"The Dems are the ones waging class warfare and the politics of envy and talking about the unfairness of it all and striving to punish the successful, thus it is fitting to point out that they themselves are very, very rich. McCain isn't interested in doing any of that, thus his financial condition is not relevant to this particular discussion."

McCain is for tax cuts (with spending cuts) and not bailing out the irresponsible.

Hillary and Obama want to bail out everyone, confiscate mortgage lenders money.

Obama says 'no new taxes' up to 200K, then turns around and says SS withholding will go from 96K to infinite...for someone making 200K, that is a 20K increase between the employee and the employer. And you can bet salaries won't rise since employers need to recoup that extra 10K in taxes they now have to pay.

And 100 million Americans own stock. Many of them earning well under 200K. Now, all of a sudden, cap gains rates nearly double.

Clinton cut tax rates from 28% to 20%. Revenues increased.

Bush cut tax rates from 20% to 15%. Tax revenues increased.

Obama could care less that if he raises the cap gains rate, tax revenues will plummet.

He is out to 'punish the rich'. And the middle class, so he can fund all his pet programs for 'the poor people'
