    Lets take 100% of the income earned from wealthy Americans earning over $250k. A liberals dream right?

    What happens then? Who's money could we take after the government is broke again after a few months?

    When will the liberals acknowledge the fact that spending cuts need to be made?

    Bullshit.

    In the USSR they confiscated 100% of the rich's wealth. Today it is a prosperous and thriving government.

    Ask comrade starkiev.

    By the same token, let's cut all taxes to zero and watch revenues come rolling in.

    i'm sorry, nutter, where on earth is anyone saying tax people at 100%? surely you know the difference between the tax rates before the bush tax cuts and after.

    so given that you probably know those things, i think it's safe to say we can chalk you up to being a pathological liar.

    thanks for playing.

    Neither raising taxes or lowering them will solve anything.

    The government has to cut it's obscene spending. Period.

    Let's just flip the fuck out over what is essentially a minor tax hike that is opposed entirely on ideological grounds rather than any real danger to anyone's prosperity. Other than just hating taxes and so very much wanting to believe in trickle down there is no actual reason to make this an issue worthy of the death of the GOP, and it will be if they continue to cling to the Norquist pledge, that ship is sinking and there is no reason to lash themselves to the mast.

    And if we start cutting spending. Let's take all subsidies away from every entity!
    Right! And re-do the tax code.
    Remember , they built it themselves.

    Democrats keep saying "the rich need to pay their fair share," while refusing to acknowledge the need to cut spending.

    You say that the problem will be solved if the rich chipped in a little more. What we're trying to say is that no matter how high taxes are, they will do absolutely nothing to support the preposterous spending of the government.

    We're not accusing you of wanting to raise taxes to 100% (although some of you come close to that), what we're saying is that raising taxes at all is pointless.
