In an election that often focused on debates about class warfare, President Barack Obama was favored over multimillionaire businessman Mitt Romney in eight of the nation’s 10 wealthiest counties.
And his margin of victory in all eight counties was greater than that of the national vote, in which Obama was leading by 50 percent to 48 percent with 97 percent of precincts reporting.
The findings are based on a CNBC.com analysis of Census Bureau numbers on average annual household income from 2006-2011 and results from Tuesday’s elections.
I just became a proponent of Obama's "tax the rich plan".
Time to pay your fair share boys!
It's not the most wealthy that Obama's policies seek to persecute.
Good, tax the frick out of them. Make them pay for their votes.
quote:You don't know any wealthy people would be my guess. The wealthy pay advisors to avoid taxes. They have the discretion to decide if and when they want to realize income. Do you think other wealthy people are any different than Mitt Romney and his tax rate of less than 15%?
the wealthy really don't give a shite either way, they have more than enough that no amount really hurts them
