I Only Make $400,000…

You should feel sorry for me and not talk about raising my taxes.  That, at least, seems to be the sentiment of one of our beloved Congressmen…  John Fleming by name-

“By the time I feed my family, I have maybe $400,000 left over,” Fleming said.  Jansing pointed out that to a person making $40,000 or $50,000 per year, making $400,000 annually is “not exactly a sympathetic position,” but Fleming responded by calling his success a “virtue” and noting that “class warfare has never created a job.”  “This is all about creating jobs,” Fleming said. “This is not about attacking people who make certain incomes.”

Poor thing, let’s set up a prayer vigil for him and ask for donations.
