    I think you need to go back to pages 16-21 of this thread and see what Turtledude feels about my comments.

    The WSJ numbers show that everyone who claims that the rich don't pay as much in taxes are wrong. That is a pretty major hit to the argument that we should tax the rich.

    I prioritize the spending that is most wasteful first. Solyndra is still in the investigation stage. No wrongdoing has been proven yet.

    Redress is indeed my friend though we often disagree. But Redress has opposed tax hikes in the current environment.

    It's often times happened from the left. Or at least they've called for it.

    How about guilty of stupidity. We loaned a half billion to a company who built a product that cost $5 and sold for $3.25. The we will find out if they the way loan was structured with the government taking the loss before investors is in fact in contradiction to the law.

    Lower-income households will pay less. For example, households making between $40,000 and $50,000 will pay an average of 12.5 percent of their income in federal taxes. Households making between $20,000 and $30,000 will pay 5.7 percent.
    The latest IRS figures are a few years older — and limited to federal income taxes — but show much the same thing. In 2009, taxpayers who made $1 million or more paid on average 24.4 percent of their income in federal income taxes, according to the IRS.
    Those making $100,000 to $125,000 paid on average 9.9 percent in federal income taxes. Those making $50,000 to $60,000 paid an average of 6.3 percent
