Taxing the rich is popular.

I continue to be amazed that wingnuts express seemingly genuine shock/outrage that Obama wants to raise taxes on rich people.

In 6 days, Obama will have proposed over $2 trillion (that trillion with a ”t”) in new taxes, above and beyond what we already pay.

The big spender is on a tax hike bender.

1) Taxes are at historic lows.

2) The gap between the top 1% and everyone else is at historic highs.

3) Taxing rich people is very popular.

I understand that all they care about is keeping taxes low for rich people, but you'd think some of their shrieking would acknowledge -- however slightly -- at least some of these actual facts.
