Oh broher. Spin away!! Message however you want. We will remind the American people how you want to turn Medicare into a voucher system ....oh I mean cut spending...and how you want to privatize social secularity..oh I mean cut you want to creat jobs...oh I mean keep tax cuts for the record breaking profit corporations who are not creating jobs as we speak despite making those record profits and squeezing wages. You are against everything the American people want.

It does not matter what you remind the fools of. In the end the cash is flow is going to stop and reality is going to come crashing down. The USA is not a bubble and the world economy is in dire straits.

Our large debt is going to kill this country's economy and you and your ilk just keep on asking for more as if it will have no consequences.

All you socialist/liberal/progressive/democrats want is cradle-to-grave government running of your lives. At what point, moron, do we rob so much from the rich that they stop being rich. Then genius, we make a new class of 'rich.' They used to be called middle class. Now we tax them to death. Then what pissant? GROW UP AND GET A BRAIN!

What the American people want is more and more free stuff paid for by someone else. It is not a matter of being "against" this feeling so much as merely pointing out the fact it will lead to ruin.

You must be new. Catch up and you will see who does the insulting and denigrating. Byebarry knows what I'm talking about and so do most of the regulars on here. I've been here longer then most.

But by all means, let's keep obsessing over tax increases on rich people, which would take care of roughly eight percent of this year's federal deficit -- at best.   Let's take a peek at the data itself, then discover how Politico chose to boil it down into a narrative-driving headline:

Your headline? "Battleground Poll: Hike Taxes on the Rich."  Don't get me wrong; there is no...
