    In their desire to attack the 'Rich' the Dems are willing to raise taxes on EVERYONE.

    That should teach those 'Rich' people a lesson. I hope the Dems are happy to throw everyone under the bus to feed their desire to attack the 'Rich' and hard working citizens. :cuckoo::cuckoo::cuckoo:

    Uh. They've been on that trajectory for years.

    Back in 1913, the definition of the Evul Rich was people who made more than $11 Million per year in 2010 dollars - and they were taxed at a marginal rate of 7%.

    Now, the Evul Rich are upper middle class people who make $250,000 per year, and the Dems's want to tax them at a marginal rate of 36%.

    The trend is headed towards the government taking away everything above a federally determined subsistence level which excludes incandescent light bulbs, full flush toilets, properly heated homes, and red meat.

    Just because they earn it doesn't mean they are entitled to keep it. The libs see everyone's income as their money and they and they think they are entitled to keep as much as they want.

    Class Warfare at its worst. Most people have had it with the Socialist/Progressive nutters. They just gave us the Worst U.S. Congress in History. Time for them to go. Come on January!

    lowering taxes doesnt necessarily lead to a rise in economic activity. we need only look back at the Clinton administration. during which time he raised taxes on the top 2% of earners to a marginal rate of 39%. this led to huge economic booms.

    IMHO we could end all of this "class warfare" if we simply imposed a flat tax across the board to everyone. for argument sake lets say 15%. then it wouldnt matter how much you make as an individual or family, everyone would be paying the same rate all the time.

    is this a viable compromise?

    and its not about "screwing" the rich. but when someone making $50,000 annually pays more of a percentage of their income to taxes than someone making $1,000,000 annually. there is something wrong with the system.

    Ever notice that EVERY scheme they throw at us involves taking money from people? They're basically a bunch of pickpockets.

    Pickpockets? No. Pickpackets don't use force. Robbers do.
