    Are you kidding me? The poor and middle class account for creating somewhere around 90% of the GDP, but the top 1% gets 1/3 of the GDP...

    Nor is it the taxpayer! You don't like the way a business works or pays its workers, don't buy from them. Try that with the Federal Govt? Where is your outrage over govt. greed?

    If hating someone just means not wanting to shovel all of the nation's money into their pockets then do you hate everybody except the rich?

    You don't know what you are talking about. How much 1/3rd of the GDP?

    Life is about making choices. You don't like a company, don't buy from them. You have yet to tell me how someone got rich while making someone else poor or middle class? Where is your initiative to become one of those evil rich people so you can give all your money away like you want others to do. Do you think that someone else should give their money to you?

    A 3% rise for the wealthiest people while cutting benefits for the most vulnerable people is not "giving all your money away".

    I believe in free choice and not forced redistribution of wealth. Do you believe that someone else should give their money to you? Guess it is ok if they are forced to give it to the govt. and have the govt. give it to you, right?

    Cite your sources and remember we have 140 million working Americans today? Why is the govt. encouraging someone with their own investment in their business to do that by increasing regulations and taxes?

    Say one happens to dis like con agra but happens to like Dr. Pepper. Guess what when one buys a Dr Pepper they are also buying a ConAgra product. And that holds true for for quite a few other food products as well.

    You can't tackle the deficit and the debt with cuts alone. It's just not possible.

    Now you may feel like towing the idealogical line gets you somewhere, it doesn't, a combination of cuts and raised taxes is the only solution to truly get everything under control. You can't grow your way out of this either.
