Not entirely true. The REAL 1% benefit as in communist and socialist countries. President Obama is actually one of these. Example: Of course he is against everyone owning guns, He is protected by well armed body guards. Another: The Congress exempts itself from being in the pool for Health Care. THEY get a private system paid for by the taxpayer. Sounds like China and the old Soviet Union to me. No wonder they like centrally run countries so much. They have much in common.

South Carolina’s James Clyburn, the third ranking Democrat in the House, appeared overwhelmed with joy. He proclaimed:

“So here we are on New Year’s night, with the clock running out on the very existence of this Congress, finally considering bipartisan legislation to provide middle class tax cuts, require the wealthiest to, once again, pay their fair share so we can grow the economy, create jobs and protect the most vulnerable in our society.”

The twenty-year House veteran appeared convinced that deal crafted less than 24 hours earlier satisfied President Obama’s “fair share” campaign promise.

Mr. Clyburn was not alone, though. Moments...
