Bidens Brain found buried

About: biden: 'yes, we do' want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars | the weekly standard

Rumor has it that there is a life-like replica of the vice president
running around programmed with AI (artificial ignorance).

Then here it says
that Biden & the Obama campaign
are doubling down
on Biden's claim that
the middle class
is buried

I don't know if it is just me ... but i am starting to find the obsessive references to "the middle class" by politicians this year are becoming obnoxious.

over use ... too repetitive ... Incidentally this is not a rational kine of thing where I can really give a reason ... it is more of an emotional thingy.   If i said "thingey" all the time and used it in every 5th sentence, would you not get tired of it ?
The one I hate the most is fair share used ad nauseum by Obama. He usually uses it while he's trying to beat up the rich to get more taxes while his tax effects on the rich extend all the way down to $250,000/yr incomes - OK, but not exactly rich.

In your mind is there no fair share ?  Should the government get its tax burden by taking the same $1 from a poor man where it is 1/5 of his total income, that it takes from a rich man where it is 1/1,000,000 ?  (see Wikipedia: progressive tax)

For me the answer is clear, the tax burden should be accessed progressively and that is fair. 

The only question is what the slope of the curve should be ... the devil is in the details ... Wikipedia does suggest a formula.

The government uses a Robin Hood formula.  It would be a fair share if everyone had a vested interest in paying some, however small, amount. AND the government were limited in how much it could spend.  Unfortunately the government acts, unaccountably, like it has an unlimited amount to spend like a slush fund & has the right to steal from the rich to pay for it.  Is this fair? The top 50% pay 97% of all income taxes?
Once government is out of the business of economics then we can talk of fair share. It will never be fair the way it is!  c.f.:

Some fair share parameters to consider: governments have a whole different idea of fair share than those two words actually mean.
