    Yes, and part of Obama's big plan for solving the debt crisis is saving 1 trillion dollars in Iraq from a war that we are exiting and not going t spend anyway. Creative liberal accounting.

    Who is "rich"?
    What is "fair share"?
    do you know the definition of unearned income, tessa? i am assuming not. long term capital gains is UNEARNED income....which is taxed at 15%. hardly fair, now is it, when you consider that very many wealthy people don't earn salaries, but live on investments.

    yes, i am okay with an inheritance tax based on current value of assets. that's the way it used to be.

    Is this another "he's a liberal so he must be young and immature attack?" First of all you have no way of knowing his age, secondly it shouldn't matter as you are the one acting immature, thirdly even if he is still in school at least he learning and being educated something most conservatives seem to never do. They just parrot what the Right-wing media tells them.

    Same ol speech, lies, blames and condescending statements from nObama all he wants is for the USA to go into default so he can blame the republicans and get re- elected. Poor nObama..... he is just a victim.
    Catch me if you can.

    The top 10% of wage earners make 45.8% of all income and pay 69.9% of all FIT taxes.

    The bottom 50% make 12.8% of all income and pay 2.7% of all FIT taxes.

    Currently approximately 47% of all Americans pay nothing in FIT and actually get money back making their tax rate negative.
    If you make 10 million a year and during a divorce your wife wants half, that sucks. 5 million is a lot of freaking money, more than my buddy has to pay to his wife. However, he still has 5 million to live on. He's not in a horrible position.

    If you make 20k though, and she wants 10k... you may have to kill her.

    The fact that the top 10% pays most of the taxes and the bottom 50% don't pay any shows that the top 10% has all the money and the bottom 50% had diddly.

    Far from supporting your argument, this stat undercuts it. You've successfully proven that the rich have the money and are best capable to withstand a tax increase.

    Taxes are the lowest they've been in 50-60 years. The rich are doing fantastic right now. If tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires is supposed to help the economy and they're the lowest they've been in 50 years, why aren't we in a boom?

    This whole talk reminds me of this clip from the daily show. I think he sums it up quite nicely.
