    All I ever hear from Obama and the dems is they want the rich to "pay their fair share". Well how much is that exactly? You do realize the new ObamaCare law raises taxes on them already, right? When half of the people don't pay income tax at all, and some even get money they didn't pay in, I'm just wondering how much is enough? Why aren't they paying their fair share too?

    In 1986 the top tax rate was 50%.

    As if the federal rate was the only thing paid.


    Jealousy, greed are just a few of the factors.

    Everybody needs to pay thier fair share equally....thus the "flat tax". However...Obama and the Dems don't throw out that "rich pay their fair share" half as much as conservative media ssays they do. For everytime someone says it...conservative media repeats it 100 times.

    The thing that gets me is......the rich, $1,000,000/year and up...make up an incredibly small part of the GOP, yet the GOP has all the guys making less than that fighting thier battles. I don't get that, because the rich don't share, so why carry their water? Conservative media...has a lot of rich guys, like Rush, O'Reilly, Hannity, etc talking everyday Republicans into championing their cause IMO.

    Wrong, idiot. What most Americans, not Socialists because there really aren't that many true Socialists in the US, want is to see the wealthy pay somewhere close to the actual rates. In 2010, the top 1% only paid a combined 17%. Most in the middle class paid at least 25% to 35% when you also include FICA taxes. You see, the very top 1% pays very little percentage wise in FICA taxes.

    They would have to get rid of the 13th amendment to do that.

    And they are the ones who shout about racism, priceless.
