    telling most americans that a minority will pay all the tax hikes will get most americans to support it

    claiming that makes it right is moronic

    Right now, Andrew Cuomo is one of the very few, and I MEAN very few Democrats I respect because he "gets it" The state is broke and we need to massively cut back.

    but since you are so keen for tax hikes why don't you start with people who clearly are not paying near their fair share

    and fair share is not based on your "ability" to pay but what you get in value

    you seem to think that those who make more than you do have done so unfairly

    that is the mindset behind all these idiotic claims that the rich need to pay even more

    you don't get any less benefits than the rich do

    why should you pay less?
    What do you mean who cares? It goes to show the ratio. Let's say the top 1% pay 40% of taxes, but control over 80% of the overall US wealth. That's a ****ing deal man. I would take that in a heart beat. But if it's more like the top 1% pay 40% of taxes but control 20% of the overall US wealth, then they're getting boned.

    See, the "who cares" piece is why your arguments are partisan garbage. "Don't ask how much they have, how many laws allowed the even .1% consolidate more power and wealth; just go with it and don't ask questions.". It's idiotic. Of course how much they control is proportional to how much they pay, it's a progressive tax scale. You want to hide how much they make. The fact of the matter is that the very top have reaped benefit of many laws and subsidies and tax payer give away. They can pay for that privilege. Else, all income is treated like income and no one gets special rules and tax loopholes/

    It is supposed to be income based, but when the top .1% can redefine their income as different things to get lower tax rates, that's a different ballgame. So let's say the tax is based on income. Income is income, it all gets taxed at the same rate.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Of course!! Capitalistic enterprises require regular socialistic bailouts because capitalism doesn't work without socialism.

    That's why all of the developed nations have rejected the low tax, non-regulated economic system promoted by the rightwing. It's why the rightwingers cant point to one developed economy that is based on rightwing economic policies.
