If they are worried about class envy pitting groups against one another, they probably ought to re-read their own proposals. The Republican plan does impose huge sacrifices on the poor and the middle class, while cutting taxes on the rich and corporations. All in all, the terms “class warfare” and “corporate welfare” apply nicely to conservative proposals. As to the math, taxes on the rich need to be raised, and significantly more than the measely 3% that Republicans were willing to crash the economy to prevent.

Until the great wealth re-distributor stops with the “their fair share” sideshow, don’t expect Americans to take him seriously.
He spent $1.4 trillion more than we took in this year and his answer for this is to push a tax on the rich that will bring in $40 billion.

can anyone do the math here?
