The central problem with Republicans and TrailerPark Republicans

Against all contrary evidence they act as though everyone in America is wealthy or will shortly become wealthy…like next month.
“I hate to tell you, by Washington’s definitions that [Melancon]’s using, virtually everybody in this audience is the wealthy.”
Naturally he was referring to Obama’s discussion this week of tax policy which would reduce taxes on those that make $250,000 per year while allowing those that make above this amount return to the rates assessed under President Clinton. No, not even the rates that have historically been associated with our period of greatest growth and middle class expansion.
The audience was supposedly drawn from the general public, not Vitter’s campaign donors.
The median income in Vitter’s state is around $43,000 per year.
Anyone in that state who makes the median and votes for this idiot is a dumbass.
