Or are the "rich" the only ones who have any responsibility to foot the bill for Obama's big plans?
Change, change, change... that's all YOU will have left...
Put aside for a moment the fact that Obama and Biden's definition of "rich" has slowly crept down from those who make $300,000 to $250,000 to $200,000 to $150,000.
And Friday, New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, an Obama campaign surrogate, declared the figure to be $120,000. If Obama and Biden are elected who knows how low the figure will be by the time they are inaugurated?
Obama promised to "spread the wealth" and soak the rich while promising an array of goodies to 95% of Americans whether they pay income taxes or not. But there is a contradiction here. Readers will recall that Joe Biden said it's "patriotic" to pay higher taxes. Today, Obama said that "selfishness" motivated those who oppose the higher taxes necessary to fuel his socialist revolution.
Are Obama and Biden suggesting that those they exempt from any responsibility to pay for Obama's massive government expansion are selfish and unpatriotic?
How long will it be before the middle class is called on to make the same patriotic sacrifice?
