    Poll Finds 4 in 10 in U.S. Favor Ending Tax Cuts for Wealthy - SFGate

    So yeah...How come the Republicans in Congress aren't behind what the majority of the nation wants again?

    That's like polling me to see if I favor you being banned.

    Of course they're in favor of "taxing SOMEONE ELSE"


    Idiot

    Oh, so you agree that Congressional Republicans are ignoring the will of the majority of the country then? Thanks!

    So you're in the 1% then? Is that why you care so much about them being asked to pay four more cents on their dollar? Why exactly ARE you a shill for the 1%?

    Hey asswipe -

    Who are the "wealthy?"

    Once you hit XX as a net worth - you're wealthy.

    What's the value of XX

    (that means insert a number asswipe)

    There is what's so called party principle, it does not mean that because the majority of the nation supports something you have to go along with them. At least, you have to stand for something that you believe. If the republican were to support a tax hike on the wealthiest american, they would have to run away from what they hold dear to them.

    Hey, dumbshit. "4 in 10" and "44 percent" is not a majority.

    Also, a higher percent than that said it would either have no effect or would cause harm!

    So it looks like the GOP is going with the majority, after all.

    And that poll would turn out a lot different if the American people were asked if they were willing pay more taxes themselves.

    Hey Dummy, read much? The wealthy, as defined by the tax code, in this story, and everywhere else in the goddamned world is those making $250,000 a year or more.

    You're right. It's not a majority.

    My mistake.

    Edit: I should have said that those who favor taxing the rich at a higher rate are just about double those that don't. But you are right that technically it's not a majority.
