    Obviously for the tea bagger crew, that's Fox...and they will simply never have a story that actually explains what Bartlett is saying.

    Even the mainstream media fouls all this up.

    When the bill passed, my mother called and was worried that she'd be paying more tax on her investment income.  She had heard this on NBC News.

    I do her taxes.  I said, "Yes, you'll pay a 3.8% tax on that income.  But first you have to start making $150,000 more a year."

    I had to send her the clip of the reconciliation bill to put her at ease.

    NBC had left out that the fact, that the tax on unearned income only affects those with an income over $200K (singles) and $250K (couples).

    Whoops.

    •  Time to hold Fox responsible for the violence (4+ / 0-)

      The people need to formulate a class action lawsuit against Fox & Friends (Beck, O'Reilly personally and Fox News Network generally) for aiding and abetting domestic terrorism and violence in our country.

      THE TEA BAGGERS ARE RIGHT ON ONE COUNT:  WE NEED TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK.....

      BACK FROM THE HANDS OF ANGRY, VIOLENT PEOPLE AND THOSE WHOM AID AND ABET.  RIGHT NOW THAT LOOKS LIKE THE GOP AND FOX NEWS.

      but rarely true for their audience.

      What we really have here, is the anchors, reporters, editorial and executive staff getting the viewers all fired up about issues that don't affect them but affect the people who give them their talking points.
