    Its like saying that the honors students ought to be forced to tutor the slackers because those who EARNED A averages benefit more from school than the class clowns, and the morons who don't do their homework or attend class regularly
    sorry are you a millionaire? Also it is nothing like asking honour students to tutor slackers because majority of the working class are not slackers thank you very much!

    They're no longer talking about taxing income. They are talking about confiscating standing wealth.

    There are no golden eggs, which is why the economy is still slumping and there are no jobs. Rich people aren't contributing ****. They are as useful as the "parasites" in the welfare office...

    The government is losing money by bailing out the rich constantly. It's time for them to repay the government and the taxpayers

    They pay 40% of the taxes and make up a smaller percent of the population.
    I think that's contributing more than ****.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    The economy was fine until Democrats controlled Congress in 2007. Pick any metric from 2006 or even 2007 and compare it to today.

    There won't be jobs until the most anti-business government in eighty years is gone.
