    Obviously, you get the money from those who can afford it the most, not from those whocan afford it the least.

    Obviously you are an expert on what people can afford or not afford. You telling me that income earners cannot pay something to the Federal Govt. for the services they use?

    Conservative that depends...if you have a family of 4 living off of two minimum wage jobs...14.00 an hour out of that comes other taxs....Social Security, unemployment and state tax, they still have to pay any all fees for license, etc...they still pay Sales taxs.....if you took any more off of them in Fed tax...we would just have to give it right back in another way.....theres an old saying that still applies...you cant get blood from a stone..
    I do agree that everyone that can afford to pay should....but there really is those that have squat and cant...and they arent lazy scum either..

    How many family of four are living off two minimum wage jobs? How do you determine who should pay and how much? Right now 47% of the current 139million labor force pay NOTHING which is over 65 MILLION Americans. think about what $100 a year would generate in revenue? Why is it that liberals always claim they know what someone else's expenses are and thus what they can afford. Sometimes the things people want get in the way of the things they need. Think about it

    And half of that number is represented by people who are jobless for various reasons (disability, bad economy, etc) , and lets roughly another 10% of people who don't even earn enough money to support themselves by working. Something to think about "conservatives"

    That simply isn't true, those are income earning Americans that are part of the current 139 million EMPLOYED. Again, you have no clue as to what someone else can afford as you think with your heart and not your brain.

    You honestly think I let emotions dictate my reason? You honestly have no clue. I want a national sales tax with the exceptions on food, rent, and investments (land, housing, etc) and a lower tax on necessary utility services (electricity, water [not bottled], heating).

    Even if your numbers only includes the employed then at least half of it is still made up of people who make poverty (or below) wages. Those people shouldn't pay taxes as they use nearly all their income on life necessities. The remaining half is probably because of **** that shouldn't exist such as earned income credits for having children, mortgage deductions, school loan deductions, charity deduction, etc

    I don't know about half, but a lot of them are unemployed. A lot of others are full-time students or retired people living on fixed incomes.

    That isn't what you stated but instead

    And half of that number is represented by people who are jobless for various reasons
    Half of what? The labor force in this country is 153 million with the rest retired, elderly, and children. Suggest you define life's necessities, computers, cell phones, flat screen TV's, IPods? How do you know what expenses people have but you have no problem buying the liberal rhetoric. Don't you think you should find out before making statements like the one above? How much revenue could be going to the govt. if those who earned income paid nothing more than $100 a year or $2 per week? Think instead of feeling.
