There is plenty of overblown rhetoric from the nanny media and the Democrats, who say the Republicans favor the rich.
It's a classic example of the hypocrisy of the left, on at least two levels.
First, while behind the scenes, out of the public eye. They had been dishing out billions of dollars to favored banks and second, private American companies as well.
Talking about overblown - it is truly the new era of fuzzy math when a couple making $125,000 a year each are taxed at rates that are said to apply to "millionaires and billionaires."
The measure is a classic example of genuine liberals greasing the squeaky wheel in favor of their big tax agenda, while taxpayers unaware of what's going down - are slowly, oh, so slowly, about to lose everything.
