    "The guests paid $40,000 to attend, accounting for about $6 million of the evening's financial haul for Obama's campaign and the Democratic Party."

    "Among those at the dinner were such actors and performers as Robert Downey Jr., Barbra Streisand and her husband James Brolin, Jack Black, Salma Hayek and Tobey Maguire, who shared a table with Clooney and Clooney's girlfriend Stacey Kiebler."

    Obama jokes with Clooney at star's gala fundraiser - Yahoo! News

    If these Morons in Hollywood have this much money to spare, then maybe we need to raise their Federal Tax Rates........ :lol:

    California is broke, you'd think they would be helping their own poor, downtrodden and homeless.

    They may be smart enough to memorize some lines for a Movie, but when it comes to common sense, many are dumb as rocks ...

    They're helping him build his war chest so he can find more people bullied (cough, cough) by Romney. Don't forget about the dog!! No I'm not talking about the one that was eaten.

    No shit sherlock.

    Albert Pujols will make 25 million this year alone. Yea I would be heatbroken if he had to pay 3% more in income tax. Matter of fact, there are a buch of professional athletes making tens of millions. DO NOT RAISE THEIR TAXES.

    How about actors and actresses. Making millions. Can't raise their taxes either.

    Hedge fund managers, making billions. DO NOT RAISE THEIR TAXES.

    How about musicians making millions. Can't raise their taxes. They are the
    JOB CREATORS.

    But if you can't raise taxes on the people with millions, who you gonna raise taxes on?
    People without millions? You mean the rest of us.


    Funny thing about the Rethugs. Can't raise money on their friends but by doing so, they can't rasie taxes on the millioniares that don't vote Rethug. You think that pisses them off?

    Tea Party imbeciles insist on tax plans that will raise taxes on the middle-class, and lower taxes on the rich who already pay less in taxes than the middle-class. When the rich are paying $40,000 to raise money for Obama, clearly they have more money than they know what to do with. Which is one of many reasons we should have progressive taxes - the rich can most afford to support the government that is by and for the rich.

    Bet Lovitz wasn't there.

    He thinks Barry's a fucking idiot and he voted for the guy.
