    Yow! :eek: Oh liberals, THAT'S GOTTA HURT!!!!! :lol::lol::lol:

    I can feel your pain from here! :lol::lol:


    Now this is FUNNY STUFF. Democrats fought like hell against those Tax Cuts all through the Bush admin.

    NOW it's Republicans in the way of extending those cuts? Oh please! :lol::lol: They have no power. They can't stop anything!

    Come on Democrats! How stupid do you think we are?

    YOU are now the vanguard of keeping these tax cuts, which you said for EIGHT YEARS WERE TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH? And you say that EVEN as you claim the GOP is the party of the rich.

    WELL WHO THE HELL PASSED THOSE TAX CUTS IN THE FIRST PLACE DEMOCRATS????????

    Bwahahahaaa!

    Man they have to KNOW they are going to LOSE big time in November to flip flop like this on Bush Tax cuts!

    Didn't read your own article, I see. Middle class tax cuts stay in place but the bogus tax cuts for the uber wealthy will expire. Dumbass.

    You know this is killing them! They will probably just float this around until after the elections and then let them expire for everyone....

    Families making over $200K in major metro areas are not uber wealthy - they are middle class.

    Quite correct - any family making a bit over $200k with a couple of kids in a metro area throughout the United States is hardly "wealthy".

    The Democrats are, just as the OP indicates, engaged in a painful practice of trying to parse the Bush tax cuts. These Democrats were and are against ALL cuts in the tax rates but with Election 2010 quickly approaching, some within the party are scrambling to try and save some of those very tax cuts they were so opposed to.

    Bullshit. The Census Bureau shows the middle class as 20% of the country earning between $40,000 and $95,000 annually. People making $200K a year are considered to be part of the upper class.

    Your link is a story from 2004 based upon information two or three years prior to that.

    Not applicable to the current discussion.
