    If someone is rich enough to have a private jet, do they really deserve a tax break? I mean, come on!!! Here's what I would do. Let us working stiffs pay only 15% tax on our income and make the uber wealthy pay 35% for a while. I'm sick of the people who need the least help with taxes passing legislation and writing tax code that benefits them obscenely. Aren't you? When do we, the middle class, get a significant break?

    Ughh, the same ole drivel.

    The rich pay the most so it makes perfect sense that they get the most back.

    Class Warfare is all this President and Democrats have left. They have failed so miserably. Now it's time for them to consult Saul Alinsky's 'Rules for Radicals' and pull out all the dirty tricks. One of Alinsky's biggest rules is to divide the people. Pitting American against American is a big part of "Community Organizing." This President is just falling back on what he knows. His Jet rant was just plain ignorant. His own Stimulus included Tax Breaks for Jet Owners. Jet owners didn't get us into this awful mess either. This President and many other Politicians did that. Now they're just deflecting and covering for themselves. Scapegoating the Taxpayers is all the rage with Socialists/Progressives these days. That's just wrong a pretty low. The Taxpayers didn't spend us into Hell. The Government did that. So Class Warfare really is all they have left. They have to divide the People. Saul Alinsky would be so proud of the Democrats.

    How many "jobs" do you suppose that jet provides?

    Manufacturing
    Mechanics
    Parts suppliers
    Pilots
    Training schools
    Flight stewards

    Anyone notice the trickle down effect?

    How many taxes are raised because of each jet sold and the jobs it creates.


    Stupidity has no limits apparently.

    No they don't pay the most. I pay 35% and some crook pushing money around (many of the same crooks that tanked the economy of the WHOLE EFFING WORLD in the first place) pays 15% without producing ANYTHING - how is that fair? Then he can afford lawyers to help him hide the rest. The rich DO NOT pay their share. Also, why is 100% of my income taxed for SS but only a small fraction of someone making over 100K? How is THAT fair?

    You pay millions in taxes? If your paying 35% you either need to fire your accountant or hire one if your doing them yourself.

    The rich do pay the majority of the taxes collected in this country.

    Hows about we implement the Fair Tax and do away with the income tax altogether?
