    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.
    250,000 is peanuts to the uber rich, that helps mainly the middle and upper middle class

    the rich pay 40% of the IT taxes. the bottom 50% pay less than 3%

    tell me to you believe that the richest 1% use 13 Times as much of the government services than the bottom 50%

    how are you going to define that and why does from each according to their comfortable ability to pay matter?

    why are you against a flat rate

    lets see an intellectually based argument

    Ignorance and dishonesty permeates most of the tax hike posts

    my entire argument in this and similar threads have been based on common sense, logic, and rational thinking.

    the more money you earn, the more money you have, the more money you can afford to pay in taxes.

    this ain't rocket science Turtledude.

    why do they pay more than they should?

    compared to the last 80 years, they pay A LOT less than they used to.

    I freakin HATE taxes but at this moment in time its a reality.
    Turtle in MY world there would be NO welfare. There would be NO UNIONS. But I live in reality.
    Where was the determination made that they are not already giving to this country "what they should"?
