    Henry, please re-consider your hyper-partisian stance, support the middle class, not the top 1%

    I actually liked Mr Payne’s cartoon. If a high tide lifts all boats equally, a leaf blower pushes the debris of campaigns with equal vigor. It is incumbent upon all of us to help our nation be the shining city on the hill Reagan envisioned. I appreciate Mr. Payne’s neutral tone, and I have many times respected his partisan opinion when I knew why he took that position.
    I hope everyone reconsiders “hyper-partisanship.” It hurts America, and it should stop.

    Mitt is done. Ryan is another story.

    I once posted the question: “Who are the top 1% and what tax rate do they pay?” Many responded with campaign rhetoric, very, very few even came close to the correct answer. From the IRS and NTU (national taxpayers union): Income level for 1% starts at $343,000 and the income tax rate they pay on average is 36%. State tax levels are not included. In many states it would drive the combined rate to almost 50%. Of course rates vary with income and circumstances, but it showed me that most people ranting about this had no clue what the facts are. I am glad this election is over, it is probably the dirtiest I have seen in my 66 years and will leave a bad taste in my mouth for a long time to come.

    @Respectful Troll

    I repeat a comment from another posting. If all responded with your civility we wouldn’t have the bitter partisanship that exists today. Unfortunately the bitterness and angst runs deep and I don’t see the conciliatory remarks Obama made last night as generating an era of cooperation and goodwill. He insulted too many people and made it too personal. Conservatives have no faith in any supposed sincerity addressed to them. He is too good a speech maker to be believed…

    Thank you mickey1339,
    I believe I responded to the comment you reference a few moments ago. A synopsis would simply, be, we need to swallow hurt feelings and bite back accusatory words and ask, “how do we fix (insert the issue here)?” The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step; Today’s the first day of the rest of our lives. you know the cliches. But they are also truths. It hurts today, if we walk it out, it will get better. That’s what my physical therapist tells me anyway.
    Thank you again for the kind words and the thoughtful tone.

    Yes, I too, thought it was reasonably bipartisan, and therefore worthy of praise!
