    wow that is stupid. supply side economics is not at fault for lots of people having no marketable skills

    its not the rich's fault that people do drugs, drop out of school or start breeding like rabbits before they have a job or an education



    and the only greed I see is your stereotyping a few million people and claiming that anyone who is successful and/or opposes paying more taxes to keep parasitic pimps in government and the envious minions who vote for them happy is "greedy"

    Wrong, the Dems are the only ones to propose BOTH spending cuts and increasing taxes. The Republicans walked away from $3 in spending cuts for every $1 of tax increases.

    I apparently missed a lot of this conversation since I have no idea how we got on this subject. However, taxes have virtually nothing to do with the current debt. If you want to address the debt you must cut spending. And I don't mean the meaningless crap which has been proposed by everyone on capital hill to date. We're talking a massive slash of at least 50%.

    You think half the country has no marketable skills, do drugs, and dropped out of school???

    Let's see your proof of that statement you pulled out of your ass?

    I certainly do not think that. I think those that suffer from overwhelming greed are only those few of the rich that think the poor should suffer more so they can continue enjoying a 5% lower tax rate, regardless of the fact this cannot support our consumer economy.

    because the dems wanted to increase taxes

    no one should pay higher taxes until the government can demonstrate MASSIVE cuts

    and if you really want tax cuts they should be imposed on those who don't pay enough

    the rich are the ONLY group that pay MORE OF THE INCOME TAX burden than their share of the INCOME. they are overtaxed

    we don't have a duty to keep paying more and more taxes so your dem lords can buy the votes of those who want more stuff paid for by others

    we pay our fair share and much more than that. its time all of those who want a government as big as it is now to start paying more for what they want

    Not possible, that is why the Republicans have not once in the last 30 years reduced the deficit spending significantly.

    The only time that has been done is when both sides came together in the 90s to both cut spending and increase taxes.

    You're fooling yourself if you think spending has ever been significantly decreased. Heck, it doesn't even maintain its present level!

    Re: Romney reveals he pays about 15% in taxes(edited)

    this thread has sort of gone of track but what we have seen is Catawba thinks that if you make a lot of money you have to support higher taxes on yourself or you are greedy or you want to hurt those who aren't smart enough, talented enough or "lucky" enough to do well

    And apparently that is why Catawba and others like him piss and moan about Romney. Romney is evil for doing so well and not calling for 40-50-60-70 percent tax rates on investment income
