    is it fair that some millionaires and billionaires pay a lower effective FIT rate that middle-class people?

    OWS reminds me of the war protesters in the 60's. Those people were out of touch with reality and the OWS crowd is no different today only worse. These are the entitlement mentality group who don't want to work but want someone else's wealth. That is totally and completely wrong. These worthless individuals are committing suicide as the poll numbers are now showing and they are doing it with their attitudes and their actions.

    Where does the money come to pay U.S. Savings bonds?

    Why do you care what someone else pays in taxes? "Your" President put together a non partisan commission, Simpson/Bowles, that came back with a reasonable proposal that didn't tell Obama what he wanted to hear so he ignored their recommendations, lower the tax rates and eliminate deductions. Every time rates have been lowered tax revenue grew and that is reality.

    Savings bonds aren't trillion dollars in debt nor are they trillions in liabilities.

    Social Security isn't in debt, they have roughly $2.4 trillion in assets.

    Right, most of those assets are in the form of an IOU. Where is the money going to come from to repay those IOU's? it won't be like redeeming a savings bond, we are talking billions of dollars at once
