The hidden consequence of taxing the rich is that it won't make any difference at all respective to the financial condition of our country right now. It's simply another one of Obama's games engineered to keep us from seeing some other deceitful move that his administration is planning to make. Don't ever take for granted the amount of destruction this clown is willing to wreak on the citizens of this country. He doesn't care one bit for any of us... his marxist ideology is another consequence of his aloof and shallow character. The man has no honor what soever! He's pathologically UNABLE to tell the truth.
