they accuse him of "class warfare."

All he's asking is that the wealthiest Americans pay their fair share which means, at the very least, the same rate paid by the (upper) middle class.

And every time 0bama says it, someone should be right there to ask him to define fairness and ask him who gets to be the arbiter of fairness.

Fairness is a word 7-year-old's use when they're tagged out at first.

Almost 50% pay nothing, the other 50% carry the burden, you want fairness? everyone should pay something.

Fairness has nothing to do with it and you know it DUmmie. It is class warfare and it is slimey and tacky. Also, fairness isn't an economic plan, how infantile.

I shall steal a page from the DUmmy handbook, fairness is code for soaking the rich.
I also love how government spending is being called investments now.  :mental:

Fairness to Obama is taking half a trillion dollars away from the indigent and disabled that are on Medicaid and giving it to people who should be working for a living and buying their own insurance.

To Obama, fairness equals the minority paying for the majority. Kinda like slavery when the slaves did all the work for free and the owners got paid.

The tax rate for the wealthy IS at a higher rate than the upper middle class, you idiot.

Are you talking about how the wealthy pay a rate of 15% on capital gains?  Guess what?  So do the middle class and the poor.  Everyone who has capital gains pays 15%.

Besides, it's already been shown that raising the tax on the wealthy to 30%, as Dear Leader desires, will only produce an additional $5B in tax revenue, which is nothing.  That's because to the political left, it's about symbolism over substance, same as it ever was.

When Dear Leader realized that it was only $5B in increased revenue, he immedaitely said it wasn't about increasing revenue, it was about the wealthy paying their fair share.  IOW, it's an attempt to create class warfare.

You primitives are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo stupid!!!!!!!!!

That isn't all he's asking for. I specifically recall asking the Russians for "more space" to **** us over.

No, it's at 35%. He's wanting to raise it to 39%.
