I can do without Obama and his brand of change.
Increase the taxes on people who make more than $250,000 a year? Go for it. What kind of message does that send? If you're successful I'll punish you for it? Please. The majority of people who make over that amount are more than likely small business owners, who also employ the majority of Americans. Doing that could hamper their ability to hire new employees which will lead to less jobs being available. The consumers will also feel the brunt of it by the increased cost of goods and services.
I didn't even mention Congress yet. Think they would really go for it considering most of them probably earn more than $250,000 in income every year? I don't. That cuts into their money and that's a pretty greedy lot of people.

It might start out okay but it in a few years it will morph into the same thing that everything else run by the government does.

I have a good job now but I still live paycheck to paycheck and until recently have worked two or three jobs to try and make ends meet. I don't want anything from anybody. Share the wealth? Share
. There is no such thing as a classless society and there never will be.
Notice I didn't say anything about McCain being a better option. To be honest I don't know if we could be any better off under McCain but I think Obama can make things a lot worse. No thanks.
