    Senate could vote on millionaire tax bill

    The Senate as early as Wednesday could vote on a "Sense of the Senate" bill that says taxpayers earning $1 million or more each year should "make a more meaningful contribution to the deficit-reduction effort."

    The bill, titled the "Sense of the Senate on Shared Sacrifice," was introduced last week by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). Reid filed at cloture motion on the bill on Tuesday afternoon, meaning a vote to end debate could take place as early as late Wednesday or, more likely, Thursday.

    The bill has no specific recommendations on how much taxes should be raised on high-income earners, and is simply a recommendation that these taxpayers pay more. Because the 60 votes needed to end debate are unlikely to materialize, the vote will likely be used by Democrats as a way to show Republican resistance to new tax hikes.

    Democrats might also try to use the vote as leverage in negotiations on how to raise the debt ceiling by showing that there is support for a tax increase. In those talks, which are expected to continue this week, Democrats have said taxes on the wealthy and on oil companies should be part of the equation for reducing the deficit. Republicans have so far rejected this, and argue that an agreement needs to focus solely on spending cuts.

    How is reverting to previous tax rates a redistribution of wealth?

    Until every man is taxed at the same rate and until the 45% of Americans that pay zero in federal income tax each year finally pay their fair share, it is wealth redistribution. The progressive income tax system is un-Constitutional.

    Taking the money from one pocket and putting it into the pocket of another is what then exactly?

    Do you even know why the progressive tax system was put in? I bet you don't or choose to ignore it.

    It was to create income equality. That's a lot different then socialism or whatever you want to call it. Every successful country in the world uses a progressive tax system. It works and the thriving middle class in this country over the last 50 or so years proves it.
