    Taxes go up in Britain and Revenues go down as the wealth hide or leave.

    This is exactly why liberals don’t get it. Taxing can go only so high before the overall impact is a negative.

    Excessive taxation will always be countered by the movement of assets to less punishing environments resulting in the flight of capital and investment...

    A perfect way to increase tax revenues eh ?

    Many here advocate a 90 percent rate.

    Liberals are oblivious to history, especially when it comes to other failed governments.

    Liberalism is a mental disorder.

    Like that PINKO COMMIE DWIGHT EISENHOWER?

    Hell, he paid off America's WW2 debt and built the interstate system and ALL the infrastructure that present day teabaggers enjoyed as they aged, but think their posterity can do without.

    Yes, heaven forfend we raise taxes to what they were back when American middle class upward mobility was the envy of the entire world. We can't have the workers sharing in the gains of the fruits of their labor. MANAGEMENT and shareholders should get all the dough....I mean where would the workers be without the BRAINS and inherited wealth of the upper classes, right?

    Here's a blurb from the OP link...another thing that has happened to the USA.
    It's the TAX STRUCTURE that sends jobs overseas.

    Obama and the dupes that follow him know this...they just don't care. They want the higher taxes....thinking the treasury will be flooded with excess money to give away.

    Liberalism is a mental disorder!

    It has only failed 10,000 times before. Let's try it again because we know the result will be different this time.
