OK. So we fight them to the death on this issue. What happens? The Republicans get the blame as being the party of the rich. That’s just not so. The majority of millionaires and billionaires support and vote for the Democrats. It’s time to call the Democrat bluff. Go ahead and raise the rate on the rich. We’ll see if they keep supporting the Democrats. If I was a Republican legislator and this came up for a vote, I’d pull an Obama and vote “present”.
The truly rich, the trust funders and coupon clippers, the ones who vote Democrat, won't be affected a whit.
The entrepreneurs who actually run businesses -- and employ a sub-chaper S tax filing -- will be crushed.
Teresa Heinz doesn't hire people. The automobile dealers hire armies of people...if they can.
