A Little Cake With Your Class Warfare?

In case anyone was wondering about the extent to which the tax freaks are wa-aaaa-aayyy out of the mainstream, take a gander at this. Yes, it's true that almost half of those responding thought the middle class was paying too much, but in reality most of those understood that they do need to pay something, and a lot of them actually understood that Obama just lowered their taxes. What really rankles is exposed in the last two questions. Three-fifths of those surveyed (which includes the excessively high 10% who consider themselves wealthy), think that upper-income folks pay too little, and 2/3 think that corporations pay too little. So, go ahead and protest. Please. This only cuts one way, just like the guillotine.
