    And the American public can survive never ending tax increases until we're paying more in taxes than we keep... right?

    Where does it end? Thing is, obama has seen to it that it CAN'T. Not now. He and his liberal jack ass parade have spent so much fucking money, now comes the beginning of the end. Get ready. Things are about to get REAL INTERESTING.

    That's federal income tax - of which only 50 percent pay. "Hidden taxes" on products are regressive. But keep drinking the Kool Aid.

    Oh and most state taxes are rising. But that has nothing to do with the feds, right?

    But not with even MORE millions paying no income tax at all.... tax those ~50% not paying at the same rate as 'the rich'... see what kind of support you get for a tax increase then

    The article was about income tax, silly.

    The states keep raising taxes because they've lost so much property tax revenue because of the financial meltdown. Have you been sleeping?

    Don't think he was only referring to state taxes, ravi... if you think there will not be tax increases of the middle class on the federal level, you are really drinking the kool aid and fooling yourself
