    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.

    Pat is a retarded racist. I can't believe he's still on Morning Joe. He must be their token...

    Morning Joe is very conservative and right wing. They fawned over the Governor of Florida who cut 1.7 billion from education. They love Scott Walker. They go on about how wonderful Paul Ryan is. Christie is a "god".

    They spend most of the show ragging on Democrats and Obama the most.

    Now this is what's funny. If Joe loses a debate, and anytime anyone presents "facts", like all Republicans, he loses. Joe raises his voice, finally, he faces away from the table and pouts. He's got to be in his 50's. He pouts and won't "join in". The guy is so immature.

    Today the rich are defined at ...$250,000?

    Bet all those $100,000,000 folks in the Senate are laughing their asses off.

    Scarboro sucks. I can't stand the guy. He yells and pouts like a 12 yr old brat. Every time I watch it I end up screaming at them for kissing [insert Republican]'s ass instead of asking a tough question.

    I agree that Scarborough is a childish wingnut. It's hard to believe MSNBC built a show around him. They should turn that whole show over to Willie Geist. He's a class act from what I've seen.

    Most of the "people" he is probably talking about would be, SMALL BUSINESS owners. You know the mom and pop types..

    But you idiots out there railing against people who make 250,000 probably don't give a shit about them either. They would be considered RICH in you eyes.

    I believe that the affluent upper middle class (of which I am not a member, I note) probably IS getting screwed when it comes to the rate of taxes they usually pay.

    Of course from the perspective of one making the median income for a worker in the USA (that's about $21,000 a year) somebody making $250K probably looks prety rich.

    But I've known truly "rich" folks.

    Believe me, they live on a different planet than we do.
