Klein: The Tax Man Should Cometh - Newsweek.com
awesome article. makes fools look crazy as ever
Good points. The same kind of points that Warren Buffet makes when he points out that he pays 17% of his income in taxes, while his receptionist pays over 30% of her income in taxes.
Time for the very wealthy to pay their fair share.
Reagan and the two Bushes created 92% of the National Debt by lowering taxes for the rich.
We need to raise them again.
Link please. I'm guessing two wars had a bigger effect on the National Debt than 8%.
What's "fair" to you?
I love how everything in life has to be "fair."
But beyond that little previous remark, I was serious when I asked the question.
I'm always happy to turn people on to reaganbushdebt.org.....
Ah, so the debt was a little under a trillion when Reagan came into office. Being close to 10 trillion when Bush II left office. Ergo 92%. So 0bama's at 12 trillion now with cap rasied to 14. That is 20% in a year. I'm sure you're really upset about 0bama.
When do the lazy pay their fair share?
Never or when they get around to it, which is basically the same thing.
Well, that's not really working out for me, so I think I'll look for ways to avoid paying more in taxes...
