    Seems that liberals believe only in the freedoms that they support but not the freedom others support. This is a country of laws, you don't like the law, get it changed, if you cannot get it changed live by it.
    Yes, this nation is a nation of laws. So if it is determined that the rich pay more taxes, then they should work to change it if they don't like it, if they can't then live by it. Seems conservatives don't understand that.

    You won't see rich people in the streets protesting if such a law is passed but in the meantime you will see people pointing out the hypocrisy of liberals in promoting such a law. If it is determined that the rich should pay more in taxes, the top 1% or about 1.4 million people, then don't expect me to stop pointing out the irrelevance of taxes on that number and how little it will provide to the Federal Govt. thus a drop in the bucket in the overall scope of our economy.

    This is easy. Republicans to the president and democrats: "We agree. Write it down, put it in a bill, and we'll sign." This is not hard.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    "Your" President has promoted class warfare, has proposed nothing in cuts and has no clue how to lead. How long is it going to take for you to realize that? His resume showed that but you ignore it.

    No, the class warfare is coming from your side. You see working folk as evil and rich folk as gods to be appeased. You have a guy who spends 200K to feed his family and worries about only having 381K instead of 400K extra. But deounce a teacher who has a pension.

    No, the class warfare is from you guys.

    Class warfare is a rich issue? Name for me one rich person that cares how much you or somone else makes or pays in taxes? You seem to believe it is the rich's responsibility to send you or anyone else a check? You seem to believe it is ok for 65 million working Americans to pay zero FIT but have no problem going after the 1% that pays 38% of the taxes. You really need to look up the definition of class warfare and when you do you will see Obama's picture by that definition along with millions of people just like you.

    Try and read what I wrote again. Maybe if you read it slow you will understand better.

    Understand it completely, it isn't the rich that are concerned about teacher's pensions, it is all the taxpayers that fund those pensions who had no say in the creation of those pensions. Show me where that class warfare is that you claim is coming from the rich?

    What makes you an expert on what someone else needs or spends on themselves or their family? Why is it the Federal government's role to take care of social issues in your community?

    Are you rich? Please point to where I say the rich are concerned about the poor?

    No, you do not understand what I wrote at all it appears.

    You said the rich promote class warfare and that is a broad brush with no proof to support it.
