Excuse me, while I'm not rich, most of them worked to earn it.

So, when are you going to give up your home to someone who doesn't have one?

What a snotty elitist republican attitude!


I think repubs scream about jealousy becaise it's like hate, they wallow in it and think everyone is like them.

It doesn't have to do with jealousy, it has to do with looking around at what is happening to the U.S. and the world...didya notice there's a slight economic problem???

Bush gave the upper 1.5% a huge tax break that some of them even said they didn't need!!!!!

Pay attention:


IT DID NOT TRICKLE DOWN.


IF it TRICKLED DOWN, there wouldn't be so many people OUT OF WORK.


The uber wealthy do NOT create jobs, they store their money because they have NO reason to create jobs.


and they DIDN'T.

Obama will once again make the rich pay their fair share, and to reverse the massive distribution of wealth from the middle-class to the rich that occurred during the Bush administration..

This is change we can believe in!!!

Believe it when your job might be gone...so far the people you call rich (making over $ 250 K) are the ones who provide the jobs....you will realize it later just as your Messiah and the rest of the zombies will find out....

GOOD GAWD! WHEN will you actually LISTEN to Obama instead of whining and mewling and puking so much you can't learn a damn thing.

Obama is taking back the huge tax cut bushpig gave his BASE...the haves and have mores! The upper 2% of the population, the wealthiest....


NOT people making 250,00 a year...that is not RICH.

It's small and medium sized COMPANIES that create JOBS....NOT the uber wealthy who STORE their wealth.

Bad news for you Mr. Bob - there ain't that many rich people left. The ones that are left are either sitting in Congress or are best buds with Congress. And we all know those folks don't pay taxes - LOL.

This grand announcement is coming out today? Just watch the Dow....

NO, they did NOT work to earn it....not the upper 2%...all they have to do is sit on it and it makes billions...this is old money, it was inherited, NOT earned, not worked for.

People, like Bush,Jr., never would have to work a day in their lives and would still be billionaires.....and I'm not sure the Bush's are even IN the upper 2%....yet.

It's OK, wait til all these cheer leadera watch their utilities sky rocket from the new taxes Obama is laying on the carbon for each utility company. So if you are sitting there cheering as the "rich" get raked over the coals, you better get ready because you will pay too.

Oh and smokers cigs are going up .65 cents a pack on April 1

This is going to do nothing but cost jobs. Not that that will effect many Obama supporters.
