    Is there a law that limits the amount of taxes you can pay? Or can you give more to the government if you want to?

    If you can give as much as you want, do you liberals give extra money to help finance federally funded abortions, or federally funded ACORN, etc... I bet if you did, with all of the rock stars and actors and all of their money I bet you could fund most of these things you want, so why don't you guys do that so the people who don't believe in abortion, and ACORN, etc. don't have to pay for it? If you really have the best interest of the people in mind wouldn't this be the best way to go about doing this? Then the middle class, who can't afford more taxes, wouldn't have to pay more taxes...

    Here is what I found.. so technically you are right.

    Activists Push Bush to Cut Funds for Abortion Clinics
    Posted by Jacob Goldstein May 23, 2008

    The feds distribute some $280 million a year to subsidize birth control and other reproductive and preventive health care for low-income patients. The money can’t be used to pay for abortions, but it can go to clinics that use other sources of funding to perform abortions.

    Last year alone, according to Planned Parenthood’s own annual report, it received more than a third of its nearly $1 billion budget from government grants and contracts. And again, according to its own annual report, Planned Parenthood performed more than a quarter of a million abortions last year alone.


    “My point in offering this amendment today is that millions of pro-life Americans should not be asked to fund the leading abortion provider in the United States.


    “There is little doubt we will hear some Planned Parenthood apologists proclaim the obvious – that Title X funds may not be used for abortion. We will hear that this amendment would cut family planning efforts. The truth is that my amendment does not cut or reduce the budget for family planning in this appropriations bill. It simply prevents the appropriated funds from reaching an organization which profits from the abortion trade.


    “When Title X money goes to organizations that provide both abortions and family planning services, even though the money cannot directly fund abortions, it can be used to offset operational costs, freeing up money to promote and provide abortions.

    How much money do you make a year KMAN? Are you wealthy and this tax increase of 3% for the people making a net revenue of $250,001 a year are going to see?

    I have no idea what you are saying but no I don't make over $250,000.... The question is if it's so important that the people who make over $250,000 are taxed more to pay for others why can't liberals voluntarily give more to the government to pay for some of their social programs instead of forcing people to pay it?

    So why is it necessary to raise taxes on people making more than $250,000? Because people aren't giving enough? If so, if you look at the research conservatives give a much higher percentage to charity than liberals so if liberals just increase their giving to the levels conservatives are giving maybe that will fix the problem.

    imo, not a chance that charity will take care of the problems with the poor...even if dems donated what the conservatives donate....too many fall in the ranks of the needy and poor and even right now, charities are taking boocoos of gvt money in faith based initiatives from the gvt.
