I'm not here to say, I told you so. But I told you so!
Lots of folks laughing at me a year ago when I predicted on this show that Democrats' definition of rich would change quickly.
Back then, "rich" was anyone making more than a million bucks. But I figured there are only so many millionaires out there to squeeze, so to pay for all these programs promised, you're going to have to bring that million down.
Then lo and behold, John Edwards did. Said half-a-million makes you rich.
Followed by Hillary Clinton, who suggested those making over 250,000 bucks could pay more taxes.
And just today, Charlie Rangel knocking that figure down to 200,000 smackers.
Charlie says anyone making that or more, should pay more. Four percent more... a surtax, if you will.
You see where this is going?
They've gone from millionaires to little more than hundred-thousandaires in less time than me at the dessert bar at Ponderosa.
And trust me, there's nothing magical about six figures.
Barack Obama himself has tinkered with the idea of removing the income threshold for social security, capped right now at a little more than $97,000.
I'm not here to gloat, I am here to warn.
My friends, it is just a matter of time, before they trickle down to you.
