    the rich will pay more in taxes. the poor and middle class will lose services.

    seems fair to me.

    You wanted the wars paid for, the wars cost 1.4 trillion dollars over the past 10 years and the total debt is 14.5 trillion. Paying for the war debt still leaves a 13.1 trillion dollar debt that wasn't caused by the wars. Get it yet? Guess spending in the name of compassion is all that matters to a liberal thus all this social spending that has yet to solve a social problem.

    they can afford it and it will barely affect their spending, if at all.

    its common sense. its logical. its not rocket science.
    why should one small group be forced to pay more when the debt was mostly incurred due to the actions of the many

    and since you are not a millionaire you don't have the knowledge to make such idiotic claims. many people, rich, middle or poor, expand their spending to similar levels. You. like many tax hikers, think the average millionaire has no more expenses than you do and can afford another 40,000 or a million in taxes

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    so you agree that government benefits everyone but the rich

    so why should the rich pay even more for something they don't benefit from

    of course it seems fair to you. fair to me is you paying EXACTLY the same amount of taxes I do since you get the same benefits. and if you cannot afford it, you should get far less benefits.

    as did those in the military I suppose. but I have neither. all the wars did was drive up the cost of ammunition. I am a competitive shooter and the cost of 9mm and 5.56mm ammo went up several dollars a 50 due to the war. Thus the war cost me money

    Where is your outrage against such irresponsible spending?

    FWIW, the wars drove up our future tax liabilities because they were financed via deficit spending.

    Um, the so-called war on poverty is an investment in our country. The war in Iraq will eventually cast the American taxpayers $3 Trillion. These costs are not traceable by looking at the Federal budget. The Iraq war was complete loss of money and lives. There is very little if anything good that came out of it.

    Turtle do you have an actual proof to back this up, like sources or historical sources or what not? Or is it just your frail opinion?

    so was the idiotic
    Great society and other dem welfare schemes

    I opposed all the government expansion that the dems started with the New Deal

    that crap costs far more than the wars. I was never a supporter of the Iraq war or occupation. we should have killed Hussein to make an example and then got out
