    raising FIT on the middle-class and lower income households would seriously affect their spending levels.

    the rich? not so much..if any at all.

    Yes, sure do and I also know that politicians created that debt and thus have no intention of paying it off so giving them more money is like give heroin to an addict. Why do you believe more revenue will be used to pay down the debt and where is your proof that higher taxes only on the rich will generate more income?

    What is the fair share Obama is talking about and how can someone else's fair share be zero?

    If the private sector is not earning money for the government to tax, then where does the money come from?

    Actually you have a legal obligation to pay what the law says you should pay. And those who do not pay - the demonized 47% - what you call their FAIR SHARE do so because of Republican George Bush and Republicans in Congress who supplied over 90% of the YES votes on the 2001 & 2003 tax cut laws, also do what the law says.

    you miss the obvious point. until the masses suffer tax increases they have no incentive to ever demand less spending

    So you have now paid 1.4 trillion of the 14.6 trillion dollar debt that the wars did not cause

    You could afford more taxes too. You don't need a computer. you should sell it and pay the receipts to the government
    Yeah but he earned a computer. What you forget is that you are not entitled to a computer. If you are having trouble paying the bills then maybe you "don't need" a computer and you can sell it to take care of your own business.
