    You can claim you are pope too and that would be just as stupid

    so tell us why do the dems refuse to cut stuff unless they can wage class warfare on the smartest and the most industrious?

    so if you are so hell bent on what you call fairness how about you pay the same rates I do?
    Some of the rich who are not quite rich enough pay a lot in taxes. Once you get rich enough, you're tax rate goes down because the laws are set for the very rich to use many forms of tax loophole to not pay tax on it. As such, income is income. It should all be treated the same.

    Agreed. At this point, I'm ready to see the debt ceiling missed. As bad as that would be, it needs to be done if Republicans won't budge. Le them answer to the American people. Let them explain that they let the economy tank even further because they protected some millionaires' tax breaks.

    Yeah, we should switch to the Commie China model. I mean, they ain't got unions and they're doing so great. Right? Oh...

    That's what I find so outrageous. It's not like they're fighting for US. They aren't trying to make our lot better, in fact they're holding up true recovery to protect their friends in high places. I mean, who's going to give them a cushy VP spot in a company once they're done in Congress if they raise their taxes?

    But in the end, this is what's going on. Saving an increase tax rate on the super rich, holding the rest of us hostage while doing so. Way to serve the People.
