The young people in the ad look dissatisfied and pouty. Barack Obama's voice and the words "winning the future," from one of his old campaign speeches, echo in the background.

LOL!!!
To the contrary, I'm not jealous of the wealthy, I just think as does the vast majority of America, that they should pay their fair share of taxes, and stop trying to screw everybody.
That can work both ways, you know. You as a wealthy individual probably don't want your waiter dropping a hock-up in your iced tea, or your stockbroking order taker losing you money because you're noting but an unapologetic elitist.
All sorts of ways at stickin' it to the man.

We do.

Returning to 70% marginal rates over a base cap is when we had the greatest period of employment in America.

So we'll go with what works and is proven.

Get ready, Fascists, it's coming, or you'll get the blame for the next stage in our decline as a nation- anarchy.

Either way, you're gonna pay.

After spending months touting the Obama administration's decision to loan $535 million to the California solar energy upstart Solyndra, top officials took a new tack Wednesday while testifying before Congress about the company's abrupt shut-down and bankruptcy: the loan, they said, was actually the Bush administration's idea.

(Obama claimed he awas "duped".)
On August 2, Obama declared that Republican policies caused the recession.
(It is ironic that as candidate for president, Obama had all the answers to cure everything that ails us as a nation but now, as our president, he has none.)
Obama has suggested that blame for the stagnant U.S. economy lies in places other than the Oval Office. The latest example occurred Monday, when the president said, "There will always be economic factors that we can't control, earthquakes, spikes in oil prices, slowdowns in other parts of the world.”
The only "squeeling" I hear going on is coming from the Oval Office,...not from Congress.
MORE MISINFORMATION BY OBAMA.

Bush approved the loans program in general for good businesses to help the economy. He did not specifically push Solyndra.

Obama was warned by his advisors that Solyndra was selling their products for $3 while costing $7 to make. He was also warned that the Solyndra cash flow would run out exactly in Sept 2011. His 2008 campaign donor private venture capitalist visited the WH several times. So did Solyndra. At no time was Bush present, nor does Bush have a hotline to Obama's office in regular matters. Yet, Obama pushes the line that Bush DID IT TO HIM. Obama is an Uncle Tom I guess if he listens to Bush in the face of obvious facts. Is he or is he not a graduate of Harvard??? It's embarassing for a man to act like a victim, claiming other people made him do it.

Obama Hinges Re-election on Class Warfare

It is surprising that the president still uses the word “everyone.” Everyone is nothing more than a euphemism. If everyone were paying their fair share, it stands to reason that the 47 percent of Americans who pay no income taxes at all would be asked to contribute some percentage of income taxes to the upkeep of the country. As for “fair share,” IRS data reveals that the top 1% of earners pay 38% of all federal taxes and the top 5% pay 58% of all federal taxes.

Yet that didn’t stop the president from proposing the Buffett Tax, which calls for a 4.5 percent surtax on people making $1 million or more. It was named after billionaire investor Warren Buffett, who wrote an editorial for The New York Times bemoaning the fact that he pays taxes at the lower capital gains rate of 15 percent, while regular Americans are subjected to higher income tax rates. One day later, MSNBC political commentator Patrick Buchanan challenged the Oracle of Omaha.“I’m a little fed up with these people who come on, you know, their big op-eds, all these admonitions,” said Buchanan.“Why doesn’t he set an example and send a check for $5 billion to the federal government? He’s got about $40 billion.”

Oddly enough, Buffett did make a $5 billion contribution — to Bank of America, which yielded a profit of $280 million in 24 hours. There have been no reports of Mr. Buffett making any voluntary contributions to the public fisc to date.

Yet even Buffett Tax rhetoric could not obscure the reality that a substantial portion of the president’s proposed $1.5 billion dollars in tax increases on “millionaires and billionaires” would come from repealing the Bush-era tax cuts for couples making $250,000 or more. Why that particular level? Once again, IRS data reveals that 4.4 million American households earn more than $200,000, while only 319,000 families report $1 million or more of income earned. In other words, that’s where the bulk of the revenue is.

FACT CHECK: Are rich taxed less than secretaries?

The 10 percent of households with the highest incomes pay more than half of all federal taxes. They pay more than 70 percent of federal income taxes, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

JUST TO BE CLEAR:

This means the bulk of the revenue come from 4.1 million American households and businesses making between 200K-1M. If you knew the cost of living in most states and the cost of operations for small businesses to maintain and grow their businesses, you'd know Obama is UNFAIRLY CALLING THE MAJORITY OF MIDDLE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS WHO ARE MOST AFFECTED "MILLIONAIRES".

Nothing could be less fair than Obama's Tax theft. And then for that tax money to go to his private venture capitalist crony who donates to his crony campaign, makes its wholly unacceptable.

Grow up, loser.

The Reich can only resort to school yard bullying when they can't debate, and have no argument.

Losers, hypocrites, frauds and felons ARE the Rethuglican Reich.
