    But they never support tax increases for themselves. Isn't that just so cute? I think so.

    I'll take a tax hike to help get this fixed.

    Where did you get this foolish notion?

    I'm not wealthy. I am against tax hikes for the wealthy. Why should we forcibly restrict their financial freedoms to pay for a failing and foolish budget?

    Well, I don't consider myself wealthy, but I don't consider myself poor - and on this board (you know who they are), if you're not wealthy, you just get accused of being a lazy shiftless nogoodnik wanting to take rich people's money from them...

    Because today, striving to give your family a decent life isn't enough - that means you're worthless and must be abhorred by rich elites as they build their cash forts around them.

    If the Tea Party freshman really wanted to make a statement about government spending, the first thing they should've done was cut their own salaries and make them equal to the median salary in the country - but they didn't do that, did they? Because they are only against government spending that doesn't go into their own pockets (like Bachmann and all of her government-sponsored income).

    If we already tax them the most and its not making things better, why do we think taxing them more will work?

    I'm not rich by any definition, and certainly not wealthy. I just like tax cuts for everyone. Except for left handed people. It's part of my master plan to make them no more than a passing interest in history books.
