    LIbs: How much can the government morally take from me and you? Would 100 percent be moral? More than half? Half? A nominal amount to pay for public interests that the private market otherwise won't accomplish? None?

    We are not discussing top rate of those making above $1 million a year. We are discussing the 'Middle Class'. Oh, I forgot Maobama has destroyed the middle Class in the last 4 years. They are now the poor. There's only those poor that work and pay their taxes and those that are dependent on Gov't welfare.
