A couple years ago MD decided to have a millionarie's tax ($400,000--I am not sure what the left does not understand about the word "million") and found it produced no money, and there were almost no millionaires in MD. They were in DE. Clinton and his wise *sses decided to punish "the rich" by extra taxes on yachts and KILLED the entire boating and marina industry in the US, and produced no new revenue. These people are insane, as they do over and over (do they not see the USSR is dead and Europe is dying?) the same stupid, losing, counter-productive idiocy year after yea.

Missed the tongue and cheek I guess I'm tired from my eighteen holes and the club.

President Obama and the Democrats have made a cottage industry of peddling "tax hikes for the rich" as the way out of the fiscal crisis precipitated by ObamaCare and other profligate spending.  

But with reports and polling showing that upper income spending has fallen since the beginning of September, the country may have a chance to see that "tax hikes for the rich" are not as costless as the administration and Democrats want Americans to believe.

The "rich" are pulling back in anticipation of tax increases coming down the pike in 2013.  As a result, it looks like they...
