    What's the difference? Get over your envy and deal with the real issue, which is that we need to lower deficits and part of that is raising revenue. Millionaires can afford to pay more without affecting their lifestyles, unlike the middle class and poor. They are also among the very few who have actually prosphered throughout the Great Recession, AND they are paying at a FAR lower rate than they have since the 1940s. It's a no brainer.

    If you want to know more about Warren Buffet's comparison, why not go back to his letter in the NY times?

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/15/op...me&ref=general

    While he doesn't explicitly state how much his secretary or the other 19 people in his office that he mentions make, he does tell you which taxes he's comparing.

Itís a different story for the middle class: typically, they fall into the 15 percent and 25 percent income tax brackets, and then are hit with heavy payroll taxes to boot.
    Federal income tax + payroll taxes. Is he wrong? Is he lying? Was he trying to deceive you in his clearly stated letter?

    Actually, with WND, you turned off the far left liberals, the moderate liberals, the Reagan democrats, the independents, the moderates, and the intelligent conservatives. many of us refuse to even click on WND links since we don't want them to get more page views so they can claim their truther **** is more viable.

    sorry the millionaires pay too much and merely being able to pay more no longer has any validity. The rich are paying MORE Of the income tax share than they have in decades.

    Its slackers who demand more government who need to pay more

    from each according to their ability doesn't cut it

    and certainly what is pathetic is those who don't pay enough demanding others pay more

    its time to massively cut government even though that the dems will take a bath in winning elections

    Re: White House Tax Plan Would Ask More of Millionaires

    was FICA supposed to be a progressive tax or rather a graduated payment?

    Look I realize this board mostly has those who don't pay their share of the tax burden and they want those who pay more of the tax burden than their share to pay even more

    its the mentality that fuels a demand for progressive income taxes. I understand what motivates such people

    but don't pretend its right just because there are more net tax consumers than net tax payers
