    Just as many people in all areas of society do the wrong thing to keep a job...

    As stated SO many times.. I will vote for a higher tax rate on 'the rich', when everyone else's taxes on every dollar is at the same exact level.. but the funny thing is, I bet THEN you will have people calling for spending cuts and tax cuts... quite different when YOU have a stake in the game and don't just use government to put the screws to someone else

    :lol: You really think Tom Coburn needs to worry about keeping his job in bright red Oklahoma, especially since he has no plans of running again?

    Coburn reaffirms term-limit pledge, won't run in 2016 - The Hill's Floor Action

    It's called critical thinking, Jim. I realize you have trouble with just basic thought processes because you are not well educated, but practice makes perfect, so who knows. There may still be hope for you.

    Any senator who would listen to Boehner or McConnell is nutz. Any House Republican is as well. Grover Norquist is causing enough trouble, I think the voters are going to get pretty pissed if McConnell, Boehner and Norquist don't stop this appeasing of the wealthiest among us.

    Let it go man! You win some and you lose some...or in the case of the GOP. You will lose LOTS in the future. Dogma is a dying virtue for the old white man's party.

    Everyone's taxes (income anyway, er, payroll)is the exact same. Everyone pays the same amount on the first 10,000 they earn, the first 20,000, the first 2 billion....

    The unfairness comes in by having different tax rates for different types of income.
