Obama's SOTU speech replete with appeals to you in the middle class to pick up the pitchforks and wildly attack those that have more money then you reminds me of those leaders in old movies that stirred the crowd to lynchings to violence. Instead of encouraging, Obama was divisive and worse yet totally dishonest! FACTS from the IRS tax returns show: Example of PLUMBERS!!! 11,087,123 Total returns for income reported $40,000 under $50,000 (Plumbers mean annual income $50,360) .

Total TAXES PAID per return $4,826 A TAXABLE RATE OF 9.2% on gross of $52,000! HEDGE Fund Managers assume they had net taxable income of $1 million!!! 321,294 total tax returns over $ 1 million at average of $10,483,240 per return Total tax payments actual receipts to IRS... $249,019,686,000 on gross income of $1,068,330,120,000 TAXES PAID by those evil wealthy people with $10 million + income??? 23.14% of Hedge fund manager gross income PAID IN TAXES BUT THIS grossly divisive PResident WHO earned $1.5 million he called for closing tax loopholes AND YET Obama TAKES over $100,000 a year in NET OPERATING LOSSES from stock losses!
