    It is not mandatory after 106k on a payroll.

    Do you have a point? Why should someone else pay for my SS? I learned personal responsibility a long time ago.

    In a global economy why would you make the corporate taxes higher than they are now which are the highest in the world?

    Notice how I whittled this down? Wanna know the reason? I deemed that most of your post didn’t pertain a whet to what we were discussing, the part that I kept just barely qualifies.

    I guess your saying that somehow in a global econmy that some giant corps would take there business elsewhere eh?Hhmm…lets see how they do attempting to sell their goods outside the largest econmy in the world. They sure wouldn’t be welcome in this country, if they tried to skate off because of the tax rate.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Are you saying boycot? Why wouldn't they be welcome in this country? We welcome cheaper goods and services daily.

    Which I believe I addressed and obviously you felt no need to address yourself. If you wish to ignore the replies to your positions there is once again another reason to not bother.

    I actually to some extent agree with this portion of the argument. ALL of my income is subjected to the FICA taxation for the congress to pilfer. Why shouldn't someone who makes more than that $106K start getting breaks I don't get. However, if you really want to make my life better in about 15 years, you'd get behind privatization of some portion of SS and let me see how my money can grow rather than trying to make me dependent on government right before I die.

    You make a lot of wild speculations yet never back them up. Prove that corporations are the problem and that they don't provide a "fair" wage and benefits? You want badly to demonize corporations yet never offer any solutions. You are just like the OWS crowd.

    Wouldn't go that far. I believe no president can FIX the economy. Calls for one to do so is silly. I believe Obama did much of what could be done. The only other thing he could have done was spend more, which would have made tea party memebers heads explode.

    Government can control the debte, which would help, but very little else. Business cylces, and any real solutiont o the economy will come from people outside government. Tax cuts won't save us. Government spending is only temporary relief at best.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Everyone has skin in the game. You msitaking believe that FIT are the only taxes that can give skin. That's a false assumption on your part. You want more paying more, help more people get back to the middle class. At least give them as much help as you freely give the wealthy.
