    Taxes benefit the rich more than the poor, otherwise we wouldn't have record numbers of poor. You want to trade places with half the country that you think have it made???

    History says otherwise:

    "After eight years, the results of President Clinton’s economic leadership are clear. Record budget deficits have become record surpluses, 22 million new jobs have been created, unemployment and core inflation are at their lowest levels in more than 30 years, and America is in the midst of the longest economic expansion in our history."

    Let's not fool ourselves about Romney either. He is very much a Big Government politician.

    For the record, federal outlays in constant dollars is shown here:
    1989 - 1,399.7
    1990 - 1,483.6
    1991 - 1,501.6
    1992 - 1,515.2
    1993 - 1,507.7
    1994 - 1,531.9
    1995 - 1,551.5
    1996 - 1,560.6
    1997 - 1,568.8
    1998 - 1,598.7
    1999 - 1,619.9
    2000 - 1,659.5

    Please note the increase in spending every single year.

    that is a bald faced lie

    1) Obama claimed that everyone must sacrifice. everyone but the rich will sacrifice by having less government spending while the rich will sacrifice by paying more taxes. that statement of Obama slaps away your claim

    2) the more we spend on the poor the more dependent they become on that spending. You are right to one extent, taxes seized to help the poor really help only rich politicians and their toadies in the bureaucracy but they don't help people like me

    3) you cannot possibly have read my comment to actually believe that I said they "have it made"

    I said they want more government and they want OTHERS to pay for that

    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
    Who the hell is calling for 40 - 70% tax rates on investments. The rate under the conservative Reagan will be just fine.

    and the left believes that the rich have an unceasing duty to keep paying more and more taxes as long as the Government needs it

    ask our tax hikers on this forum what would be too much taxes-you almost never will get an answer. some want a 90% tax rate

    I have seen dozens of posts wanting to go back to 70-90% rates and several of the people who constantly "like" your posts want investment income treated the same as earned income meaning taxed at 70-90%

    Yes, much slower growth in spending than either before or after, and you forgot to include the other side of the budget, the increased revenues derived from the tax increases that allowed us to balance the budget.

    The only time in the last 30 years it has been done.

    Numbering your opinions may impress others, not me.

    Come back with some facts when you can find them.
