I am actually changing my opinion on this and find myself agreeing with you. It is hard enough to protect the producers at the top end. It is near impossible if they won't help us help them. So, screw em' - for now. They are voting Democrat, so why are we protecting them again? It is always tough to defend the business and producer class against demagogues, near impossible if the people we are standing up for are stabbing us in the back. Let the tax rates rise on the wealthy until they come crawling back to conservatives begging for help.
There is a difference between being wealthy and being a "producer."
