    Right, I was asking for clarification, not putting words in your mouth.

    I posted this before and never got a straight answer. Adam, Hay, how much of a cut do you think government should get, expressed in percentages? Please be specific include both corporate taxes then dividends. Explain your rationale if you could as well.

    most of them will never say because they believe that the government needs the money of those richer than they more than those who earned the income

    its like asking a gun hater at what point do gun laws become "unreasonable"

    You seem to think they're too high. So how low should they go? And why?
