    Why not? They're the ones who pay taxes. And now that Government has kidnapped 1/6 of the economy through ObamaCare, there are less and less taxpayers out there.

    Besides, who are you to say they should pay more taxes? You ever expect Government to spend less?

    Because they're the ones who pay the taxes, and the ones who benefit the most from taxes being spent. And all of a sudden they're paying less in taxes, or nothing in taxes, and yet gaining massive benefits from the govt.

    better to extend them to poor people who don't pay taxes and don't invent new products to move the economy forward. Its called trickle up only there is nothing to trickle up except perhaps a hand looking for more crippling welfare.

    Okay, no tax cuts for anyone, which means a flat tax for everyone.

    You in comrade?

    BS of course the poor are 100 dependent on and crippled by govt. The rich pay the taxes used for crippling welfare so its bit impossible to say they benefit most from supporting other people with welfare. Does the liberal care to rethink?

    actually they pay most of the taxes. The top 1% for example pay 44% of all income taxes. Sorry to rock your insane liberal no nothing at all world.
