The Master of Chump Change

Obama is once again giving new meaning to the term "chump change." Quoth the Socialist Messiah:

"Well, right now,[those making at least $250,000] are getting taxed at 36 percent. Under Bill Clinton in the 1990s, they were being taxed at 39.6 percent. You are talking

about a 3.6 percent difference, and for the average person who is making half a million, a million dollars that's chump change, that's nothing."

At $250,000, an additional 3.6% isn't chump change. It's an extra $9,000 that goes to the federal government on top of what they already take. That money could go to the

college funds for his own children, or get invested in businesses that create jobs, or just get spent and create even more jobs for others in the community. Instead, it will

go to Washington DC, get filtered through ever-growing bureaucracies, and perhaps a tenth of it will actually go to any purpose if that.

But from the point of view of the massive government Obama promises to bloat, the $thousands you sweat for are just drops in a fetid ocean of waste.
