Bless The Super Rich
The Wealth Report has a blog showing the voting difference between lower and upper Richistan.
"More than three quarters of those worth $1 million to $10 million plan to vote for Sen. McCain. Only 15% plan to vote for Sen. Obama (the rest are undecided). Of those worth more than $30 million, two-thirds support Sen. Obama, while one third support Sen. McCain.
The reason? Taxes.
Among Lower Richistani’s, 88% cited tax policies as being “important” in making their decision. Only 11% cited the environment, 22% cited health care and 45% cited social issues.
Among the Upper Richistani’s supporting Sen. Obama, tax policies ranked last, with only 16% citing them as important. “Social issues” ranked first, with “policies dealing with wars” ranking second (67%) and Supreme Court nominations and health-care issues ranking next."
Back in 1980 a wise older woman said to me that she didn't care if she had to pay $100k in taxes because if she had to, she would be one of the exceptionally fortunate people in the world and would be so lucky in life to have such a tax bill.
Canada has reduced taxes and I have been opposed to it. I am probably a larger benefactor of it, but I don't need a break, those at the bottom need the break.
Today is Canada's Thanksgiving and I am thankful for the people that are thankful for people like that wise older woman who was part of my life in my late teens.
