    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.

    will raising the taxes on the evil rich get the elephant off the limb? Most of the Donkey States have already fallen off and look what it has gotten them. Florida and Texas are still writing thank you notes to NY and ILL. and California for raising taxes on a select few rich.
    Check out Britain who raised taxes just on the rich. Over half just packed up and left!

    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.

    Lets do this, U.S.-style:

    1) BREATH IN!!!!
    2) BREATH OUT!!!
    3) SAY YOU WANT TO SAVE THE REPUBLIC!!
    4) DO’ IT!
    5) DIE

    Easy, ain’t it?

    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…

    @Mr. King

    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.

    Hey, ANDERSON: The voters left Republicans in charge of the finances. Or are those election results YOU don’t like?

    Since the recession there are have been more than 500,000 new industrial jobs in America. Kind of makes these people who keep insisting unemployment is rising look rather foolish doesn’t it. This is from a German news feed I get at work… No American political bias at all. ………………………
    Global external news | Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung (December 10)
    US economy picking up
    Chemicals, machines and computers are increasingly being produced in the US again – partly due to the fact that energy is very cheap there. More than half a million industrial jobs have been created after the worst of the recession.

    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.html

    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.
