    It doesn't really matter where the money comes from, be it tax revenue, or non-tax revenue, they still don't pay taxes.

    Yeah, and the Bush Tax Cuts have not created jobs. The country needs more revenue, letting the tax cuts expire is a good thing.

    That's the point. What is the daily dosage? What is the maximum, or minimum, someone should be taxed?

    Where does it stop being healthy and starts to become unhealthy?

    govt. employees pay federal, state, local, FICA, and Medicare taxes.

    Forgetting all about the actual labor or service that the government employee provided to the society.

    Before our progressive tax system was cut, we had a half century of stable growth when tax rates for the rich were much more than anything being proposed.

    It's still a net loss for the non governmental taxpayer.

    There have been 230,000 people added to the federal government since BHO took office. Were these jobs really necessary?

    No one really knows, but these people will be making good money with good pensions and somebody will have to pay. It doesn't seem like the country can really afford these people, no matter how much tax from their wages they might pay..
