Don't be fooled by statements like "Make the rich pay their 'fair share.'"
"Fair share" is the new buzz term for increasing federal income taxes on the rich.

That makes it sound as though finally taxing rich folk again as Clinton did will mean that they are paying their "fair share." Occupy can finally cease operation.

They will pay a little more, yes. But they will never, ever pay their "fair" share of U.S. taxes.

Please bear that in mind the next time that you hear the "fair share" meme.

1. I prefer: " Let's harvest the Rich."
We fattened them up nicely, so it's time to make the Bacon.

3. Restoring Clinton era tax rates is not nearly enough.


We are about to find out just how badly the American people will be betrayed.
