When any politicians speaks of the "wealthy" as needing to make "sacrifices," you should know several things:
1. The economy is in trouble.
2. Envy is afoot.
3. Statism is on the loose.
4. Terms are being abused, since taxation is not sacrifice; it is forcible extraction.
5. The "wealthy" will be defined arbitrarily, since people's incomes are not a sure indicator of their assets.
