    I don't know, why does anyone think income taxes "fund the entire govt?"

    When you raise the taxes on a particular group you do so with individuals that worked hard, took risk, and showed initiative to make something of themselves. Why would you penalize good hard working people just because they are wealthy? Prosecutre those that break the law but the liberal solution has always been use a broad brush and penalize everyone. That is dangerous political ideology that only leaves govt. bureaucrats standing.

    Let's put a name to those evil rich people, so why would you penalize me as you have no idea how much I give to charity and what help I provide those in my community in need including my church?

    Because FIT and corporate income taxes make up the lion share of funding the govt. Maybe you ought to learn what particular taxes fund before making that statement? Tell me what funds the Federal Govt and be specific?

    Why would you support penalizing someone who worked hard rising out of the middle class into the upper class? You have no idea what I give to charity, what I give to my church and how active I am in the community yet that doesn't stop you from stereotyping and showing how jealous and envious you are of others. Reagan never raised the tax rates on the rich as Obama has proposed.

    How can you continue to support Obama?

    You know nothing of history, taxes were higher for the rich under Reagan than anything Obama is proposing. But glad to know you would be OK with going back to that level of taxation!

    I lived history so don't stereotype based upon what you don't know. Why won't you answer the question as to why you have so much passion for people keeping less of what they earned? Why do you want me to keep less of what I have earned and have the govt can spend my money? They have created a 14.6 trillion dollar debt since 1980 and please don't insult anyone's intelligence by claiming that debt was due to unfunded wars.

    when some realize they don't have what it takes to be successful they want the government to punish those who are

    I think you are right and see that evidence right here in this forum. I am waiting for one of these malcontents to explain to me why they want to penalize me for what I have accomplished and how the govt. can spend the money more effeciently than I can. Bet I don't get an answer.

    1) they will claim merely existing within a certain distance of you means they are partially responsible for your success

    2) they will claim that if you are successful you must have cheated them

    3) they will claim that the government gives you much more and thus you have to pay more

    4) will mouth the nonsense that from each according to their ability is what matters
