    Why is he doing it? Maybe it's that deficit you keep mentioning?
    Or maybe it is just cheap political posturing that has polled well.

    Why shouldn't the rich pay the FIT at the same rate as the middle class does?

    because the whiny wealthy deserve to be treated special.

    i mean honestly, they didn't get rich so that they would be treated like everyone else, right?

    '

    Where is your assurance that any additional income, if any, will be applied to the deficits? Where are those savings that Obama claims he will create. Typical Obama lies and you buy it.

    He didn't only try to raise the top rate. He tried to raise it on everyone making $200k or more. This hardly billionare hedge fund managers that jet set around the globe in private jets. This is considered upper middle class in some cities in this country.

A bankrupt American government is, like, really bad. Duh.
    I think it's because they would like to turn our county into a plutocracy.

    Why are rates so important to you and not the amount paid? Do you think it is right to complain about what the rich pay and not about so many not paying any FIT?

    I don't think it's that far, I just think that most of them are heavily misguided and uneducated.
    The GOP National Committee should change their emblem from an elephant to a condom. A condom stands up to inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects pricks, and gives one a sense of security and safety while screwing others.

    the more money you make, the higher a percentage of your income you should pay in taxes. why?

    because the more money you make, the more you can afford to pay in taxes.

    its simple logic. its common sense.
