    How about if we collect what is owed?

    That we don't complain when the rich don't even pay what they OWE, nevermind what they've games the system out of, only shows why Republicans are so out of touch with Americans on raising taxes on the rich.

    If you confiscated 100% of the wealth of the evil rich... you'd have a one-time gain of maybe $1,000,000,000,000.

    Then what?

    You're an idiot.

    Go ahead and collect what's owed. Not sure why you want to give all power to a government that cant even freakin collect taxes, which is one of the few things it actually likes doing "well".

    And for the record, no, collecting whats owed wont bring down the deficit. We wont do that till we stop spending.

    Funny...you calim to be a registered republican yet AGAIN you do not understand what the GOP positioin is on taxes.

    The GOP believes all tax cuts (and all tax increases for that matter) should be on ALL Americans...not just one group....you know...All Americans are to be treated equally by the government....

    So once again, you open your dam mouth and prove you are a liar when you claim to be a registered republican.

    You misunderstand Republican tax policy. They don't want to raise taxes on the poor or the rich and want to continue with what bush did by giving a larger tax break, as a percentage of income, to the poor than to the rich ;).

    Don't fall for that liberal talking point you just repeated that repubs are just for keeping taxes low on the rich, they want lower taxes for ALL americans rich to poor.
