Q. How hard is it to make ends meet on $400k a year?

A. I refuse to answer that on the grounds that it's class warfare.

Or, at least, I would say that if I were Congressman John Phleming, Republican of Louisiana, who appeared on MSNBC this morning to go attack's Obama's new deficit reduction plan, which includes some tax increases on the wealthiest Americans. The Congressman (who is drawing two salaries--one as a member of congress and one as a small business owner) complains that he only has $400,000 left over after "feeding" his family and paying employees and taxes. ONLY $400,000 LEFT OVER. Seriously, it's hard to make it on that. Poor guy.

But don't worry! YOU can help!! Join me, won't you, to raise money for Congressman John Phlegm]ming?
