You have to love canned clapping soundtracks. They are so useful for crappy actors, lousy singers (like Justin Berber at the Juno's) and of course, our hero cum scumbag, Hillary. Most of the people weren't even clapping and some had that "deer caught in the headlights" WTF look.

Cheers - Dave

What a bunch of mindless drones. Also to hell with more taxes. Just close loopholes exploited by the non tax paying hyper rich. But of course the Wall Street candidate would never suggest something like that.

If you don't have millions and billions, then you are not a one-percenter. Sorry, Bud.



Thank you for demonstrating my point that liberals don't understand the difference between income and wealth.

Income is how much you make in any given year. Wealth is how much you have in assets. You can very much be a millionaire with little to no income just as you can make a 1%er income and NOT be a millionaire.

It takes an annual income of about $375k to be a 1%er income wise. Federal taxes are INCOME taxes, not wealth taxes. While $375k is good money, it is not "rich" particularly when you factor in that most people that make that kind of money live in high cost of living cities. This is your run of the mill Doctor, lawyer, middle management, small business owner income.

Is it good money? Yes. However, it isn't buying Ferrari's and flying private jet money. A lot of these people may only make that kind of income a few years at the apex of their profession only to have government snatch nearly 50% of it to piss it away.

That's the point.

We'll be treated AS 1%'ers.

Exactly. People don't understand that the middle and the marginally / upper middle are getting crushed. I mean really pounded with taxes. This hurts everyone, especially the poor and those trying to make there way in the world. If I am getting taxed heavy I'm not buying things. Maybe I want a pool and some nice landscaping, been working hard want to use my bonus to hire a local company. If I am getting taxed 35% NO WAY. That means no pool and nobody to hire to clean it and work on it and no pool parties where I buy pizza from the local pizza joint. People are effin retarded in this country who think taxing people more is a good thing.

Full List of Hillary’s Planned Tax Hikes


Hillary Clinton has made clear she intends to dramatically raise taxes on the American people if elected. She has proposed an income tax increase, a business tax increase, a death tax increase, a capital gains tax increase, a tax on stock trading, an "Exit Tax" and more (see below). Her planned net tax increase on the American people is at least $1 trillion over ten years, based on her campaign’s own figures.

Hillary has endorsed several tax increases on middle income Americans, despite her pledge not to raise taxes on any American making less than $250,000. She has said she would be fine with a payroll tax hike on all Americans, she has endorsed a steep soda tax, endorsed a 25% national gun tax, and most recently, her campaign manager John Podesta said she would be open to a carbon tax. It’s no wonder that when asked by ABC's George Stephanopoulos if her pledge was a "rock-solid" promise, she slipped and said the pledge was merely a “goal.” In other words, she's going to raise taxes on middle income Americans.

I will not be voting to give more of my money to the govt.
Enough is enough
F your tax plan
We need a put unemployed and underemployed jobs plan. We put a man on the moon how about a national get your ass to work project!

They weren't listening, she was going to be fairer to the middle class by raising taxes on them,

she screwed up the line think.

See it doesn't matter what they say.

Surely, these idiots know how much she is worth.

I give up.

As many have noted here already, she clearly said "aren't." This is a false statement: "Crowd Cheers Clinton's Call To 'Raise Taxes On The Middle Class'"

Sounds like she said "aren't" instead of "are".

I'm pretty sure she misspoke, let's not forget how confused she often is


The fact that she said it can be brushed off but the part that's more interesting is everyone cheered... So why did they cheer that? I think it's pretty simple - that the majority of the crowds at her rallies are paid actors.

The Rich and Poor Cheered, which is astounding. ...


Not really, the rich elite have been allowed to insulate themselves from the thieving bureaucrats with loopholes and shelters available to them. The poor have nothing to take.

The middle class are the only ones left with any money for the establishment to "mine" (i.e. STEAL).

The Rich and Poor Cheered, which is astounding. The poor and the filthy rich are squeezing the Middle class again, maybe this time into extinction...

Trump's winning counter would be: "I'm raising taxes on anyone who votes Democrat this election season."



That would actually be a really interesting social experiment, since they all seem to want that.

I think it's nuts for anyone to cheer for someone else having to pay more taxes, in the first place. Are those people mentally ill?


Of course they are mentally ill. I don't say that to be mean, as they are truly, factually mentally deficient. OR they are sane, but just evil to the core. Or both.

Who is "they"? The people who failed to properly watch the video and hear Hillary ACTUALLY say "aren't" instead of "are"?

We Are Going To Raise Taxes on the Middle Class

That is what she said. Exactly what she said.

Of course, this is a slip of the tongue. Donald Trump could say he was going to cure cancer and the headline in the morning would read " Trump to give everyone cancer"...

Cognitive Dissonance I think applies here to you...it is one of your favorites to use in posting. In a speech like this you would emphasize NOT and she did not....if you have seen her tax plan you would know she is simply stating the truth.

Lol. ok. I'm not going to argue with you here, because it's silly. If you want to believe she said "are" instead of "aren't" I'm not going to stop you. You've already got your own set of "facts" to argue with anyways. I really don't care anyways. It's not like you were going to ever even consider voting for Hillary let alone actually vote for her. So spare me your biased rhetoric. You aren't fooling anyone.
