But the ones who make less than 250,000 a year complain.

Either:

A. Because they understand that they are in a position that is much better than most people in the country and they do not mind paying a little bit more in comparison to what they get to keep to, hopefully, increase the quality of life for those less fortunate

or

B. Because they don’t pay attention and don’t really care what happens.

    Did you know that Oprah only lives in California 99 days a year, so that she doesn’t have to pay the high taxes?References :

  2. Stereotypemebecauseyouknow says:

    If you think only the wealthy will be taxed when the government now owes $14 trillion, you need to have your head examined. These people have so much money that it will never effect them, and they also make more money by playing the Hollywood game and being a good, Liberal soldier.

    The Democrats have you believing that by taking 15% of your income annually in exchange for Medicare and Social Security that they are protecting you. Take 15% of 50K (average wage) for 40 years and stuff it into a retirment plan and you would have a min of $1,700,000, but instead you get 25K a year from Social Security and save 12K a year in Health Ins. Do the math. The interest alone on the $1.7 Million will give you a larger wage than you ever made in any single year.

    Problem is, most people are too uneducated to understand how they are getting ripped off.References :

  3. Anthony says:

    Liberals do not tax wealthy people. Liberals give tax examptions to wealthy people, like electric golf cart $3000 tax credit

    Liberals tax middle class.References :

    Because they realize that you have to spend money to make money. It hurts their bank account too when the economy is in bad shape. Like Henry Ford said you can’t sell a car to your employees if they can’t afford it.References :
