    Barbara Boxer says 400 richest taxpayers saw incomes grow by 400 percent, tax rates

    Im no fan of barbara boxer...but politifact says that this statement by her is mostly the truth.




    The top 400 earners in this country are worth more than half of the American people," Boxer said. "And since 1995, the top 400 wealthiest families have seen their incomes go up 400 percent and their tax rates go down 40 percent."

    When are we going to start worrying about the illegals who are sucking up those precious tax dollars?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)

    Or for that matter do you realize how rich most of members of Congress are. The top 50 wealthiest members range from Texas Rep.Michael McCaul at $287 million to a paltry sum of $5.34 Million reported by Oregon senator Ron Wyden. How could they possibly understand what the majority of the American people have to deal with as far as their struggles just to pay bills and feed their family.

    some Like Speaker Boehner grew up rather poor and made his millions on his own. Some Like Steve Chabot didn't get rich off of public office and lives in the same home he had 25 years ago driving a 15 year old car. others got rich off of public office (Obama and clinton are prime examples) and others came from wealth, Many married into it-Kerry, Pelosi, Boxer and Feinswein

    There is no payment for the rights of citizenship. The US Constitution makes that very clear.

    How did Clinton & Obama get rich in public office? Both made salaries which according to you are modest. Clinton made all his money as a private citizen after his term ended. Obama is not a wealthy man.

    gee Haymarket. do you think CLinton could sell books or get 50K a speaking engagement but for his political office

    HOw did Michelle Obumble get a huge salary after her husband won a senate seat? do you think Obumbles book would have sold as much if he had not been elected president?

    How did AL Gore Sr-the poor country school teacher become a mllionaire after being taken in by Armand Hammer. Do you think his senate seat had something to do with that

    Obama is not a wealthy man? than why does that clown claim people like him need to pay more taxes?

    So that clown is a liar as well as an incompetent president?
