    obamination keeps talking about how he wants to help the "middle class" but he wanted to raise income taxes on people making $250,000 a year.

    Are they rich people?

    Are people working at Taco Bell but have to pay the obamacare tax....rich people?

    All this bullshit about helping the "middle class" when his policies increase healthcare costs, energy costs, gas prices and food prices....while costing middle class jobs.:clap2:

    Same old bullshit speech today....

    Also - anyone know who the "rich" are? Got an amount when one is deemed "rich?"

    It's upper middle class. You're certainly well off, but not what I consider "rich."

    How can someone with two kids in college, a mortgage, car payments, insurance, etc., be "well off" at $250K/year?

    I'd like to know what a Liberal how touts this middle class shit has to say, i.e. what's "Middle Class" and what's "Rich?"

    From the progressives view point the rich are those who make more than me.

    Many people in that $250,000 category are small business owners since their company revenue is their personal revenues, so raising their taxes will force them to downsize or quit their business.

    Socialists have always attacked the middle class to implement their system, they can't have a strong middle class....so first slip in taxes on $250K then work his way down......

    The average american makes about $42K a year. Making $250,000 puts you in the top 2% of earners in the country.
