The truth about tax fairness is there will always be some people who think other people don't pay a fair share of taxes. And it's usually people who pay nothing in taxes who think other's aren't paying enough.

It's true that tax cuts help all people. When taxes were lowered, revenues increased. Why can't Obama see this? Does he really want to see people elevated? Or is it more beneficial to his plan to fundamentally change America to have the system overloaded with government dependents? JFK and other presidents knew how it worked. I think the liberals of today understand it, as well, but they have a different goal.

Maobama said himself the his tax increase on the rich was not about raising revenue but about his iideology of fairness. He's a freaking idiot, but that's what he wants.

This same old song and dance that only discusses income taxes and ignores all other taxes? Ugh!

If cutting taxes increases revenues so much, why don't we just cut the tax rate to zero? When people use Kennedy's tax cuts and Reagan's tax cuts as evidence that cutting taxes works, they never tell us that the top tax rates at those times were 90% and 70% respectively. Today the top tax rate is 35%. Tax rates are lower now than they were under Reagan.

Wrong, I guess you did't pay attention to the video, you might want to watch it again. That way you can get your facts streight and not look so foolish.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. The people that "pay nothing in taxes" are the elderly and disabled.

Why do you have a problem with the elderly and disabled?
