Abby Zimet

Executive pay is soaring. U.S. corporate taxes are among the lowest in the world. And Democrats today will force a sense-of-the-Senate bill to ask if any rich people plan to help any way to reduce the deficit - because they sure don't seem to. When TPM asked, most whined that sheesh how much more can we do and can you please cut our taxes and then leave us alone to enjoy our stuff?

"Millionaires can contribute to deficit reduction by spending part of their millions." - Sen. John McCain, who has too many houses to be able to remember how many he has.
