Class Warfare Comix

I've got twelve cars that I don't use
I'm wearing thousand dollar shoes
But now it's time to pay my dues
I got them old class warfare blues

Take it, Tex...
I've been takin it, Mister Buffett. I've been takin it for a long time.
Ain't that the truth?
Takin it on the chin, takin it up the ass, but with the economy bein in this awful mess, I just can't afford to say take this job and shove.
Well, it's just not right. Did you know that my secretary pays a higher tax rate than I do?
That totally boggles my mind, Mister Buffett... Is that the God-honest truth?
It sure is, Tex. You see, all of Mister Buffetts income is derived from capital gains, so his tax rate is only 15%, while I'm paying 28%.
And don't forget, Sue, I only pay Social Security and Medicare on a tiny fraction of my income, while you pay it on your entire salary.
That's a sad story, but any new burdens placed on America's job creators is a form of class warfare.
Unless you've got a harmonica behind that handkerchief, you best be moving on. This stage is for players only.
Pitting one group of Americans against another is not leadership...This administration's insistence on raising taxes on job creators and its...
I don't think you heard the lady, Boehner. Show this bore the door, Agent Smith.
Beat it, pal, and don't let me see you again unless you have a banjo in your hand.
You know, Mister President, I think it's about time that you started making sure that wealthy folks like me pay our fair share. I don't know, maybe propose a millionaire tax.
I'm one step ahead of you, Warren. As a matter of fact, I think I'm going to name it after you. You rule, Ukulele Man, so I'm going to call it the Buffett Rule.
Hot diggity, that's gonna make the fat cats get up and dance.
Don't forget the oil subsidy giveaways and the corporate jet tax loophole.
I would never forget the corporate jet tax loophole, Sue. Okay, everybody, let's play 'Night Train' in the key of B-sharp!
