This could get interesting. I wonder how long it will take, before Rove is called a RHINO? The GOP seems to be eating their own.

I'm not convinced people really understand how the AMT works. The reason it doesn't affect the higher income people is because THEY'VE ALREADY LOST all the deductions/exemptions that everyone else gets.

So it is so disingenuous to imply it someone is helping them or protecting them.

What has happened is that because of inflation it just so happens to affect more people than it used to--people it wasn't intended to affect. So that needs to be addressed but it wasn't set up so as to benefit the rich. It was so to make sure those considered very well off were paying something at all because the system could be used to really minimize what they paid so they were trying to make sure that didn't happen.

On the income growth chart, it is interesting that under Democrats all people's income rises more than under Republicans. People care about their income no matter who is president.

"No and I don't fall for group think mentality either."



Then what makes you think that you are any different from your average Republican.

I know you've seen me speak to this before, but I think I saw some movement on the rotting equine carcass. ;)

Since one's wealth is relative to the rest of society, one might come to the conclusion that those at the top are "better" off gaining a little bit less if those at the bottom gain a lot less.

The statements I made are true. Karl Rove was noted as the mastermind of the GOP, from many people. I find it amusing that you are offended by that.



More than one person is saying the GOP is eating their own, even those in the party, are you going to confront Fox News too?
