    Where the $200,000+ Crowd Lives-- The liberal states most affected by the tax hike

    The White House's budget for fiscal year 2010 calls for tax hikes on wealthy Americans. In this case, that means couples making over $250,000 a year and individuals $200,000 a year. Under the budget plan, these households (about 3 percent of the total) would experience tax increases of $318 billion over the next 10 years. Here's a look at the states that will be most affected by the tax hike and how they voted in the last presidential election.

    I’d be curious as to what percentage of the over-$200K households voted for the socialist.According to cnn...it was 52% Obama, 46% McCain, 2% other (source:http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/results/polls/#USP00p1)
    .............................
    Interesting numbers. Do we know where the often repeated numbers of ‘only the top 2% of workers in America earn over $250,000. per year’ comes from? Not one of those states had the numbers at 2%..they were all higher with the lowest being 3.8%.

    While most of those states voted for Obama...that's only the average household. That's certainly not to say or even suggest that the rich voted for him (except in DC and probably CA).

    and New York - and Massachusetts - and New Jersey . . . .
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    That's incredible, only seven percent in DC voted for McCain,what a pest house of liberalism .In 2008, the Federal Government accounted for about 27% of the jobs in Washington, D.C.

    The 2000 census revealed that an estimated 33,000 adults in the District of Columbia identify as gay, lesbian, or bisexual, about 8.1% of the city's adult population.The 2000 census revealed that an estimated 33,000 adults in the District of Columbia identify as gay, lesbian, or bisexual, about 8.1% of the city's adult population and the Washingtons Black population is 60.1% an they all voted for the 'one '!
