    Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden says that paying higher taxes is the patriotic thing to do for wealthier Americans.

    Biden says he and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama want to “take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people

    I completely agree with you.

    Yes, wealth distribution in the form of free education right on trhough to doctorate levels and free health care for all seems like an excellent way to help respond to the enormous income inequitey of this nation.

    Of course the devil is, as always in the details.

    Wealth distribution has already been done, they are taking the money we, the working class, paid for Social Security and used it....to give the wealthiest an income tax cut...

    REVERSE ROBINHOOD

    Taking from the middle class and the poor who pay SS taxes on all that they make and giving it to the wealthiest in an income tax break....stealing from the middle and poor to feed the RICHEST among us!!!!

    YEAH

    WEALTH DISTRIBUTION if there ever was any..... :eek: sad!

    What a bunch of crap. The republican party has been waging class warfare since Reagan. Now it's all the Dems.

    Progressive taxes are not class warfare.

    How many on these threads make over 250,000. Just interested.

    I hope you people are smart enough to realize that when the rich get taxed more, they raise the cost of their goods and pay their employees less.

    No, I don't make $250,000 a year, but my boss does. And I don't think he'd be happy with a...what was it - 12%, 18% - tax increase. You idiots see these charts that show Obama lowering all the taxes for "middle class" by less than 5% and you that big tax increase on the wealthy and get all giddy and think, "YES! Finally the people who own their own businesses are getting their just-dos! I get a tax cut and they have to pay more. Nyah nyah nyah nyah!"

    Seriously, don't you understand how taxation works? Businesses don't pay taxes, they make you pay taxes for them by raising the price of their goods and services. Then they donate large amounts of money to charity for tax breaks.

    Sigh...if only you understand...

    so individual income that is suseptible to income tax is NOW ALL Business money and not people's individual income?

    And if you are speaking of Corporate/business taxes, it is true that it is passed on to the consumer....the CONSUMER that is actually BUYING the Service or product, which is how it should be....

    Those NOT BUYING what the corporations are selling should not be paying the corps taxes, don't ya think Sanders?

    care

    I would love to be able to pay ONLY 35% in taxes on my profits after all of my EXPENSES ARE PAID!

    i'd be paying near zero taxes on my gross income if i could deduct all travel for getting to work, my food, my insurance, paying my maid, all my medical expenses, all my purchases to keep my household together, my electric, my fuel etc.... :D

    You know who else said the wealthy should pay more to show patriotism?

    Lenin, Marx, and Stalin.
