12. My very wealthy brother admits as much. No shame at all.

He has two homes on the beach in Maine, one for personal use, one for rental. His primary residence in New Hampshire is over 4,000 sf and is absolutely stunning. He also has a 3500 sq ft penthouse in Delray Beach, FL.

On a recent visit to his beach house my wife was pretty blunt with him. She asked him "With all you have, all the cars, all the houses, all the money, what would change in your life if you had to pay more in income taxes?"

My brother was unabashed in his response: "It wouldn't effect me at all. My life wouldn't change in the slightest. It's just the principle. I shouldn't have to pay for anyone else." Another Republican who made his nut now wants everyone else to piss off and leave him alone. He has enough money and property to survive anything the economy can throw at him. That's the underlying philosophy of our Congress. They're rich as shit, so who cares what anyone else thinks.
