Stop coddling the super-rich: Buffett - Yahoo! News
Apparently, this is so important that we need two threads on it.
that this nation, under $God$, shall have a new birth of $freedom$—and that government of the super rich, by the super rich, for the super rich, shall not perish from the earth.
Buffett can pay as much as he wants to the government. Why does he have to be forced?
Living in a society means people working together to achieve a common goal, not individual efforts. Strange concept for you I'm sure.
according to the T-Pubs, they aren't "obscenely rich", they're "job-creators"
So forcing the rich to pay MORE than their fair is people working together?
The wealthiest 1 percent of the population earn 19 per*cent of the income but pay 37 percent of the income tax.
The top 5 percent earns 33 percent and pays 57 percent of the income tax.
The top 10 percent earns 44 percent and pays 68 pecent...... Top 25 percent earns 66 and pays 85 percent of the income tax.
The bottom 50 percent earns 13 percent and pays 3 percent in income tax.
Somehow those numbers don't reflect society "working together" but more like the bottom half feeding off the top half.
And you idiot liberals wants the top to pay even more. And you wonder why they operate overseas outside our tax code.
How many jobs have you gotten from a poor man?
I worked as a mover for 11 years. We moved plenty of poor people.
Don't call them obscenely wealthy They're, according to the T/Repub playbook, job-creators. No matter that real wages haven't gone up in going on 40 yrs
