    Glenn Hubbard, Romney Economic Adviser: 'Bulk Of The Adjustment' Should Be Borne By The Wealthy

    Mr Etch A Sketch has always said just the opposite so I wonder if he has been told what he has "on the table". For that matter, I wonder if Mitt's one percent cronies know good ole Mittens is planning to engage in some "class warfare".

    Gotta love the Clown Car Politicians.

    Gotta love the middle-class shitheads who defend the under-taxed (relatively speaking) rich.

    Answer the questions.

    How much should taxes go up for the rich?

    How much revenue will it bring in?

    Where does *all* of that revenue go?

    Will there be any economic fallout due to these higher taxes as history has shown since the begging of taxing people?

    What is the annual deficit after these taxes are collected and the money is spent?

    You wont get those answers because the reality of the situation is that even if you tax the rich at 90%, which would be political and economic suicide, it would still not touch the deficit spending we have going on. Not to mention the capital flight would ensue worse than it is now.

    It's a talking point for political pandering adn has no basis in reality of deficit/debt burdens of the US.

    Mitt Romney, unsurprisingly, will say anything, just like Obama, to garner support for his Comedian n Chief position.

    I'm not sure you even know wtf you just said... What I said was 100% right, sooooo.... How are "the poor" losing when they get LOTS of stuff from the Government, federal and state yet pay ZERO taxes? They gets schools, military, roads, parks, fire/police and everything else yet pay either zero in taxes or maybe a few thousand or hundred in taxes a year. On top of that many get SS/MC/MC and other forms of welfare yet never paid anything close to what they take out of the system.
