    Before the trolls arrive: let’s have the wealthy pay a fair tax, instead of less than everyone else.
    And no, that does not kill the economy. Nor does giving the wealthy a tax cut spur the economy. That is proven quite obviously by every tax cut from the Reagan era on.

    Since the raise in incomes in the past 30 years mostly went to the top 2%, with wages on lower earnings stagnant or regressing after health expenditures, it’s clear that top incomes should keep the huge tax cuts from the Bush wonder years, and the deficit should be balanced entirely on the backs of the poor.

    I love the fact a 4% increase will kill off all the rich, all investment, and shut down all businesses in the U.S.. Of course defense spending under Boehner goes up another $2 TRILLION, but Santa will bring him the cash to give to GE, Lockheed Martin, and the other contractors, whooppee doo!

    To make the gov’t bigger and give more entitlments to those that won’t work because it’s been shown that entitlement benefits are bigger now than having to go WORK for it the old fashion way? No thank you! $168 a day for sitting on your BUTT, whereas the median income person that WORKS makes $137 a day. Buncha leeches…

    Not only do you talk to yourself, but you call yourself the wrong name. You are a new breed of crazy and I fear for the future.

    Yeah Buddy, raise taxes on the wealthy. What happens? They go somewhere else. The latest proof:

    But really who cares. I’m not wealthy so it won’t hurt me…… much….LOL

    But 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.

    Even raising the taxes a lot will barely scratch the surface of our deficit, let alone paying off our debt. We’ve got to cut entitlements. Frankly I’m for cutting some defense too.

    The best way to afford to buy a new house, car, and airplane, is of course to quit your job, and income, and borrow. THAT is “Reaganomics” and the “no taxes” Republican “plan”, period.

    Normally trout you make some kind of sense but this time I find it hard to comprehend where you are coming from. Forget republican/democrat for a second.

    You and you compatriots want to supply the needs of the population with tax revenue and yet you do not want to require some form of quid pro quo. OK fine. How do you intend to provide every citizen with a comfortable life style? I’m not saying it can’t be done but it hasn’t ever been done before so what makes it different now?

    You denigrate conservative ideas and yet you have no alternative to the system we have in place now. All you want to do is take from the “rich”. Do you really think that you can accomplish all you want much less all you will need to do with even the entire accumulated wealth of the current rich?

    And just for your information the quit your job and borrow is not reaganomics and republicans do not say “no taxes”. Those people you so casually condemn are supporting every government program in existence at this time.

    What in the heck made you say something that stupid?

    “…..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….”
    I disagree with this notion that capital gains should be given a tax break because they have already been taxed once. Sure, the income invested has already been taxed, but so what? As a dollar circulates and multiplies throughout the economy, it will be taxed several times as it becomes income at a number of different levels. Nothing wrong or unusual about that – its how the economy works. But the capital gain from that investment has NOT been taxed to that individual. And why should capital gains income that can be used just as surely to buy stuff and enhance the recipient’s life be treated any differently than income from labor?
    The fact that so many are prepared to defend these tax breaks to the rich is testimony to the effectiveness of the rich and powerful in loading the system in their favor. Thankfully, a few honest men and true patriots life Warren Buffett, who have the genuine welfare of the nation at heart are questioning the practice. (Having said that, I enjoy my capital gains.)
