You're a business owner (at least you claim to be) How do you feel about it? Will it affect you and your business?

You never answered my question: If Obama is for the middle-class American then why didn’t he reduce the tax burden for the middle-class? How does raising taxes on the higher wage earners HELP THE MIDDLE-CLASS?

Raising the minimum wage would be a net gain to me. One quarter of my employees are professionals with advanced degrees. Their salaries will not be affected at all. The rest are already working at way above minimum wage. My clients wil, over all have more income to spend . It's a big plus for me. When the other car manufacturers were paying about two dollars a day for their workers Henry Ford shocked the world by paying his employees five dollars a day. And he helped create the American middle class which became the envy of the world. The social Darwinists who you support would like to drag us back to industrial revolution days. where the very few get fantatstically rich while the rest live in a proletarian hell. I couldn't sleep at night if I made someone work all day for a wage that forced them into grinding poverty. WWJD?

LOL right… No affect what so ever.

Too scared to answer my question? I guess I called you out on that one.

Who created the middle-class? Henry Ford NOT government.

Still holding a grudge against the rich? Why do they work less than you? My guess is the outwork you ten fold.

“I couldn't sleep at night if I made someone work all day for a wage that forced them into grinding poverty. WWJD?” Well then it’s a good thing your aren’t government

Still with the LOLs huh? It makes you sound like a school girl. Well, maybe you are. WTF are you talking about "too scared to answer your question"? I answered one. Now here goes the other. I wasn't under the impression that Obama also raised taxes on the middle class. But, if that turns out to be the case I wouldn't be a bit surprised. We are trying to pay off a humungous national debt. Of course taxes will go up. They went up numerous times under Reagan and again with Bush one. Did that qualify them as Commies? You just don't seem too knowledgeable about anything. Which makes you a perfect Tea Party Whackadoodle> LOL sic?

And look at you with the "WTF".

So your answer is that Obama doesn't care and fight for the middle-class like he says he does. You know as well as I do that his tax hikes won't go to paying down a thing.

Any socialist policies passed by republicans or democrat is still a socialist policy and big government isn't the answer and health care isn't a right it's personal responsibility.

Now you sound like your idiot brother. The one who likes to pretend that he is me. The same one who likes to put words in other's mouths. When did I say that Obama doesn't care for the middle class? His tax hikes will pay down a little. You need to stop getting your information from right wing pundits. They are lying shills for the people that are raping the American middle class. I watched this same minimum wage increase debate go on back when Clinton was in office. The republitards swore up and down it would destroy the economy. Guess waht Biff? It didn't hurt business at all. In fact we had a boom. What you fail to understand is that the government has been paving the way for all the wealth to go to the top five %. for decades. Both Repubicans and Dems. The real redistribution of wealth already happened. it all went to the top. You have allowed yourself to become a stooge for the bad guys. They did this by appealing to your tendency to self rightosness One of the deadly sins.In my opinion the worst.

From where the middle-class sits, you’re the dope.
Now go kiss your mom with that mouth.
Our president doesn’t care about the middle-class.
Yes. Investment in education, by helping middle class kids go to college. Investment in rebuilding America's decaying infrastructure, by employing middle class construction workers, carpenters, and engineers. Investing in our schools, by employing more middle class school teachers to ease overcrowding in schools attended by middle class kids.

And the Republican Party agenda? Cut taxes on rich assholes.

Maybe if your answers were more clear instead of incoherent and one long jumbled paragraph with ideas all over the place.

Here’s a hint: Wealth goes to the top because they work hard for it despite government and you’re the dullard that keeps purchasing goods and services on credit… No wonder why the rich are rich.

Government official are the same… They don’t care about you or me… Power and money is their game, more so than the private sector. You’ve been duped.

So we don't need bridges? Or highways? Or airports? Or public water systems? Or sewer systems?

Let's cut taxes on rich assholes, and a bridge will magically appear!

Please tell me how eliminating taxes will rebuild public highways.

As for a "failing school system", how the f.ck were hundreds of millions of Americans educated, you idiot? I'm guessing you were home-schooled, numb nuts.

Oh, here's some empirical information on your tax cuts for the rich. But by all means, please don't let actual empirical data interfere with your extreme right wing lunacy: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/13/high...

“So we don't need bridges? Or highways? Or airports? Or public water systems? Or sewer systems?” Are these the only parts of our economy?

“Please tell me how eliminating taxes will rebuild public highways.” Historically a reduction of tax rates for EVERYONE has caused economic growth and increases in revenues…
But you’re an egalitarian, so you don’t care about growth. Especially when you cite leftist articles that state “the lower tax rates in place since 2001 have had a strong impact on increasing income inequality in America.” THAT’S what you’re about. Government control over everyone’s income to make it EQUAL.
That’s not the American Dream.
That being said: Please tell me how raising taxes on the rich helps the middle-class deal with their tax hikes?
You won’t answer.

As for Education: What do we rank in the world? We produce people like you and you call that educated. What a joke. Then you’re only answer is “let’s give the failing system more money!”? So progressive!

Guess what, pal. ALL Americans are EQUAL and that equality is given to them by God not government.

TRy to follow along. We did NOT go into this recession because of Liberals. That's a lie. The banking industry pays huge sums of money to sociapathic A.M. radio shock jocks to repeat the same rediculous lies over and over. It's called propaganda. Actually brainwashing. You've been had. Personally I don't much care for most liberals. I worked in academia years ago and hated the atmosphere. Why does banks and other big businesses pay so much to get this propaganda out? Because they want to have the power over Washington so that they can rewrite the laws whenever and however they want. Before you pop off with your mindless "leftist" accusations, keep in mind that this is also the opinion of almost all non partisan economists. And also the opinion of Ben Bernanke, even Alan Greenspan has now said as much. Glenn beck would say that is just part of the nefarious left wing plot. He is a shill for the modern day robber barons who are screwing this country. And you are being a stooge. No charge , this lesson is free. Stop believing in Bullsh#t and start thinking.

The Community Reinvestment act did play a small part in the housing crisis. But, the truth is the banks through greed, irresponsibility, and malfeasance ran the world economy off a cliff. Just because sociapathic right wing shock jocks keep repeating something doesn't make it true. All you areis a parot for Glenn Beck and Rush limbaugh. And they are already recognized as the Judas goats of the G.O.P. The Republican party is desperately trying to find a way to throw those losers under the bus. In ten years no one will even admit that they had anything to do with the Tea Party or the rest of the troglodytes. Obama is well on his way to a great legacy. Maybe you missed the election Pal! BTW Wait until the party of stupid tries to tangle with Hillary and Bill. That will be a hoot!
