    Obama keeps repeating this phrase "Strengthen The Middle-Class" but he never says what it is he's doing.

    Does he think raising taxes will do this, because that's all he seems to be doing.

    No he hasn't. Tax rates have remained the same. Tax breaks have been taken away in fact, effectively raising taxes on us.

    I know evey year my taxes have gone up, and I am "middle class".

    This looks to be a perfect thread candidate for the Clean Zone.

    If one buys into the belief that bringing down others helps you out, I guess its possible to see he has helped the middle class.

    He has kept the poor people poor, unemployment very high for minorities, keeping them out of the middle class.

    I don't believe in that ideology though, but I suppose the Hussein followers could argue that point.

    my first question is how does OBama define the middle class, if he redefined the rich how does he see the middle class?

    Obama disdains and dislikes the American middle class.....which is really defined by anybody who wants to make his own living and live independently from the government.....

    marxists need to destroy the middle class in order to have their revolutions and gain power over the people......to do this they create a large malleable lower class which they keep in line by doling out welfare goodies....

    He sees them as a huge source of revenue.

    It is important to remember that mindless deficit spending by the Federal government is a heavy burden on middle America, and is most insidious in that it is only realized well after the perpetrators are long gone.

    That will come as quite a shock to every employer who has followed the IRS guidance to reduce payroll taxes by 2 points.
