    What ever the Tax increase, They always come after the Middle Class. There are more of us, so more money to squander. All of this hype about Millionaires & Billionaires, is just communist lingo to create Class Envy.

    The line “First they came for the rich” is surely a reference to the statement by statement made by theologian Martin Niemöller, one version of which is:

    First they came for the socialists,
    and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a socialist

    Then they came for the trade unionists,
    and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews,
    and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.

    Then they came for me,
    and there was no one left to speak for me.

    The “they” are the Nazis. The “came for” is rounding up people to go into concentration camps, most of whom would eventually be killed.

    So this cartoon equates Congress with the Nazis and raising the tax rate on rich people with putting people in concentration camps and then killing them.

    Seems worse than inappropriate to me.
