    No, because there is not enough wealth left in the middle class to tax them any further.

    Again, so what? We dont pay for hamburgers by percentage. It wouldnt be fair if Romney paid 1000x more for a hamburger, and its not fair that he pays 1000x more for govt.

    False. The middle class accounted for 3 trillion in AGI, and only paid 138 billion in income tax. Thats leaves a lot of income to tax, nevermind wealth.

    If the Republicans cause taxes to increase for the middle class to protect their rich pals tax cuts they will lose the House, so roll on GOP, roll on!!!
