    I know, this isn't the way we normally think. We say: damn, the government is taking 35-40 percent of my money already, and I'm supposed to use more of it to help others?
    because that's what's happening.  between payroll taxes and property taxes the middle income get squeezed hard to pay for capital gains tax cuts for high frequency traders.

    and when you're getting squeezed hard, you get the sympathy squeezed right out of you.
