Since President Obama is in the midst of election mode, he has amped up his attacks on the rich in order to pander to lower-income voters. The president continues to call for an expiration of the Bush tax cuts for those who make over $250,000.
While that is more than what the vast majority of Americans make, it is a far cry from his fight to raise taxes on the millionaires and billionaires only. According to the IRS, 2.7 million Americans earn more than $250,000 a year, but only one-tenth of those make more than $1 million.

Dear Editor,

Brandon Irvine’s column in Tuesday’s edition of the Daily Mississippian accurately characterizes the fiscal irresponsibility that reigns in Washington today.
