    Why does discussing tax policy make someone a class warefarist?

    Is it simply that anyone who wants to raise the upper tax brackets hates the rich - and everyone else is alright?

    It's the hatred of the rich, free markets and capital that's the dead giveaway

    Whenever govt starts to do without and live within a budget then we can talk. Otherwise, screw 'em. Why should I be inclined to give more when govt is responsible for endless wars, never ending entitlements, social engineering, growing itself, etc. Really, screw the hell out 'em.

    Is anyone here stupid enough to believe it will stop with taxing the rich more?

    Anyone?

    Inherently, it does not.

    But, when you take 'raise taxes on the rich' and add the idea that 'hey need to pay their fair share' and something similar to 'so we can pay for all of the entitlements for the old/poor/sick', you then move into the realm of class warfare.

    You have unmasked Obama's Re-election strategy.

    All he has. His policies have failed...so he has to call for more taking of wealth becuase he doesn't think he's thrown enough money at it...the Federal Government isn't in full control yet...

    Can YOU show where that has happened? And DON'T confuse it with those of us paying the bills getting tired of carrying people that are quite able to DO for themselves...but won't for whatever reason/excuse.
