‘class warfare’ turns out to be pretty popular

Steve Benen: The latest CBS News poll asked national respondents whether they’d support higher taxes on millionaires to lower the deficit. The results weren’t exactly close:

….it appears “class warfare” is pretty popular with the American mainstream … Why are Democrats, from President Obama on down, so unafraid of this issue? Because they’ve seen polls like this one, and know most Americans agree with them.

Warren Buffett (2006): “There’s class warfare, all right, but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.”

    We all saw that clip that was shown yesterday of Reagan pretty much saying the same thing as PBO
    about the unfairness in the tax system. However I did not hear one Repub/TP person shouting
    that Reagan was promoting class warfare…Hippocracy thy name is GOP!

    It’s only class warfare when the middleclass demands to be treated fairly. I’d like to see how the GOP tries to spin their way out of the web PBO has so skillfully woven.

    30% responded “NO” to taxing millionaires more? Must be the people who think they too will be millionaires some day. Silly wabbits.
