this sort of idiocy only poisons our country. Most millionaires did nothing wrong (and those you damn did nothing wrong either-you just hate investments) and your pathetic attacks on all the rich is disgusting
Fortunately, the majority rules in this country, it is the final equalizer when things get too far out of control. That was the case following the Great Depression and it appears to be what is happening now following the Great Recession. The majority are fulfilling their civic duty to stand up against failed policy like the 30 years of trickle down economics that has lowered the standard of living for the middle class, pushing many into poverty.

To claim that people wanting to keep more of what they earn and have what they pay in taxes go towards representing them is greedy is again dishonest.
To claim the majority of the rich get more in return than they pay in is again dishonest.
All this just says you're a lier.

To claim that people who cite that the 50 percent(includes the retired, children, teenagers, those making under 12 thousand a year, and the unemployed) who don't currently pay taxes should "put some in skin in the game" are the ones being taken advantage of is dishonest.
To claim that the tax contribution made by bleeding the poor dry is more fruitful than a slight increase in the top two percent's taxes is dishonest.
All this says you can't spell liar.
To claim I owe them anything because of their situations is dishonest.To claim that people who cite that the 50 percent(includes the retired, children, teenagers, those making under 12 thousand a year, and the unemployed) who don't currently pay taxes should "put some in skin in the game" are the ones being taken advantage of is dishonest.
To claim anyone wants to bleed anybody dry that is for low taxation is dishonest.To claim that the tax contribution made by bleeding the poor dry is more fruitful than a slight increase in the top two percent's taxes is dishonest.
To claim that the rich don't already pay more than their fair share is dishonest.
lol..All this says you can't spell liar.
So you think the bottom 50% have money?1) to claim they have none is a specious lie
2) you seem not to understand that taxes have at least two purposes
a) the first is to raise revenue-taxing the poor might not raise much (the Tax cuts however "cost" more for the middle and lower class than the top one percent)
This is wrong, the rich use more of the services they pay for than anyone else. Who do you think drives the roads to work? Their employees. Who do you think breathes that clean air that they cling to so tightly? Their employees. Who do you think uses food stamps to survive? Their employees. So would it be enslaving the bottom 50% to make them pay for these things or is it fair for the top 1% to pay for their employees to get to work? After all, isn't a salary just a living expense account?b) the second is to provide feedback and incentives or dis-incentives. Right now too many people do not receive the proper feedback as to the cost of government. Thus, they demand more and more government because they don't receive any real increases in taxes needed to pay for it
Wow, that came out a lot better than I thought it would. Have a nice day, off to classes .
Stop using the "founders vision". Take a critical thinking class. What they said now obviously does not apply today. Think about that.Is that what you learned growing up that your income should be taken from you so that it can be spent elsewhere vs you spending more of your own money in your own community? Where was that ever in the Founders vision of this country? For some reason you and other liberals make claims that you know nothing about. You have no idea how much I give to charity, how much I give to the church, how much I pay in local and state taxes yet you have no problem claiming that I should pay more. I see no reason other than govt. greed for me to pay higher taxes to the govt. that created a 14.6 trillion dollar debt. Explain it to me.
Also, it does not help your case gloating that you make more than everyone else on this forum. If you look at my job description it says "Student", so obviously I make less than everyone on this forum.
Drastic spending cuts need to take place, not taxing the rich more so that more of their money can be sucked into a government that wastes billions of dollars and passes spending bills that do no good. The answer is not to tax and spend, the answer is to spend less and reform the tax code to prevent tax loopholes from being abused.
