Eventually, if they’ve been screwed badly enough ~ left wanting or feeling disrepected in the morning ~ even disappointed vaginas figure it out.

The Mandate To Raise Taxes on the “Rich”

Within days of winning the election, President Obama announced that his victory gave him a mandate to raise taxes on the “rich.”

Come again? This was a two-and-a-half-point election. It reflected a painfully divided electorate. The only mandate I saw was to unite a divided country.

I voted for Obama. I voted for him because I know how hard it is to buy health insurance for a single person with even a minor pre-existing condition. In the case of my nanny/housekeeper/dear friend, it was gastritis. Thank God for Kaiser, which sold me the insurance that some years later saved her life when she was diagnosed with cancer. So call it what you will, but I did not want to see Obamacare repealed.

Years after I stopped worrying about unwanted pregnancies, I did not want to risk Roe v. Wade. I was appalled that contraception could even be an issue. I believe that whoever wants to marry should have a right to do so regardless of their sexual orientation. I voted for Obama because I worry about cutting back on environmental regulation. I voted for Obama because I believe local schools need help from the federal government, because I believe we are one country, and that if there is an earthquake in California, we will need as much help from our fellow states — which is to say the federal government — as New York and New Jersey do in dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. I voted for Obama because he ended the war in Iraq and is committed to ending the war in Afghanistan.

I did not vote for Obama because I think I am paying too little in taxes.

Poor darling. More’s the pity she got to take us all along on her tawdry little fling.

I feel dirty.

    I’m gobsmacked. She got an insurance carrier to cover her friend for a pre-existing condition, so now we need the feddul gummint to take care of everyone? She was appalled that contraception could be an issue – so who made it so? Team Obama, yes?

    See? Goofy me, Diptera. I thought Obama started the contraception brouhaha, too.

    What do we know?

    Another rube self identifies. The Big O has been yammering about making the “rich” pay their “fair share” for years. Didn’t this twit notice? Talk about the uninformed voter.

    One other thing she didn’t notice is Obama’s innumeracy. He thinks people earning $200k a year are millionaires and billionaires.

    I notice that 8 out of the 10 wealthiest counties in the US went for Obumbler. OK, they evidently want to be taxed at higher rates. Let us give them what they want. Let the Bush rates expire for those earning $1 million per year and above, and the rest of us can stay with the current rates. Figures I’ve seen indicate that Obama’s full request of increased tax rates on those earning $200k and above would bring in about $82 billion per year (using static analysis). In Obama’s trillion dollar deficits that’s just a rounding error, probably less that the handouts to Green (ie failed) energy companies each year.

    Oh, and index that $1 million figure for inflation, lest five years from now Joe Sixpack, earning 2012 equivalent of the national average annual income, isn’t thrust into tax rates meant (supposedly) for millionaires (cf Alternative Minimum Tax). That will also remove one incentive for the Fed to ramp up inflation, although not all, alas.

    I expect all those Dem millionaires and billlionaires will just evade the new taxes anyway, like Turbotax Timmy did.

    At least I didn’t have to actually hear Susan Estrus recite the contents of this column. I swear her voice could strip the varnish off a footlocker.

    Poor leftie — she’s getting smacked in the face with the dead fish labeled “reality”.

    I’d laugh, but this cretin is dragging us down with her.

    I’m sorry but only a liberal elitist could say “my nanny/housekeeper/dear friend” with a straight face. Patronizing.

    No reason for you to feel dirty because SHE needs a bath…
