    Of course they are. Because they never understand that wealth is a relative term. In a few years, those who think taxes should be raised on the wealthy will be wealthy themselves as relative wealth is revised downward.

    Wealthy used to be a million or more dollars a year. Now it's $250,000 a year. In five years it will be $50,000 a year.

    I was unaware that you could poll what sound policy is. Silly me, i thought looking at facts was much more important than how people feel.

    This is a very dangerous mindset that can only destroy our capitalist system. Most people will live to regret this as we become a stale and dead country.

    Wow... a majority of people who probably do not make 250K favor raising taxes on others who do make 250+K so that those others can pay for shit while they don't

    Color me shocked

    We need to bring those millions of working class tweeners back on to the tax paying ranks who were lopped off by the Bush tax cuts.


    Else, they will continue voting for free handouts (democrat).

    Human nature.
