    the rightwingers have NEVER cut spending in the last 110 years. Keep dreaming.

    when I see someone whining for the rich to pay more taxes I see someone who has conceded he doesn't have what it takes to make it to the top

    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

If we kept the same ratio under Reagan today, the top 1% would be paying 47% of all the taxes. But the 2008 taxes show 38%, down from the 40% you keep quoting BTW. So they're almost 10% below Reagan era.

    So...where the **** are our jobs? That's the payout right? But instead, we see the wealth gap widen even more as the top keep consolidating power. Economic mobility is shut down, the laws are made to profit the ones at top at the expense of those at the bottom.
    What you fail to understand is the top one or 5% is not a static group

    and I am waiting for you to tell us what it would mean if the rich were not getting any richer.

    Your ULTIMATE goal is to make them pay through the nose. And I'm telling you to forget it. Cuts must be made, and entitlement programs gutted.
