    Everybody should pay fifty percent of their income in Federal Taxes. That is after the first $40,000 in income which should be Tax Free. That $40,000 will be called the subsistence income and everybody in the United States will be allowed that.

    I believe in what is fair is fair. Income Taxes shall and WILL be uniform across the nation and across the economic classes....

    Why should anyone have to pay 50% of what they make over $40,000 to a government that's bloated and inefficient? I work hard for my money. Before I give it to the Feds I'd like to see the government value the money I give them as much as I do. Get back to me when they aren't blowing billions on Solyndra and the Chevy Volt.

    50%. Seems a bit high to me.:eek:
    As the song says, "If 10% is good enough for Jesus it ought to be enough for Uncle Sam."

    Or missile defense?

    I love how you CONZ complain about investments in new technologies and look to cut them off as if investment in our future is a bad bet. How much has been spent on missile defense? Oh a couple HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS Do we have a missile defense system that can shoot down enemy missiles? NO.

    But I bet you still support funding for researching into Reagan's peace shield, don't you?

    Taxes should be progressive. Top earners should pay what they were under that Pinko Commie Eisenhower.

    Nope.. tax 20% on all income. No exceptions, no exemptions no excuses. We all should have some skin in this game.

    VERY SIMPLE! The United States is Trillions of Dollars in Debt after the bailout of the Banks. We have to balance the budget and we need to do it as of yesterday.

    I believe a totally fair and equitable and uniform tax like that will solve our problems.

    Amen! Praise God for logical solutions for our problems.
