Millionaires Support Warren Buffetts Tax on the Rich - The Wealth Report - WSJ
And nothing is stopping them from writing out a check "Payable to US Treasury Department"...
Yeah, sure they do. It's easy to say so they look like little Warren Buffett's,but just write the check
well then, when those they polled OFFER to DONATE all their millions to the Federal Guberment, I will have much more respect for them
And that is a really ridiculous argument. Nothing is stopping neocon war hawks from sending THEIR children off to fight the wars they get us in to either...
If we are going to recover from our economic woes, we need more revenue. We can't only cut our way to any kind of prosperity.
You can't cut enough to pay for the wars, the unpaid for tax cuts and the unpaid for Medicare part D. We need more revenue and a large majority of millionaires recognize it. Why can't the GnOP?
Yep, they should subsidize all those who don't want to pay more.
LOL, yet you want them all to subsidize the useless
OMG. gawd FORBID the Guberment has to CUT something. No lets just dump it on the heads of the people WHO WORK.
Arguing to the wrong guy. I'm all for making having a family member in the military a requirement for public office. We'd fight less war then.
(Although we don't have "children" in the military. We have serious adults who made a conscious decision to serve their country.)
I don't disagree that we will probably have to raise taxes on the rich and the middle class. But before we get ANYWHERE near doing that, the government has to demonstrate that it can budget responsibly.
I've never seen a tax increase at any level that wasn't immediately followed by a spending increase.
Yep. The Govt has to quite spending like money grows on a tree.
And seriously if revenue is their game then the middle class is the place to go. Sure you can tax the rich but there aren't enough of them to make a difference. Middle class, loaded.
IMO this is nothing more than a class warfare ploy. Tax the Rich even when taxinig the rich doesn't amount to a hill of beans in the revenue dept.
As for those millionaires who say they arent' taxed enough, let em write a check to the IRS. The Govt will take their money no questions asked.
