It includes the million as a special tax it is known as -- the buffet rule.

-- from the there is a -- -- how good Michael I would imagine that a tax the rich policy it would play pretty well in Massachusetts.
Yes and a lot of guilty wealthy people here like John Kerry and they should feel guilty -- and everything and it pretty well -- But that the problem is -- you were talking that early in your previous segment it catches all of those small business owners are even think about it a tax increase it takes away deductions.
For income households that earn 250000 dollars in the suburbs of -- a Boston Massachusetts that's the middle you know a typical average suburban household.
All the churches all the charities there realtors who are looking for some help in this horrible realistic market they're all gonna get hit.

Check out the headline on the front about the tax deal the president you'll see.
That it reads half a trip have -- -- 83 trillion in savings comes from taxes.
Taxes -- savings taxes are more money.
And there's no that's the problem here what President Obama says I'm going to punish all you evil wealthy people -- working eighty hours a week.
We're going to college for eight years to learn a high value skill this is gonna punish us take more money to solve the problem half.
I'll be so called savings are more my money.

I see it as pure politics and -- real fast.
You know I used to run good campaigns -- it's obviously politics but the magic word that's missing is conversation about taxes and -- and get them and evil is jobs.
