    We aren't talking just about the Buffets, Gates, or the Trumps as the rich, any household making over $250k is now rich. The last time I checked that wasn't rich, that was well off but not rich. My dads small business makes enough to be "rich" but I don't see him living the life of luxury that the President likes to portray. I see a man in his 60's getting up at 0530 everyday and working till 1700 just so his business runs smoothly.

    "The regime is only after breaking the Republicans apart. Obama has no intentions of balancing anything. He's totally hell-bent on punishing his rivals, with his demands for higher rates on the wealthy. If you fools believe his "rate war" will resolve the deficite problems, then you are bigger fools than your 'prince' is. You can bet he KNOWS his tax increases will do nothing but make the Republicans bow to him, and give him his REAL victory." Uncle Bill

    That is what you do when you are in a fight. You crush your opponent and break their will. Don't pretend that a Rbloodlican president wouldn't do the same thing. If you believe they would "play nice" with the other side, you are the proverbial "fool" as you so freely call anybody that doesn't buy into your pre-historic mindset.

    How many employees does your father's business have? Does he have a manager under him?

    7 full time and 5 part time, with several seasonal or per project. All of which make above average wages for the job and region.

    Sounds like he needs to get a more efficient manager to direct the workforce. Delegate some of the tasks to people and take some of the pressure off of himself.

    The higher marginal tax rate only applies to the money one makes over $250,000 So lets say you make $300,000 of taxable income...you taxes go up $2500. I can live with that to secure my economy. Now I also want spending cuts especially in defense. It is rediculus how much money we spend on defense. We can crush anyone and they don't hold a candle to our military strength and we have found that special forces and drones are the way to fight the problems we have anyway.

    Those defense workers that will lose their jobs will have to move and work in the oilfield or detriot

    The problem that I see with the GOP proposal is the fact that they are not being specific on what loopholes they want to close. Sound familiar? It should, Romney said he would close loopholes, yet wouldn't specify which ones. If Boehner would specify which ones, maybe Obama would be willing to listen a little bit.
