  •  Well, in all fairness (4+ / 0-)

    the GOPers leading the whingeing rally will see their taxes go up.  Glenn Beck & O'Really almost certainly make over %500,000/year.

    Their little dittoheads, however, are just. plain. stupid.

    •  Unfortunately not enough (0+ / 0-)

      Yes the wingnuts like Hannity and Limbaugh will likely see some income tax increase because they receive a large incomes as wages or salaries. But most millionares are not like them, they receive most of their income from profits created by their property, i.e. capital gains. Raising the top income tax rates will have little or no effect on the very wealthy because they don't receive any income from wages or salaries. Capital gains rates need to be put on a progressive scale before any real tax fairness could even come close to reality.

        a lot of his previous supporters.  He recently claimed that if HE isn't getting a tax cut then America wasn't getting a tax cut.  Problem is, I suspect 99.8% of his regular listeners ARE getting a tax cut.  And after years of selfish GOP propaganda, they are likely to be thinking ...

        "Hey Rush, I got MY tax cut.  Fuck You fat boy."
