Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
you already have 47% of the working population, that pay nothing in federal income tax, Nothing.. nadda ... you have a government that is already running a 1.5 trillion dollar deficit,
So please, explain, how your trickle up tax policy is going to work. Your are only talking about 2% of the working population. That's 3 million people... making 250,000 dollars or more even if you were to tax them an average of 100,000 "MORE" that only comes up to 300 billion dollars, still a shortfall of 1.2 trillion dollars a year, and that's with everyone else paying at least the same in taxes as they do now ... I fail to see any benefit for the middle class, other then the US accumulating over 1 trillion dollars a year more in debt.
