    No, his money earned the money. The money that his money earned should be taxed at double the tax rate that people pay who worked for their money, not half like it is now. Bring back the tax rates on the rich that were in effect during the 1950’s and 1960’s. Restore the Glass Steagall act. Seize the assets stored offshore in tax havens and keep all of it for use by the government for the good of the people. Universal healthcare for we the people.

    If Romney gets a deduction for the horse, does Ryan get a deduction for half a horse? After all, he was the back end of the ticket.

    Fink, if you don’t believe in America, why do you live here?

    He’ll keep creating jobs too — only the jobs are sweatshop child labor in China and Indonesia.

    He also has 3 or 4 houses, Ann’s multiple Cadillacs, his car elevator, and the chance to go to The Caymans and Switzerland to visit his tax free millions…

    Now he can settle down and be a Koch brother (named Romney).

    Romney is an unemployed bum.

    @Mr. King

    And then blame others for the high unemployment rate. And a bunch of “lazy 47% bums.”

    There’s an attitude I see that I don’t understand. So many of the hyper-patriotic, “America is the best country ever, love it or leave it!” types will turn a blind eye towards the millionaires/billionaires who send and invest their money all over the world. It’s like the “job creators” are saying “this country isn’t good enough for my money”, but the ultra-patriots just shrug their shoulders and say “well, they’re rich, so they must be smart and correct”.
    But saying something about that means I’m jealous, want to steal their money and incite class warfare, apparently.

    Since the 1980s, the tax burden has consistently shifted away from business (save your retort about the tax rate for business: if you paid ANY income tax at all last year, you paid more than General Electric….what a bunch of whining moochers who feel they deserve a handout….) and from investors to the working stiff. I don’t have a problem with being wealthy. I wish it for all of us. On the other hand, it is not fair for me to be asked to prop up banks to the tune of hundreds of billions when, after 30+ years of being a doctor, I had a real problem getting a business line of credit to enhance my practice.

    The tax laws are set up so that the majority of the taxes come from working folks. People who have money to invest, and people who inherit, have a far smaller tax burden, and this is what the working people find unfair.

    Also, there’s the matter of presentation: the estate tax being called a “death tax” for example. How many people know that the first $1.3 million is exempt from taxes, or that this is doubled in the event of a family farm? Is it really a burden to have to pay taxes on the balance after you inherit $2.6 million tax-free? Evidently, according to Republicans, the answer is, “Hell, yeah.” Sorry, I have little sympathy.

    Please don’t confuse this with jealousy. You want jealousy, ask me what I think of people who shout in a rhythmic fashion, call it “music”, and make bazillions.

    When you consider that the number of psychopaths, those that have little or no empathy towards others, is estimated at 10% on Wall Street and in the general public 1%. And that those that feel this way are the top performers in the “dog eat dog world” of high finance. Then it’s understandable that in a world that rewards these individuals as examples to be admired, and gives them the title of “job creators”, when in many cases their contribution to society was the merger and acquisition of an already formed business; and its breakup into smaller pieces, so as to take advantage of tax laws allowing them access to pension accounts and the selling off of the remaining assets, sometimes to China. These same “job creators” have enough wealth that a small percentage payoff in the right hands can deliver massive returns later. For example the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act and it’s replacement with the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act, can you remember Phil Gramm’s quote, “we have sort of become a nation of whiners", yes, don’t critisize the “job creators” or you’re a “whiner” or “jealous” or whatever new word Frank Luntz can find has the right feel to keep his clients happy.
    At the first sign of “regulation” or a “tax increase”, the cash starts to flow to those that are willing to buy into the idea that this country is more about the accumulation of money than fairness to the individual.
