Poor man. I hate it when i read stories about the rich not being rich enough. I hope some poor people are reading this article, maybe they will donate some of their money to cover his taxes. I know if i didn't have very much money i would donate(it would be selfish not to).

Does the article state how his family is holding up? I hope they are doing well.

I think what I always think: Congress members are almost universally blind to the realities of their constituency. Like all beneficiaries of a skewed and rigged system, John Fleming thinks that all that he has is due to his being better and smarter than the rest of us. If the rest of us are incapable of achieving the great heights that he's achieved, then it's simply because we're stupid, undeserving, and uninspired.

Note that the new rallying cry for these dinosaurs is "Class Warfare." Way to demonize the enemy there, congressman....

When you tax the poor and middle class everything is fine but if you tax the wealthy it's class warfare. And taxes are going up on people making a million or or more a year. So the crybaby should be able to squeeze by on 400k a year. If he can't make it on 400k a year maybe should learn to live within his means like the poor and middle class do.

This john fleming is an arrogant idiot. He needs to take that silver spoon out of mouth and stick it up his @ss. His saying that he has to re-invest $400k out of his own pocket is BS. He takes it out of the company profits and re-invests it, it's called the "cost of doing business." And even then, he gets to write it all off as legitimate expenses and pay less tax. Someone open up a The Soylent Green Co LLC and start with politicians and then international bankers.....please ;-)

Cheers - Dave

I do not agree with the Presidents plan but this guy is stupid...I mean to be complaining about feeding his family on 400 thousand while most Americans do not even come close to that amount after or before we pay taxes.

Congress and the President kill me with all their talk about cutting Medicaid and Medicare....both could use some reforms but how cutting the House and Senates medical programs....lots of talk about cutting the military retirement....but nothing on cutting the very generous retirement plan the Congress has access too...a kid in the military that does two tours in Afghanistan or Iraq gets nothing for retirement...hopefully they qualify for the GI Bill and get a college degree out of it but if there are no jobs good luck...meanwhile some idiot in Congress that spends five years as a Senator can get full medical and full retirement at age 62. Whats wrong with us ? We have let them do this too us and lets just not take it anymore !

This dood isn't on anybody's level. I would like to see somebody feed him to his family.
Class warfare doesn't create jobs?
Killing is a business. The US government has proven that time and again.
This guy is way out of touch.

The problem is that there are so many people at the bottom of the economic spectrum that it's the only place they can get the kind of money they need. They could tax the rich people at 100% but that still wouldn't bring in anything near what they squeeze out of us the "general population". It's like any other pyramid scheme. You have to have the numbers in your base to add up to the really big money.

Ever read "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair? It's worth the time and it describes the current situation as well as the time it was written over 100 years ago. Link: sunsite.berkeley.edu...[/url]

He nets $600,000 a year, and it takes $200,000 to “feed his family”, leaving him with a measly $400,000 extra a year! Poor guy... Maybe he could save some money by cutting down on his food expense.

Maybe he should stop having kids if he can't afford them? I mean how many must he have like 40 if he spends $200,000 to feed them? Or maybe it's just 10 very fat kids (HEHE they probably are getting their A%$*^ beat daily if that is the case)

What a freaking moron!

This Congressman John Fleming, is my new hero.

I would say a whole cascade of disparaging remarks on the
sub normal intelligence level of many of the responses above me...

but that would be an insult to morons.

When did it become a crime to be rich in this country.

The man employs 500 people.

How many people are employed by the smelly opinions posted above.


It reminds me of a bus in high school.
Every time the bus made a left hand turn,
all the kids (except me) would run jump to the right side of the bus.

And the bus would tilt really far.
They would giggle and laugh.
and the next left hand turn try even harder.

The Driver finally pulled the Bus over and yelled at everyone.



You bunch of baboons are trying to tip the bus over
by ridiculing John Fleming.

It is clear to me that not one of you cares a single whit
for any of the 500 employees or the investments he wants to make
to employ even more people.

Yet the government takes over 35% from everyone.
But his meager 10% is somehow a crime.

/slap the stupid off some people.

So people who sacrafice their personal time to create and run buisnesses

Should stop having children?!?

I'm sorry. Just how exactly do people think buisnesses and decent paying jobs
get started. They're beamed down from a sled by Santa Clause?

Its fine if they pay decent and keep all aspects of their business here, which they don't they pay crap and they ship most of their work overseas. So no I don't feel bad for him he should go live in China or India since he hates America and American workers so much, we don't need his businesses and we sure as hell don't' need him as a congressman, Or he can live in caymen where he send his unreported money. Yes and he can stop having fat spoiled snot nosed rich kids who think they are God's greatest gift cause we certainly don'tt want more with his shallow gene pool procreating.

Normally I'm enthralled and enchanted by posts from ldyserenity,

I find this oddly disturbing.
Is someone else drunk and posting on their account?

Even the word choices in the insult filled paragraph above,
seem sub normal for ldyserenity's usual posts.

Okay, no it is me, but I think this guy is self deluded.
And I hear how they would like the poor to go away and get done with it they support eugenics (this is all well known) but we're the ones instigating class warfare?
I am just sick of everyone crying about their money and meanwhile they're selling us off to China mainly, soon we are gonna have to learn chinese and we will be working at 40 cents an hour too, that's what it seems like they want. They want a slave class and I am not down with that.

Well I'm onboard with that feeling.

Star for you.

I just don't think he's one of the bad one into all that.
