"By the time I feed my family, I have maybe $400,000 left over."
-- Rep. John Fleming (R-LA), in an interview on MSNBC, on why as a small business owner he can't afford a tax increase.
This is the same guy who, as a Republican, figures it's more fair for ME to get a tax increase (i.e., he wants to cancel the payroll tax cut). Gee, by the time I feed my family I don't have even $40,000 left over...or $4,000. But I suppose it's my job to carry the burden, not his. How can he possibly afford ANYTHING?
