    And you are right, it would be no big deal, as it was not a hardship in the 1990s as evidenced by our record job creation and record deficit reduction.
    I assume you are talking about returning these rates across the board right? But let's not make the inane argument that the 90s with all of its bubbles is anything close to where we are now in terms of economy. But, ALL rates would rise...the bottom would go from 10% to 15%...that's a 50% increase. How could you be so cruel....?

    I'm sick of your low-tax envy. Envy of the 99%'s low tax rates is the ONLY thing that motivates Republicans.

    Let me guess-you don't believe in doing away all the tax breaks for everyone else.

    right now the top 5% pay more of the income tax than the rest of the country. you want to increase that gap

    and you all never can figure out that even if you taxed the rich 100% at any income over 300K that won't get rid of the deficit. and the government has never made serious spending cuts after tax hikes. when RWR and GHWB increased taxes the dems refused to cut spending

    sorry, I don't trust the federal government to spend less, especially when one party has to keep spending to buy votes

    THat is a most moronic comment. when we propose everyone paying the same flat rate, people like you have a hissy fit. -even though it would be progressive in that the rich would pay far more

    what is funny is that the usual 5-6 posters who constantly bash the rich and whine for higher taxes claim that their motivation is "for the good of society" yet we get stuff like

    1) "I feel really bad for those poor rich"

    2) "maybe they will have to give up buying a second yacht

    3) and of course the famous "the rich should drop to their knees and beg to be able to keep some of what they have"

    pretty hard to argue that economic arguments are what motivates that sort of stuff

    I know that I have earned everything I have...I am not rich, and have been through BK, but I have a house, good job, great family, and good friends....So I guess I am rich....
