    That we should raise taxes on the wealthy in our time of need. So who are all these people in congress who are against it and why?

    I say tighten up deductions, work on elimination of abuse, get overhead down, get rid of programs that don't work, bring some of our troops home, and get rid of the last TAX cut for any income over 25,000.
    Then put a 2% add on for all income over 250,000.
    Take SS tax all the way up to 1/2 million for workers and base SS on need. every dollar in income over 50,000 cost you .25 cents off your monthly SS payment.

    Republicans come on now, your always saying you was sent to washington to do what the people wanted, well 81% want you to raise taxes esp on those at the top.

    Yes, let's squash economic growth even more so that a larger portion of the population will become government dependents.

    Great idea.

    How do you do that good man, we have cut taxes mainly at the top for 10 years now and have seen no growth or new jobs because of it, all we have seen is the rich get richer and the poor are attacking each other for what they have that the other guy doesn't, but don't tough those at the top, they need the money. LOL you guys are really goofy.

    Under Eisenhower, a republican, the richest were taxed at 91%. That was when we got our interstate highway system.

    Got a link? Oh I guess if you did you would have provided it? Even if your percentage is true, which I doubt it is, Those other 19% are creating jobs. Exactly why is it that you people can't get that through your Socialist heads? You piss and moan about not finding a job, but then you want to bankrupt those who create them. Can't have it both ways friend. ~BH

    If they want to create jobs, start taxing imports like we get taxed for our exports!!!!!!!!!!
    Start making countries that import to follow international law and treat their people with respect and fairness.

    Chuck Todd reported it on TV. But I have heard and read it many times before.

    I think hes saying the bottom 81 percent of tax payers would want a tax hike. Im for evening out the wealth gap in this country but it cant be done thru taxes as the govt is as corrupt and much more wasteful than any corporation or wealthy individual. Eliminate the Fed!
