    Translation: I read something of HuffPo or ThinkProgress and I am posting it because I defer all my thinking to others.

    Great idea.

    But the time to put in the fire repression system isn't when the house is burning down.

    It's really not quite that black and white. Generally, we as a society sort of like roads, the judicial system, defense and such. Have to pay for that somehow.

    Then praying for yourself is a good start.

    Do you EVER have a original thought or do you just let the Hufferpost and thinkProgess do your thinking for you?

    The revenue gain isn't with the rich. There aren't enough of them.

    The real gain would be made by a middle class tax hike. Thats where the money is.

    Flylo. Lets raise everyones taxes.

    I'm absolutely sure the economy would come roaring back. Yep. Raise everyones taxes.

    Most of the money is with a middle class take hike while the rich are sitting on trillions they refuse to spend on job creation, do you even have a facking clue? If thats the casew why aren't YOU volunteering to pay more of your own money?
