Yeah Buddy, raise taxes on the wealthy. What happens? They go somewhere else. The latest proof:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/france/9738178/Frances-Jean-Marc-Ayrault-slams-flight-of-the-greedy-rich.htmlBut really who cares. I’m not wealthy so it won’t hurt me…… much….LOLBut wait. 2% 4% 6% more isn’t that much. Let’s just let the current rate – that rate established by BUSH and reaffirmed by OBAMA (so called Bush tax cuts) expire. And while we are at it, let’s let the wonderful tax break given to everyone by Obama, the one he says helps the middle class so much expire as well. Oh yeah that is the payroll tax that was reduced by Obama. The tax the is specifically there to fund social security and medicare. Yeah, what a guy. Obama really looks out for Seniors. And sure raise the capital gains tax to the same level as regular income tax. That’s right NO BREAK for investing your money that has ALREADY been taxed once. That won’t affect me either. So no big deal. So now we have done all that and that gives us another 85 billion dollars a year. Now I’m all for the additional funds but – and be really honest with this – how does giving our current group of politicians more money to spend reduce the debt or even slow down deficit spending? So Motive, trout, Arod you guys tell me does the fact that we borrow 46 cents of every dollar spent matter to you? Does the fact that you – personally – owe 325K dollars as your share of the national debt register? And while you are at it answer this. According to the latest figures 97% of the tax burden is shouldered by 50% of the workers. Those that earn over 200K pay about 50% of the federal income taxes. That is only 5% of the tax payers. How exactly is this fair? Shouldn’t every worker pitch in not only the rich?But cry away because you too are going to be paying higher taxes soon.
