    I guess no one told him that the top 1% pay 38% of all Federal income taxes or that $200,000 does not make you rich when combined taxes already take $100,000 and your mortgage takes $70,000 for an average house on East or West Coast.

    I don't know if I'd call Obama a "genius" or not. What I do know is that he's right about this: the rich are undertaxed in this country. What I also know is that statistical inversion remains a fallacy no matter how many times it's repeated, and the share of income taxes paid by the rich -- as opposed to the share of their income they pay in taxes -- means nothing at all.

    Yea, but how much do they make using roads built by middle class? Using bridges and electricity from a grid and dams built by a middle class? Making money from factories built and staffed with the middle class? Being protected by firemen and police from the middle class? In a country where the middle class send their young off to war to protect that wealth the rich accrued with the help of, you guess it, the middle class?

    The middle class paid with blood, sweat and the lives of their children. The rich can pay their fair share.

    You know you right wingers aren't rich. But you are fools.

    Actually everyone makes 100% of what they make using the roads. Sorry. Taxes are based on income, not how many miles you drive




    actually the police and fire protect middle class too!!. Sorry!!

    isn't nearly 100% their fair share??? Why not think before you post?
    Are you worried you make liberals look dumb?

    I'm not a envious, jealous, hate-filled person like yourself. Somewhere along the way someone convinced you that the key to your happiness is to denigrate people that have more than you and that the only way people acquire wealth is by stealing it, and that no one who has wealth earned it.

    What you demonstrate is a simplistic understanding of economics which unfortunately and quite obviously the current occupant of the White House shares.

    The majority of American's aren't envious assholes like yourself.

    I guess this is Obama's bright idea on how to create jobs.

    "I will not rest till every American that wants a job gets a job.....and while we're waiting on that LET'S TAX THE SHIT OUT OF THE RICH!!!!!"

    We find out about waste under his administration......"Let's Tax The Rich"

    We find out he's been giving guns to Mexican Drug Cartels....."Let's Tax The Rich".

    We discover his jobs program is just another Stimulus......."Let's Tax The Rich".

    exactly, they envy the intelligence and success of the rich and feel diminished or embarrassed by their relative inadequacy. They feel worse knowing the rich provide their jobs and invent the new products that got them from the stone age to here. In many ways we are all free loaders off Steve Jobs and his ilk. We owe them 1000 times more than they owe us.

    Also, the liberal will have a low IQ and so feel the rich got there at the expense of the poor. This is right out of Marx.
