Boortz nails it today:

“Multi-millionaire Senator and presidential candidate John Edwards is running a blatant class warfare advertisement in primary states. In the ad he talks about two health care systems, two education systems … ‘one for the haves, and one for everybody else.’  The ad also says we have two tax systems, ‘… where the wealthy and corporations pay less, and working families pay more.’ 

What in the hell is he talking about? 

In this country 97% of all income taxes are paid by the top 50% of income earners.  That means that the bottom 50% of income earners are paying virtually none … a paltry 3% of the tax burden.  The top 1% of income earners earn less than 18% of all income, but they pay 38% of all income taxes.  Every single year the tax burden gets shifted more and more to the high income earners.  And here comes John Edwards saying that we have two tax systems in America where the rich pay less and the working families pay more?

Question: How does he get away with this blatant nonsense?  Answer: Because he knows full well that ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the news networks will not, under any circumstances, give you the same statistics that I just related.  In other words, the Washington and New York press corps will protect his class warfare rhetoric by withholding the truth.”
