Typical lame brain thnking. How do very highly paid (millions per year) professional athletes, entertainers, top lawyers, top doctors, congressmen and congresswomen worth millions contribute to the job market? Maybe some do for household help and no doubt many of them are illegals. Ann, how do you contirbute to the job market?

When Ann buys things or when Ann saves money and the money is then invested in project that will grow the economy. Ann has also written books. You do not seem to have basic essential knowledge perhaps you ought to read an economics book.

Wow, your ignorance is amazing. You just don't understand the very basics of Economics. Assuming you work for a living and are not on government dole, how do you yourself "contribute to the job market"? How do you bring "value" to the market that others are willing to pay for? You should sometimes take a moment to think about these questions and try to answer them because if you were actually making those kinds of statements in front of people you would come across looking very stupid.

If there is any "Typical lame brain thnking" here, it is not with Ann Coulter. Yes, jobs are created by doctors (ever been to a medical practice?), by lawyers (ever been to a law office?), even athletes (ever been to a collectors' show?) and entertainers (ever seen their entourage, their fan clubs, their agent staffs, etc?). Simple fact - the more people have, the more they spend (even on employees). while the more you take from them, the less they have to spend (even on employees). Besides, there are MANY more small business owners than there are professional athletes, etc. Don't focus on the fly speck instead of on the pepper shaker.

Worry about your OWN contributions; quit taking ANY deductions and hand all of your pay check over to the government, THEN you can open that cess pit of a mouth and spew your garbage.

Republicans have been forced into a Hobson's choice of either letting the Bush tax cuts expire for everyone or agreeing to a tax hike on the top 2 percent of income earners (not to be confused with "the rich," who have already made, inherited or married their money).

If Republicans object to the Democrats' hitting job creators with a tax hike, three things will happen: Taxes will go up for everyone; Republicans will be seen as the "party of the rich"; and the inevitable economic collapse will be blamed on Republicans.

If Democrats were merely trying to raise...
