"I don't care about that." That is what Rick Perry said in the New York Times when John Harwood told him his tax plan would increase income inequality.

I have no trouble believing all Republicans are uncaring.

Thanks, Betsy, neither do I. I'd send you a green star, but I already sent you one this week.

Of course Perry doesn't care about that, at least those who are not millionaires. On the other hand he cares a great deal about the top tax brackets because he is hoping to pile up enough middle class and poor bodies to allow him to climb into those high income brackets.

It's pretty darn obvious that the current administration doesn't give a hoot either. It's not just the reps but the Obama administration that has hired so many of the bad guys we all love to hate.

Great article - think was last line - we, Americans, DO understand the protestors are protesting for the inequality of money not just capitalism.

I consider myself to be typically middle class. I have a morgaged home, a car payment, and I teach. I give 1,900 a year to the teachers' union - like it or not, I contribute 1.5 of my salary to pay for my insurance. I make over 60,000 a year, and lose a third to taxes.
Do I have to watch what I spend?Yes. Have I been on a vacation outside of this country in 10 years?No.
Do I have a large savings account? no. Do I basically live check to check? yes.
Can any of you relate to this? Welcome to the middle class!
