    So you didn't sacrifice anything. Got it. Thanks for the clarification.

    The point is none of those fund the expenses of the U.S. Govt and that is the point so stop bringing them up.

    What were the positive results from the war in Iraq? I see vast amounts of money down the drain, a huge death toll, thousands of servicemen with life altering injuries...

    I certainly understand why you would prefer only to talk about taxes that rich people pay more of. That would fit better with your distorted view of the world. But that isn't reality, so no, I refuse to selectively edit out information until it matches your assumptions....

    You want to discuss the war, start a new thread and I will join you. Stop trying to derail this one. The cost of the wars were a drop in the bucket of our 14.6 trillion debt but it is red meat to liberals who want to divert from what ever issue they cannot defend.

    lots of lawyers are scummy and make claims that are in error

    and you are violating the rules

    What you need to do is educate yourself on the expenses of the govt. and what taxes go where. Until you do that you never will understand the issue. FICA doesn't fund the Federal Govt. as those are basically insurance programs that provide actual benefits to individuals. Property taxes fund police and fire along with schools in addition to sales taxes and any other local taxes. You don't understand state, local, and Federal Taxes

    Im not complaining about them, only YOU. YOU didn't sacrifice anything. I love how you ask how the Iraq war hurt families and you didnt sacrifice anything. Go figure having others fight.

    BTW, I was in the war in the beginning so kiss off I sacrificed for a mission I didn't believe in. Yet I did my duty as such because that is who I was. You know nothing of me.
