What this translates to is that the middle class needs to be burdened still more heavily in order to support society’s parasites.

A gentle reminder to all FReepers that if you see a story on The Drudge Report, that story has already been posted here at least two times.

here’s a thought and I’m no where near rich infact I’m just a poor blue collar working class but if they want to pay more tax then let them.

So how about Clinton , bozo and the other left wing kooks?
You sign over that massive house you live in, give me some of that millions you have.

After all Brazil does it and they’re doing good.

Anyone can look at our graduated tax schedule and see that Clinton is not only a stupid Marxist, but a liar.

"To her, rich americans means anybody making more than $90,000"

It's not that high, have your child try to get a subsidized student loan if you make over 60 or 70K. That is just one area and there are many others. I'm not big on any of the subsidized programs but the phase out start very low.

which of the two Clinton mansions is Mrs Rodham donating to the poor?

I remember when this classless greedy woman threw herself a housewarming shower when her husband left the WH, and had “silver asparagus tongs” on the list of suggested gifts.

Next thing you know she will be accused of saying....

“Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you. We’re saying that for America to get back on track, we’re probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”

Do the Clintons still write off their underwear when they file taxes?

Hillary still owes money for her campaign expanses.

Those Accounts Payable have not yet been cleared.

Last figure I heard was $177,000.
