When confronted on the issue that taxing the rich more would result in less tax revenue, his response was basically that he didn't care, it was a matter of "fairness". So let me get this straight. He knows that by "soaking it to the rich" the government will receive less from the rich - but he calls this "fair". So what he's saying is that he wants to force the rich to take their profits offshore, just as FDR did - and thus prolong the economic misery for the rest of us, just as FDR did. FDR got elected 4 times to continue his failed policies. I hope the voters are smart enough not to repeat the current fiasco for another term. Thankfully O's limited to two terms.

FDR got re-elected by spending stimulus money in the swing states creating jobs for the unemployed only in those states. As soon as the election was over, those jobs disappeared. The next election the people had caught on, but FDR bribed state governments some what like Obama did in passing Obamacare when he gave waivers to certain states or promised Federal money to other states. Those who couldn't be bought off he sic'd the IRS on them.

By FDR'S 4th election he used fear, intimidation, cheating and favors to get the electoral college to vote for him. After his death the congress quickly passed a bill restricting Presidents to 2 terms. Both Democrats and Republicans favored that change.

They were hired by the government like Obumber is the lawyers in the DOJ are doing--watching porn all day(this is a fact). He has hired thousands and the salaries are large compared to the private sector. IT IS THE INDEPENDENTS WHO WILL RE-ELECT THIS PRESIDENT..THEY ARE ALWAYS ON THE FENCE!
We have heard many times from President Barack Obama how he plans to raise taxes on "millionaires and billionaires," but not on the middle class. Apparently, if you don't happen to be a millionaire or billionaire, you don't have to worry.

But the numbers say otherwise -- and say so big time.

The actual tax increase plans being proposed by Obama do not start with people who have an income of a million dollars a year. They start with people with incomes of $250,000 and up.

That is more than most people make, but it...
