    why not demand severe and deep cuts FIRST. I don't trust the government-especially ones run by the pimps who want to spend more and more and more-to cut anything and a tax hike will only be used to justify MORE spending

    and why not call for EVERYONE to be taxed more?

    Why should he pay a wee bit more? Who are you to demand that somebody who earns money (and likely paid 10x more in taxes than you did) give up their money so you can sit around and continue to not contribute to our society?

    sorry, many of us reject that marxist nonsense of from each according to their ability

    why should I pay more just because I can? what do I get extra in return

    I have no duty to pay more when others don't even pay their share

    Technically you’re right, we are not in a negative growth period which is a recession. We are however in a period of stagnation and many say we are about to go into a double dip recession, an even worse time to raise taxes.

    I don't mean to troll, I'm seriously asking this question.

    Why is it called class warfare when a Liberal says to raise taxes on the rich, but not when you say to raise them on the poor?

    How does the Kool-Aid taste?

    Both Democrats and Republicans are to blame. I never saw a Republican who cried wolf when Bush pushed policies that weren't paid for (energy bill, prescription drug bill, Iraq invasion). A tax hike right now is only justified to reduce the deficit even further than what spending cuts can do.

    and why not call for EVERYONE to be taxed more?
    The one thing I agree with you, but more so in taking away tax breaks rather than hiking tax rates.
    The GOP National Committee should change their emblem from an elephant to a condom. A condom stands up to inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects pricks, and gives one a sense of security and safety while screwing others.

    Like many you are ignorant of the fact that the richest taxpayers PAY THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE RATES ON LIKE INCOME
    You're playing word games. The richest make most of their income with capital gains.

    Honestly, I can't believe some people are actually defending millionaires against just a little tax increase.

    They can afford it. They won't go hungry. They won't have to move in with mom.

    There is no logical, rational, nor common-sense reason to oppose a small tax-increase on the wealthy.
