    you apparently have the right to post lies as well

    the rich pay higher taxes on like income

    and you seem to have no problem with most of america paying much lower rates than the rich so your indignation is a joke

    and no, you have no credibility to demand others pay more when they are already paying much more than you do and getting NOTHING additional in return

    stop lying. I said you should not be able to vote on increasing a tax if that increase does not affect your tax bills

    I guess in your mind that is a justification.

    oh, so you want folks who don't pay any income taxes to be able to vote in Federal elections?

    Um. T-dude.

    They don't get to vote on increasing taxes. Congress does that.

    It will depend on whether the American people want tax revenues to slowly increase over many years, or to increase more rapidly through elimination of tax breaks for the rich to help address our budget deficit and to stimulate our economy.

    According to the polls, the majority of Americans are saying they think the tax breaks for the rich should be eliminated.

    Yep, that's what needs to be fixed, all the income that the rich pay a lower tax rate on.

    That would make sense only if the rich had not been allowed to vote (or buying off politicians) to decrease their taxes over the last 30 years.
