working class and which is side is not.
