In response to:

Higher Taxes on the Rich Mean Higher Taxes on the Rest of Us

Right on the money; it has taken me a few years to realize this. You elect a Republican, taxpayers get screwed by his buddies; you elect a Democrat, taxpayers get screwed by HIS buddies. It matters not whether you elect a Dem or Rep in Congress or the White House, taxpayers are going to get screwed, the only thing that changes is the group that steals from us.

President Obama repeatedly assures us that he only wants higher taxes on the rich as part of his class-warfare agenda.

But I don’t trust him. In part because he’s a politician, but also because there aren’t enough rich people to finance big government (not to mention that the rich easily can alter their financial affairs to avoid higher tax rates).

Honest leftists are beginning to admit that their real target is the middle class. Here are a few examples.
