Taxing the Wealthy vs. Taking the "Working Class"

I heard it again tonight.  On Hannity, Joe Sestak ("Ih..did not offer a job to that guy Sexact...uh Sextact, I mean he would leave pull out...Ih mean..withdraw....from the primary") stated we need to give some relief to the "working class" and should therefore increase taxes on "the wealthy".  Hannity gave it a pass.  The correct response is for Hannity to ask whether or not Sestak thinks people who make over $250,000 a year "work" for a living or if they, instead won some sort of lottery...or maybe inherited their wealth?

This is "income tax".  It is a tax on money people earn.  Money people work for.  People increase their wealth by working for it.
