• Sen. Jeff Sessions Fights Against "Pathetic" Notion That Rich People Pay Their Share of Taxes

    Look. So long as there are poor people out there who aren't being harvested for protein, do you really have the time to bother Jeff Sessions with nonsense like this?

    Having the Senate declare that millionaires should share more of the pain involved in putting America's financial house in order is "rather pathetic," Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) declared Tuesday…

    [Harry] Reid's first measure in that direction is a non-binding resolution that states: "It is the sense of the Senate that any agreement to reduce the budget deficit should require that those earning $1,000,000 or more per year make a more meaningful contribution to the deficit reduction effort."…

    "So I guess we can say we're beginning to talk about something with this rather pathetic response from the majority leader," he said. "I'm not happy about that."…

    Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson commented: "Apparently, nothing irritates Republicans more than the prospect that millionaires and billionaires might be asked to share in the burden of deficit reduction."

    Good for you, Sen. Sessions! For too long have the legislators of this country threatened to hold our millionaires under the oppressive boot of not being treated like the oligarchs that they are.

    For God's sake, when will it end?!
