... the president’s definition of wealthy is a little shaky. It turns out that the “millionaires” he refers to in his speeches are actually individuals earning $200,000 per year and couples earning $250,000 — about 2.5 million Americans. While $250,000 is a lot of money in many areas of the country, in high-cost regions such as New York City that earning category would include a teacher with 22 years of service married to a police captain. The president’s definition of “rich” would also include some 750,000 independent and small businesses that do not pay income taxes as businesses; instead, their taxes are paid through the owners’ individual tax returns. We are not exactly talking Warren Buffett here.I THINK AMERICANS WHO HAVE BEEN WORKING HARD THE LAST 4 YEARS - AND WHOSE INVESTMENTS HAVE PROBABLY BEEN TREADING WATER - DESERVE THEIR MONEY MORE THAN THE SPENDTHRIFT POLITICIANS.

THE CAREER POLITICIANS NEED TO CUT SPENDING 10 DOLLARS FOR EVERY DIME THEY RAISE IN TAXES.
