    The program also includes a bizarre system of market controls that dictate to the nation’s established sugar producers how much each company is allowed to sell. No producer can exceed its allotment — and no new player is allowed to enter the market.

    if someone is not willing to pay the same rates as the rich, they have absolutely no credibility to demand others pay a higher rate
    they have no credibility? how much taxes did GE pay last year? none. why should i pay 35% of my income to taxes while the filthy rich virtually pay none? where's the logic in that. of course i demand a higher rate that the rich should be taxed. it's not all about budget cuts.

    Now personally, I'm all for low tax rates, but the top end rich paying less than, the mid to low end rich, is not fair.
    it is fair if they are paying less because they only have investment income which is taxed less. they pay as much or more on investment income as anyone else and as much or more percentage rates on salary income. what makes their tax rate (total effective rate) lower than some who have high salaries and low investment income is that difference in types of income. That is fair to me because all of us have lower rates on long term investment income or dividends. raising rates for like incomes based on your percentage of different sources of income or how much or how little you make on other incomes is idiotic.

    For example say I make 20Million in Investments and have a 20 million salary. I pay 15% on the former and a 35% marginal rate (an effective rate of near 35% due to the numbers) on salary. My overall effective rate is going to be over 24%-more than just about any middle class or even upper middle class guy but less than say ball player who only has a 20 million dollar salary but I pay a higher effective COMBINED RATE THAN say a Joe Smith who makes 20Million in investments and has no salary. Why should he pay more than 15% on his 20 million? but that is what you are arguing for.

    Fairness is that each one of us who has 20 million in investments pays 15% on that and each one of us who has 20 Million in salary pays 35% (I believe progressive rates are unfair but I am setting that aside her)

    The push for a higher tax on New Yorkers making more than $1 million a year is getting fresh life with a new poll showing overwhelming support, a high-profile rally on Monday and the strengthening Occupy Wall Street protest in New York City

    The Siena College poll found 72% of New York voters support the tax to avoid further budget cuts. Just 26% oppose the proposal by powerful Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.

    No one can tell me, yet, what 'change' that will actually bring to any one city, state - or the nation as a whole.

    *more taxes more taxes more taxes* - but what is the government doing with it all? . . . Nothing worth talking about.

    filthy rich is a term that the envious use.

    You are confused as usual. The 'filthy rich" pay 35% on salary and 15% on investment income

    You pay 35% on salary and 15% on investment income. You are demanding different rates based on PROPORTIONS OF INCOME SOURCES which is MORONIC

    I agree filthy rich is a term that shouldnt be used.....but NO one pays 35% that is bogus turtle and you know that...after deductions its far less.
    Unless of course Herman Cain gets elected and the teaparty has the house and senate majorities...then the top will pay far less and corporations too and using YOUR figures that you have spewed many times...that 50% of the country pays no taxs...under cain those 50% will pay 9% plus an additonal 9% sales tax and another 25% will pay more than they are now....lol....herman cain winning the gop primary will be the greatest gift you could give to obama...he will tear herman arse to shreds on the 999....

    last post for 10 hours but the fact is-if you have a high salary you approach 35%

    the main issue is your tax rate on ONE TYPE OF INCOME really shouldn't be changed because you have more or less in other types of income. And this thread is not about Cain's proposal but the seething dishonesty of those who claim its unfair that a guy will nothing but investment income pays less than someguy with lots of salary income.

    Re: N.Y. millionaire tax gets a push from poll, Occupy Wall St.

    Aren't the top 1% paying 40% of our taxes? Aren't the top 50% paying 100% of our taxes? And you want more from them? How about a share in the burden? I know you will be against it, but until everyone pays taxes, it is completely unfair to have everyone vote on tax reform or for parties/people who will change the tax rates. If I don't pay taxes, and my options are that someone I consider in a better financial place than myself pay more taxes or I start paying taxes, of course I am going to vote for the other guy to pay taxes. We all have equal votes in this county, why don't all get involved and get a share (I am not saying equal, but a share) of the burden that those votes cost.

    LMAO....I wasn't whining since I do not and never will live in NY. I say "go for it NY, tax the crap out of the people that pay the bills for all the welfare beggars and income redistributionists. Let us know how well that works out for you."
