This is a good word it means:
needless repetition of an idea, especially in words other than those of the immediate context, without imparting additional force or clearness
Barack Hoover Obama and his cheerleaders on the left repeat this mantra over and over, more taxes on millionaires and billionaires. But what about clearness:
In other words, if you favor raising taxes on millionaires and billionaires what is your number and what do you want to do with the money that is raised?
This is why polls indicating respondents overwhelming support higher taxes on millionaires and billionaires are irrelevant.
A much better poll would be to poll the US Senate to see if they believe in taxing the rich the way BHO wants to tax the rich. Right now the poll would be about 60% against and 40% in favor. Rich, at present, meaning anyone filing an income tax return with more than 200K of adjusted gross income or is it just income from W-2, or is it income from Schedule C or interest or capital gains or from retirement accounts. “Let me be clear”, which is one of the President’s favorite speech lines is being lost here.
This would be a much more relevant poll than to ask anyone who would talk to you on the phone, if they favored taxing people other than themselves.
