Reader comment on: Party of the Rich

Obama won the "rich vote" by less than the "non-rich" vote. Using such a small sample of congresspeople is a bit ridiculous, but less ridiculous than citing that the richest country voted for Obama as in any way proof that Democrats are the party of the rich.
I would say that trying to extend the tax rates on the top 2% on income earners is a better argument about which party is trying to protect the wealthy.
