Why is it that the richest people in congress are an overwhelming majority part of the left-wing?
Also, why do Buffet and Obama insist on taxing the wealthy when their Wall Street buddies (I.e. All the democrat donors) never pay taxes? (Buffet reportedly owes millions in unpaid back-taxes). Just look at General Electric, they made tens of billions yet paid $0 in taxes because they have Washington accountants and are one of Obama's biggest donors. They also own MSNBC, this is strange because I thought it was the liberals in the 60s who warned against big corporations also owning or being affiliated with the media, no?
because the progressive minded politicians prefer to pick the winners and losers...the free market minded would prefer the public pick....
