So I guess we're now counting an $800 billion tax increase as a cut now? More Democrat math I guess.

kleindropper. The fat cats are paying taxes at a lower rate than they have since before Eisenhower. Get real. Obama won the election and over 53% of Americans want to see this raise on the people who now own over 60% of the entire country's wealth. We need to start winning the class war once in awhile.

One cartoon from Steve Sack says it better than all the op-ed pieces in the past two weeks.

Re:"over 53% of Americans want to see this raise on the people who now own over 60% of the entire country's wealth." - First of all, THAT IS NOT WHAT THE CARTOON IS IMPLYING. Boehner has offered an $800 billion tax increase so nobody is talking about tax cuts; why does the big bulb say "tax cuts" - that is a lie from Sack. Secondly, if you think income and wealth are the same, I can't help you.

This villainizes incorrectly (which is great rhetoric); Boehner isn't saying "ONLY breaks for the wealthy!", as the cartoon implies: he is saying "tax cuts for all". What part of "liberty and justice for all" is the confusing part? I never read "Liberty and justice for everyone except people you hate".

This is great. Steve Sack consistently gives it to republicans. Good stuff. Now, which page here can I find the political cartoonist who roasts democrats?

...and in tomorrow’s cartoon we will see Sack giving it to the Pres for continued unbridled spending...

I suppose the big ornament that Obama will place on his tree is "Free healthcare for criminal illegal aliens".

Why is letting people keep what they earn such a terrible concept to some people? If I (or anyone else) spends an hour doing something productive for someone else and earn money doing so, why should I have to have nearly half stolen from me? Do you think that someone works 12 hours a day to have 6 hours of his earnings stole away? This mentality is why jobs have been going overseas and will continue to do so. You are only hurting yourselves.
