Obama seems to want to give more to the middle class and below, by taxing the wealthy.
I don't understand why it is hunkey dorey to funnel the wealth to the rich, but it is blasphemy to even suggest the distribution of more of the money
to the working people? It seems like an interesting double standard to me. What is really strange to me is that most of the people who are crying
about it are people who would actually benefit from it. Most are using talking points that have been generated by people who would be hurt by it
It's because of people like my brother-in-law.
He's under the impresion that his parents will be overtaxed/lose benifits if Obama gets in because they make more than 200,000 a year. They actually
make millions a year I found out when I was doing their books for them.
All I could say was, "I guess your dad will have to sell off all those cars he has." He spends all his profits on restoring old cars and has
millions of dollars worth.
My brother-in-law basicly gets his check from them and makes a nice lump of change and because my sister also has a decent income it may affect them
Me, I own a car and a computer and that's it. He (brother-in-law) owns a very large 2 story house, 4 cars, 2 campers, 2 boats and the list goes on
and on, and on top of it had to declare bankruptcy at one point.
So too bad I say he should have done what my parents have been doing. They spend nothing in fact sell whatever they can for a profit and keep all the
cash not to mention have 0 debt.
So those are the type that are afraid of the new tax idea's by Obama.
