if I can give 26% of nothing even befor ir's earned the rich can give 40% of something others handed them . The rich forget the other people are who buy their cheap labor imported junk at inflated developed country market rate.

in honesty can't we agree the rich can well afford to take a back seat for part of the trip. They should consider playing nice and sharing the ball now to possibly avoidhaving their ball, bat, glove, sneakers, cap, chewing gum and braces taken later. TYhey could be standing in a soup line in their drawers along with the regular Americans who earned all the easy money for them.

so we renewed the Bush Tax Cuts again! Reality is very hard to comprehend so often we don't bother. Bush was bad, right? And yet the Bush tax cuts which were implemented by Bush during his term, resulted in turning back recession, but they had a short shelf life. They called for no tax increase to the middle class (consumers), tax breaks for people investing in business, hiring more workers, building inventory (buying) or investing in new technology. And it gave each taxpayer making under $100K a $600.00 rebate check. It put $20 billion in the retail market rightway, and was opposed by Dems who protested that it allowed only taxpayers to get the rebate check and not the 47% nonfunctioning people. And yet Obama has renewed that twice now and that is what kept the MIDDLE CLASS from being taxed harder. So Obama does the rich guy rant and people just chant like magpies, but Obama IS the rich guy, and left D.C. for his $7 million taxpayer vacation on Air Force One. Reality, wow.
