Imagine if the excess of the Bachmann tax plan came from the left.

Michelle Bachmann's tax plan is pure right wing class warfare. Eviscerate taxes for the wealthy, the super wealthy and corporations and shift the burden onto the 47% who don't pay taxes even though they do pay taxes in many other ways.

Consider a liberal equivalent.

Raise taxes by the same amount Bachmann wants to lower them. Capital Gains goes to 30% instead of zero. Apply same to estate taxes and corporate taxes. The increase the minimum wage to $12.00 an hour and protect Unions.

The right would be bleating class war, class war in 0.2 seconds. So why is Bachmann exempt from the same charge? There is no need to answer. It reflects the depravity of politics in America today.
