On Morning Joe, Pat said Obama and the Democrats don't understand that people making $250,000.00 a year really suffering. They are paying more for food. They are paying more for gas. Private schools are expensive. Many are putting their children through college and that's expensive. They can't even afford a "summer home". Pat was pleading for these pitiful people. Barely making ends meet. And not a single person on Joe's panel asked the obvious question, "What about people making $40,000.00 a year?" I think I understand the Republican point of view now. Anyone making below $250,000.00 a year is simply not worth helping. Not worth anything at all.
