That group pays the most taxes, carries most of the tax burden in the country, uses their money to employ us, pay for our health benefits, and they get nothing in return from the government except they are evil and must pay up even more of what they already shoulder. And they don't qualify for welfare handouts.

Failure of a topic

Family of 4 making 30K shouldn't be a family of 4.

A lot of people are making less than they used to make. Would you suggest they give up one of their children for adoption if they aren't making a certain amount of money?

The wealthy do suffer more than any other group-----they suffer from the anxiety of where to shift their millions to avoid the recessionary cycle------they suffer more from deciding if they should trust Barons, the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, or the Beancounter Journal.

Being wealthy means you have to sort through scammers on a daily basis----do I trust Bernie Madoff ----where can I still earn a 10 percent return rather than the peons investment return of four or five percent.

Being wealthy means you have to suffer through rumors of jaded tax rebates expiring, cancellation of shady depreciation allowances, and God forbid having to fork over taxes on grandpas thirty mill inheritance----yikes too much intolerance and pressure for the big bucks folks.

Being wealty means you have to suffer when the price of gold drops a nickel, or when the rate for bonds in Sardinia goes down.

Yes now I do truly get it------McConnel is correct----the wealthy agonizingly suffer a lot more than commoners-----oh my.

He is not lying inthat thyey have loss the most moeny i this recession. Justas Obama is not lying in that he has created milions of jobs . But then they can affors it more and one days work is what most think is creatig a job. I guess you could Clinton started it by saying he didn't inhale when his marijuana smoking came out and of course she did not have sexaul relations with that woman. he then said i did lie;I don't consider oral sex;a sexual realtion.That si politcal correctness for yousicne then.
