    This is an excellent point.

    How does the middle class win from massive federal gov't deficit spending?

This is the great myth of taxing "the rich", that Obama uses to convince we the sheeple that we may continue to get endless gov't "services" and "entitlements" by simply taxing some anonymous "rich people", businesses or corporations "a bit more".

    The simplest and best answer would be that the middle class won since major spending cuts or increased taxes on them would significantly slow recovery.

    I fail to see where raising the debt and extending unemployment benefits were a win for the middle class as both shrink it even more.
