I am a fairly upper income taxpayer. Not anything even remotely close to sports stars or movie stars or financial big boys. But I am above the level Mr. Obama says makes me rich. So, in the midst of a severe recession, I am to have my taxes raised dramatically.
I am not quite sure what my sin is.
Your sin, sir, is being a whiny little snot who doesn’t get the idea that the Internal Revenue Service and the tax code were not created just to make your life miserable; it’s just one of the perks.
So while people like Ben Stein will have to pass up the S-Class Mercedes and settle for the E, the rest of us will just have to remind them that “class warfare” was a term invented by people who don’t have a whole lot of class in the first place.
