The Rich have feelings Too

Democrats' New Worry: Their Own Rich Voters - "A group of Democrats elected in recent years from some of the country's richest congressional districts have emerged as a stumbling block to raising taxes on the wealthy to pay for President Barack Obama's ambitious health-care overhaul just as the plan has begun to meet increasing resistance over its cost. Friday, two freshmen representatives -- Dina Titus, from suburban Las Vegas, and Colorado's Jared Polis, representing Boulder, Vail and some of the tonier suburbs of Denver -- joined Republicans to vote against Mr. Obama's top-priority health-care overhaul when it faced a vote in their House Education and Labor Committee. One reason was a one-percentage point-surtax on couples earning between $350,000 and $500,000 -- gradually increasing to 5.4 percentage points on earnings more than $1 million -- to pay for it." We are making a country of poor people. What say you? Are you better off today than just 6 months ago? The Rich have feelings even with less money in their pockets.

  1. Class warfare will lower the bar for everybody. People need to put away their hate and envy. Pick up themselves and figure out how to build a better mousetrap if they want to be rich. THAT is the American Way. The rest of this stuff is pure communism.
