DUH,taxing "the rich" would only cover 8 days of the current spending levels.
That is NOT why they want to "tax the rich".
It's "redistribution of wealth",to drag down the well-off because of ENVY.
you idiots FELL for their bait and switch;
Comrade Obama talked about taxing millionaires and billionaires,but now it's down to taxing the $250K and up brackets.
And you further fail to see that the real tax burden is going to fall on the brackets UNDER that $250K level.
