Orwell Lives! People Making Over $200k Don’t Work

Forget the fact that we are all going to be taxed to the mizax* because of Obama’s Bush Squared spending. This really annoyed me:

President Obama seized the opportunity on tax-filing day to assert that his administration is easing the tax burden of working people.

At the same time, protesters are expected to mark April 15 with demonstrations in hundreds of U.S. cities, including so-called “tea parties” to criticize Obama’s tax policies.

“We have delivered real and tangible progress for the American people. I am proud to announce that my administration has lessened the tax burden on working families while also restoring some balance to the tax code,” Obama said in remarks prepared for delivery Wednesday at a White House event.

Sure, there are some super rich people who don’t work. But to refer to those making under $200k as “working families”–implying that, say, a hedge fund husband and corporate attorney wife living in NYC and pulling in a household income of $350k aren’t a “working family”?!?! Are you kidding me?

In a different context, liberals would be criticizing this same couple for their materialism and dumping their kids off in child care so that they could “chase the Joneses” and work 70-hour weeks to get that yacht.

* Don’t you dare tell me I misspelled “mizax.”
