The government could take every cent that the top 2% of the wealthiest money and you know they would disposses far more democrat supporters than republican supporters. That's why they use the cleaverly dishonest phrase to tax the income over 250,000/year and call them the wealthiest. Most of those wealthy inherited their fortune, and may or may not make 250,000/ year. If they were taxing multi,illion dollar vacations, Obama would be broke himself.

Can you imagine the outrate of Buffett if he had an 8% total wealth tax levied on him? Or Kerry and Paul Allen?

But without an honest media, the schlubs with their obamaphones will never get it.

The Republicans offered a plan -- in writing -- to avoid the "fiscal cliff." It includes $800 billion in revenue increases, which demonstrates the GOP's reluctant assent to increasing the tax burdens on Americans.  The White House has rejected the proposal out of hand.

The sheer audacity of the President's last proposal shows that Obama sees this as the opening salvos of 2014.  Republicans need to do a better job explaining their position in a way that will allow them to make a strong case for themselves (and for electing more of them) in 2014.

To that end, here are...
