    Fiscal Strength



    You can view the signatures at their site.

    Interesting idea they have.

    That's not fiscal strength.

    It's either buying an indulgence from serious self-loathing, or suicidal.

    How are the middle class tax cuts "paid for," but those for upper income earners not?

    I was under the impression that "rich people" have many ways to hide their money when taxes are high because they don't need to spend it. More or less, rich people spend/invest less when taxes are high because they can afford to. Tax cuts allow for investments with less loss of capital, making investing more appealing...

    The ultra rich could pay 90% of their earnings to government anytime they want.

    Why don't they?
