    All we hear from the left is have the rich pay more. Give more . GIMME Why cant the poor pay something. Even if its 120 dollars a year .. YOu cant say a person cant afford 10 dollars a month .. I am sure they are wasting more then that on other things like fast food, cigarettes, booze. How many times I have been behind someone paying with food stamps and have beer and cigs they are about to buy as well. But, if that wasnt bad enough they dont pay they get EIC as well so the rich people are paying them for nothing.

    Everyone should pay an equal % share on all income for income tax... sort of goes along with that whole equality in treatment by government under law thing

    Forget all these notions of who should have to pay such and such taxes. It's irrelevant. Only thing that matters is that we need tax code that is EFFECTIVE.

    The government should be requiring everybody to pay the same tax rate on income. Poor, middle class, rich, parents, single people, home owners, renters, and people who give to charity.

    The government should not be in the business of subsidizing the act of rasing kids, paying off a home, or starting a business.
