    They can afford it. They won't go hungry. They won't have to move in with mom.

    There is no logical, rational, nor common-sense reason to oppose a small tax-increase on the wealthy.
    That is why most of the country agrees with Obama's plan to raise taxes on the wealthy to help reduce the deficit.

    I suspect the right attempts to hide this sort of anti-American tendency of the authoritarian to stifle dissent - in this case using the power of employment to force employees to cower in silent intimidation. However, it is a good thing this has come out and is now in the public for all to see.

    One quick question. If we have been borrowing money at a tremendous rate, and we continue borrowing. If we raise taxes on the wealthy, we will still be borrowing just not as much. Because the rich are "subsidizing" in a way. correct?

    No the reason is that it does impact them. My guess is you will not pay any more taxes ( if you pay any now) under this proposal.

    Poliical correctness is far more a trait of the left.

    and some people can even afford to pay just a little more in taxes without it affecting their spending even one single bit.

    However, people that defend the tax breaks for the wealthiest when the middle class is hurting are the best PR tool the Democrats have in convincing the moderates and independents not to vote GOP! There is a silver lining to every cloud that calls the middle class parasites!

    The tax break is that capital gains are taxed lower. I've yet to see this addressed.

    The rich demand more wasteful spending, like the war in Iraq, and a military that is 3 times larger than it needs to be. If they do not suffer tax increases they have no incentive to ever demand less wasteful spending.

    I have, which is why i find your statement odd.

    and again I find it hilarious that a supposed libertarian supports government confiscation of wealth
    Do you have a reading comprehension problem? As it stands, the federal government has issued more than $14 trillion in stock debt of which more than 70% is held by American interests. It really does not matter how you feel about taxation or future tax increases. Our government owes the American people THEIR WEALTH. Your mindless set of policy solutions in no way position our government to make good on its dues.

    Unless of course you support confiscation of wealth via default.
    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.
