    Confiscating all the wealth of all billionaires wouldn't pay for gov't. So why do Liberals think a tax hike will? :confused:

    Reduce taxes for everyone. Why do you continually segregate?

    Because it is not a matter of the advantages of taxing the wealthy.

    It is a matter of "fuck the rich"

    It is a jealousy thing.

    Yeah, and nearly half of ALL Americans pay ZERO tax...what the hell is the point?

    Every damn fool with a brain knows the tax code needs to be trashed...all 57 THOUSAND pages and replaced by a single, no exemptions, no exceptions, no protected classes rate on GROSS INCOME to make the tax code EQUAL for all and make it so everyone has skin in the game!

    A flat 6-8% tax on GROSS income is EQUAL for all. If you earn a dollar IN this country or FROM this country...you pay 6 cents in tax on that dollar.

    Companies like GE, you know, the company whose CEO is Obama's Job Czar, who earned 5 BILLION dollars inside the US and 9 BILLION overseas and payed ZERO in tax would have paid 840 MILLION in tax.

    This country was founded on EQUAL protections and the principle that all men are created EQUAL. On the principle that we all have equal opportunities and protections...whatEVER those opportunities and protections are. Not fair or any such nonsense!

    The current tax code is unconstitutional, immoral and so corrupted that the only option is to trash it and start over. If you are so damn concerned...educate your self what America's founding principles REALLY are and elect representatives that support those principles.

    Otherwise, your just another whining, petulant child looking for something for nothing!

    If Barry were really after revenue he'd go after the middle class. Thats where the money is as there are hundreds of thousands in that class. ChaChing.

    There just aren't enough rich folks to make a difference.

    Barry can't run on his sucky record so class warfare is the only way for him to go.

    I have no problem with a flat tax as long as it applies to ALL income, including capital gains, with NO loop holes.
