I find it almost humorous that the Republicans are calling a rollback to the Clinton era tax rates "class warfare!" Amazing that this WILL become a major future talking point/mantra. Seems to me class warfare has been a part of American culture for a long time "apart" from economics. But if we take JUST the economics: Minimum wage job: $7.25 per hour = $15,280 (before taxes) X 40 years of labor = $611,200 Middle Class wage $50,000 per year X 40 years labor = $2 million "upper" class wage $250,000 per year X 40 years labor = $10 million Upper Upper class wage $1 million per year X 40 years labor = $40 million! Seems to me that all those millions of people making minimum wage jobs just don't appreciate how "rough" the Upper class has it!! And since WHEN did a graduated income tax become "class" warfare??? Any thoughts?
