    If only we increased taxes on the wealthy, greedy corporations, estates, capital gains, and profits more the economy would improve dramatically........

    Just think of all the jobs govt would be able to "create" with all that tax revenue LOL

    The only way to help the poor and middle class is by raising their taxes while removing all of their safety nets.....oh yeah, we should also decrease the tax rates for our richest citizens. Voila, middle class prosperity and no more poor people!

    I protest vehemently that multimillionaires like Mitt Romney be expected to pay more than 14% in tax like the rest of us.

    Where would the America be today if it weren't for the wealthiest 1% reinvesting all those billions in government tax cuts into the private sector resulting in millions of good paying US jobs - and making the nation's economy the envy of the world?

    If you have a tried-and-true economic formula that works, why would you ever consider abandoning it?

    "Progressives" only use of increased tax revenues would be to enslave dependent parasites on the welfare plantation and purchase their clueless votes...............

    You're right. We need to end the horrific Bush tax cuts to the rich and go back to the wildly successful Clinton plan, which did just that.

    A flat tax of 20% would be more then enough confiscated tax dollars to waste on bureaucrats mindless schemes..................

    Although it might not satisfy the looters demands for the fiction of "social justice"

    We are not RESPONSIBLE for the responsibilities of the poor, the middle class, the upper class, the lower middle class, the upper lower class, or any other class...

    The problem is that from the onset, there should NEVER have been an exemption to make more and more people have a zero federal income tax bill.. now we are in an "ah HA" moment that you progressives LOVE.. because ANY increase in taxes at all to those paying zero, you start crying about it being huge a huge burden... well, quite frankly, that burden was postponed long enough and it is finally time to pay the piper.. much like getting a 0% introductory rate on a credit card, the freebie period eventually runs out

    Now... you and ones like you also love to complain when the 'evil rich' only pay around 15% because they only pay capital gains... well, a 20% flat tax with zero exceptions, zero deductions, and zero loopholes should make you happy then

    Please show where higher taxation CAUSES prosperity... and please remember that coincidence does not equal causation
