Personally I just want Turtledude to pay more taxs so he can finally be right about everyone not loving his beloved teaparty because of envy...cmon, the guys gotta be right once..
Who cares if the rich get richer?
That's never been a problem in any civilized society. Rich people have money to spend and that grows the economy and that means jobs grow.
What should scare the living **** out of you is when a bunch of self-proclaimed elitists arrogate to themselves the authority and the power to decide who is making too much money and how they should be punished for being successful.
There's not one word in the Constitution of the United States or in the Declaration of Independence that says people who succeed in life should be punished for their success.
People like Warren Buffet? OF COURSE he wants people punished for making too much money. The ranks of millionaires was swelling every year, until Obama, and that meant there were too many nouveau riche moving into his beloved Laguna Beach and taking up the parking at his favorite restaurants. Every REAL American must question the motives of anyone seekin to punish success. Punishing success is unamerican.
I guess you fail to realize that liberals support policies that hurt the poor while on face value(these last two words are put here for a reason) are designed to help the poor. D:why do Cons always make the strawman about raising taxes being "class-warfare" against the rich, while they support economic and financial policies that clearly hurt the Middle-class?
Anyway, making taxes that only affect the rich, while having the poor pay no taxes but still getting representation is clearly class warfare.
What was that old saying?
Oh yeah.. In the old days the problem was taxes without representation, today it is representation without taxes.

"Cutting back on investments"....that means spending less and not expanding their businesses...which means they won't be hiring Joe Middle Class's college graduate son this year.
The Mayor says that will hurt the middle classes LOTS.
And that's only one way.
