    What a shock. Those are usually the same people who are so disconnected with the reality of scratching for a dollar they can afford the luxury of lofty, stupid, and unrealistic do-gooder ideals and have the spare time to sit and worry about the crap.

    Their taxes will be raised and they'll miss some caviar or a trip to Europe. The guy who makes $30k will be missing his mortgage payment.

    You got it.

    But this will not stop Democrats from calling Republicans the 'party of the rich.'

    Folks just don't get it. There is a reason the "rich" don't give a flying poo ... they know they wont be affected because they have already moved a lot of their wealth offshore.

    The same is true of corporations....google "corporate inversions" and you'll get the idea. There has been a HUGE spate of corporate inversions since just before 2002 and it continues to this day.

    So whats the objection to a higher tax rate for the rich...and just why is it after a tax cut directed at the rich there was a "spate" of corporate inversions off-shore? It sound like the tax rate is irrelevant...

    Yeah, it's $250,000, not $200,000, unless he changed it again. And the difference between people who make $200k and $250k is probably a lot.
