Those loans have been paid back, where did that money go when paid back to the Obama Administration? Was it used to retire the debt or used to blame Bush for the 2009 deficit?

    Good luck on that
    well we know one thing for sure

    the 1 percent who pay 40% of the income taxes sure don't use anywhere near as much as the 90% who pay less than 40% of the income tax

    YOur rants about the rich are pathetic

    your constant demand that the rich pay more are based on a sickening combination of class envy and the erroneous assumption that the rich somehow don't deserve their wealth

    How do you know what my burden would be for those Federal Programs at the state level. I prefer paying a local individual to administer social programs vs a bureaucrat in D.C.
    Again I'm talking the here and now not your made up imaginary fantasy land.

    If you feel that taxes for the rich were lower in the 50's and 60's, I guess that would mean you would have no problem returning to those rates, is that correct?

    Did you and whatever Jryan is read what my post was talking to. It had NOTHING TO DO WITH TAX RATES. It was discussing estate taxes. I do not know if you just troll and post B.S. posts for the fun of it, have little reading comprehension, do not understand the difference between a discussion on estate taxes and income taxes or what.

    It is responses such as the above that make "debate" sites little more than pick a side and fight sites.

    No you haven't. one person posted a two page talking paper from some union that claims this but it had no citation to evidence nor did it take into account the fact that some states derive most of their income on "regressive" or neutral taxes while some have heavily progressive income and death taxes

    Total tax burden has nothing to do with the thread topic and funding the Federal Govt. That argument is typical of liberals who don't have a clue where their tax dollars go. Apparently you are in that group.
