Republicans Keep House Majority While Losing Six Seats
Republicans retained control of the House of Representatives, losing a half-dozen seats to Democrats even as President Barack Obama won a second term and Senate Democrats expanded their majority.
Following the once a decade gerrymandering that favored the GOP (because of the 2010 elections) the GOP lost seats, and the total could be as much as 8 following contests in CA and Florida getting settled, both of which have GOP incumbents.
Here is the question of the day, does anyone think that wealthy people should pay a lower percentage of their income to taxes than middle class people? Don't argue tax brackets, just a simple question. Do you think someone earning 46 million dollars should pay a lower percentage of their income than say someone earning sixty thousand?
