    Too many Dems at the state and local level do indeed prefer to raise taxes on the working and middle-class instead of the really wealthy.

    In NJ, Corzine increased the state sales tax by 14%, and lost in a Blue state.

    In IL, the Governor announced that he would increase income taxes by 66% on every household.  He won by 0.4% in a state that President Obama carried by over 24% points.

    We, as Dems, often lament that so many Southerners vote against their self-interest by voting GOP.

    What do we tell a Dem that has seen stagnant wages for over a decade, who has Dem governors and mayors increasing his tax burden?
