    the rich enjoy the freedoms that are fought for and protected by our million-man military.




    the rich don't benefit from the govt? that is the most dishonest thing I've seen here in a while.

    nice propaganda. the war on poverty has been a failure and has probably created more poor people, It certainly has cost thousands of lives too in terms of criminals spawned by single parent homes and illegitimacy. it enriched bureaucrats, greatly expanded the government and cost us trillions

    Did you have any family member serve in Iraq? As for the war on poverty, you claim it was an investment in our country? When is that investment going to pay off?

    Are you ever going to quit throwing money at the problems facing individuals and accepting the waste, fraud, and abuse that goes with Federal Spending on any issue? Why is spending in the name of compassion that never generates compassionate results always something that liberals like you support? No wonder you believe that the govt. needs more money all because of liberal feelings.

    their great wealth is protected by the govt.

    their vast properties are protected by the govt.

    I find it disgusting that the FDIC guaruntees $250,000 in bank accounts..for EACH bank account one has..

    absolutely disgusting. this is NOT something that I benefit from.

    The difference is the trajectory of the money; social welfare benefits increase the revenues for retailers ala walmart or grocers such as Kroger.

    Yes, the first step of expenditure (redistribution) is inefficient in a relative sense, but once it flows into American businesses (steps 2 - ∞); a great deal of secondary economic activity is then generated.

    When we spend it on Iraq building bridges we bombed, that counts as a leakage and has a minimal impact on the economy (see HAL).
    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.

    Um, how much do they earn and how much of it do the hide? Would you like America to become a plutocracy?

    Amazing how so many people don't understand that individuals pay for SS and Medicare through their payroll taxes, pay for their roads when they buy gasoline. Defense and security doesn't cost 3.7 trillion dollars so amazing how peple try to justify higher taxes when they don't have a clue as to what their taxes fund now
