Agree.

Does that make you feel better about yourself? Does Obama's plan raise your low self-esteem? When you look in the mirror in the morning before leaving your section 8 apartment to go lay in a gutter, does an anti-rich tax plan leave you with a toothless smile?

Do you have any proof that the author of the OP is indeed on Section 8? Hmmm, I suspect not. I bet you're not even a top income earner, just some dumb fucking red neck with a tin foil propeller hat on his head, rambling from his mom's basement. Oh know, the aaaarabs are coming, and right after that, the apocalypse, stock up on duck tape and canned food, oh no a black kid in a hoodie, maaa pass me my rifle (ummm, here's the nasty part, but this is how inbreeding happens), sonny boy, you'll have to get your cock out of me first. Yeee haaaa :)

Is this the part where I'm supposed to say; 'Actually, I live in a trac-housing metro, and is as middle class as they come, although I'm not a red neck.'

But Francis, hope with me, as I tell you your world view will start to change as your balls drop, your voice deepens, and you begin using your penis. You will start to see that the way you view the world, while honorable, is not based in reality. Liberal causes are noble, and through that nobility, you politically support politicians who use those noble causes to steal from the working and give to the lazy.

I think a more intelligent line of questioning on your part would have been more effective, but I will give you that I should have explained my reason for posting this link. I am not a fiscal conservative and actually do believe in a more equal income distribution. I would like to see a tax plan, which this is closer to than we currently have, that taxes the rich more and provides more tax breaks to lower income groups. This not only improves the quality of life of the lower income groups but also strengthens an economy by increasing consumer spending (lower income groups tend to spend more and save less--mostly out of necessity). Does that answer any of your questions?

makes most 50k -100k earners feel better though.. im sure the section 8 people dont even know whats goin on. nor care. when are you gonna figure out that your fighting the middle class not the poor? the poor could care less about anything going on cause it doesnt affect them..

Government wasting the earnings of better off people is justice, even if no one but government employees benefits. Just like when Obama, when confronted with data showing that higher capital gains rates don't end up raising money, didn't disagree, but said it was about "fairness". LOL. So saith liberals.
