Absurd lies. ReTHUGlicans are the ones dividing the country on the basis of class, race, and ethnicity.

Whatever it takes, although I doubt reTHUGlicans would support anything remotely like redistribution of wealth...:)

You use those fake issues to divide the country, yes. You're anti-affirmative action, lie about hate crimes legislation, conducted a war on women, engage in class warfare (against the poor), and want to give granny a toss along with SS and Medicare.

This is news?:)

Well almost. The Senate is controlled by the Democrats and Harry Reid. They did not bring one single budget to a vote in 4 years. Why would they change now?

THREE years. And why not be more bipartisan? Plenty of reasons to hate the jobs BOTH parties have done in BOTH houses of Congress.

You better pay attention, because these are all Democrat charges and issues. It's Democrats who strive to divide the country--not Republicans.

Okay, so who is it that is targeting a certain group of people to make his constituents happy? That's right, DumBama. He's been on this kick to get even with rich people the last three years. And who does he promote this hatred to? The people likely to vote for him.

Fact is that DumBama's plan would only net us 80 billion dollars per year. We spend more than that on food stamps in this country. So we all know taxing couples that make over 250k will do little to nothing for our financial problems. It's just that it makes Democrat voters happy whether it will help or hurt the economy.

Hate Republicans, hate big business, hate big pharma, hate oil companies, Republicans want to see all you old people die, Republicans want to see you unemployed starve, Republicans want to see you have dirty air and dirty water, Republicans are against DumBama exclusively because he's black and not because of his policies, Republicans have a war on women because they don't think government should force insurance companies into providing birth control, the list goes on and on.

Why? Tell us what happened the last two times we had an all one-party government in the WH, Congress and Senate?

In an election that often focused on debates about class warfare, President Barack Obama was favored over multimillionaire businessman Mitt Romney in eight of the nation's 10 wealthiest counties.

And his margin of victory in all eight counties was greater than that of the national vote, in which Obama was leading by 50 percent to 48 percent with 97 percent of precincts reporting.
The findings are based on a CNBC.com analysis of Census Bureau numbers on average annual household income from 2006-2011 and results from Tuesday's elections.

How many wealthy people do you know and hear complain about Obama's policies?

Especially over the last 3 years as their wealth has multiplied?

The only people who are complaining are those who are unemployable, broke and have nothing invested in the Markets. 8 of the 10 wealthiest counties in America votes for Obama over Romney

You seem to be repeating the nonsense and lies distributed by Stooge TV.

Where did you do the research for your opinion?

That is strange, considering Democrats have a very diverse following that represents accurately America's many differences and preferences. And the Republican party following is rather monolithic.
