    And when they use them incorrectly, as in this case with the WSJ, I hope you point it out.

    Who is "consuming" the taxes? Not the rich. Maybe you need to take a second look at this.

    How are you going to come in here and say the WSJ isn't using the statistics correctly when you don't have any at all? It is amazing that you would rather be wrong and f*** this country than to just be a big boy and admit you were wrong and learn something in the process.

    It is a simple fact whether you look at percentages or actual dollar amounts that the rich paid more in taxes than anyone else. There is NOTHING out there that proves otherwise and anyone asking to tax the rich is either ignorant or suffering from some childish jealousy that some people just have more than you do. Grow up.

    I agree we should cut our wasteful spending, and most of the waste has been in fighting optional wars, and a military that spends almost as much as the rest of the world combined. You can't have your cake and eat it too.

    No they will find some way to try and claim that the IRS is wrong and that their idiot friend that heard somebody say something about a CNN story that somebody saw about how rich people are evil and don't pay any taxes is right.

    That's the only spending that I've seen you suggest. Have you said anything abut half-billion that got flushed down the toilet by Solyndra? What about the pork packs that have been pissed away? Notta peep, eh?

    You have a distorted view of the economy. Explain to me how the rich took anything from the poor and why there is no responsibility for the poor for not raising themselves up in class. Do you think that Bill Gates started out rich? Why do you ignore the poor people that did become rich? You always want to blame someone else for the failure of others. That is liberalism.

    Show me some statistics that indicate that the war(s) cost more than the constant upkeep of entitlement programs.

    As this report shows, means-tested welfare or aid to poor and low-income persons is now the third most expen*sive government function. Its cost ranks below support for the elderly through Social Security and Medicare and below government expenditures on education, but above spending on national defense. Prior to the current reces*sion, one dollar in seven in total federal, state, and local government spending went to means-tested welfare.

    Seems to me like the people who are not paying taxes are also the ones most responsible for consuming them.

    I don't think you are aware of my position on taxes. That does not change the fact that the WSJ numbers do not prove the case against this plan.

    To quote my friend Turtledude(who is far more conservative on taxes than you): the rich are not monolithic. What they as a group pay is irrelevant to what each pays as an individual.
