    I pay income tax and think that the very rich are not paying their fair share. There is no reason why a family earning 250k a year should be in the same tax bracket as someone earning 250 million a year.

    Problem is that is why the rich are sitting on their money. Why create more jobs if you need the money for more taxes.

    I never said such a thing, and you know it. Please don't lie about my comments.

    sorry buddy, but you can't just go around saying this or that is a crime. society makes those choices, not you.
    So because they do it legally it is not theft? HAHAHA thats funny

    how many jobs were created during Clinton's 8 years?

    how much did taxes go up for the wealthy during those 8 years?

    sorry my friend, but your idea that raising taxes kills job growth, simply doesn't stand up to reality.

    ah that's a start. but dem propaganda and tax schemes place me and most of the others in the top one percent in the same tax class as Gates. But even if Buffett only pays 18% on the billion or whatever he makes in a year he has paid far far more tax dollars than you have. To say he hasn't paid his fair share fails on most grounds of objective fairness.

    Problem is it is hurting us. Freight is slowing I have been seeing this for several months now. That means the economy is getting worse not better

    theft is illegal. if someone takes something from you that you owe, and society recognizes that this was the right thing to do, then its not theft.

    if you don't pay your parking tickets, the County Sheriff will sieze your car. is this theft?

    certainly not.

    if you don't pay your mortgage, the bank will foreclose, and the County Sheriff will sieze your home. is this theft?

    certainly not.

    So then what percentage is to much? Increasing tax is not the problem spending is the problem
