    Time for liberals to get behind this bill and support it. After all they don't think they are taxed enough!!

    House passes new Buffett Rule - Washington Times

    I am sure this bill will never see the light of day in the do-nothing Harry Reid Senate...

    What an excellent bill!

    From JayZ and Beyonce to old Warren and hey let us not forget Soros if they want to give more now, they have the opportunity to show how much they beleive in "paying their fair share".

    :eusa_clap:

    I think American Liberals should go with what do you think , 75%? Sounds good. Like France.

    Why stop at 75%? Government knows best. They should be forced to give every penny earned past $50,000. Why reward hard work? Besides, they don't need all that money...

    I sent enough money in to the IRS this past Monday to support a third world country.

    I would totally love to see Mitt's tax returns for the past 10 years but for some reason he's hiding them.

    :confused:

    1. It's embarrassing how much I pay in taxes.

    2. I'm not running for president.

    What's Mitt's excuse?

    What does this have to do with the thread or the bill?

    Oh, it's all about others giving their hard earned money, not yours. I see now, I finally understand.

    He might be one of the 47% for a few of those years.

    LOL. Let us see. A very good decade for the US was the '50's. So, let's go back to that tax rate.
