    Ah...sweet. So we can all take a united stand against the pure partisan hack threads that only seem to surface when it is 'the other guy' and that never seem to surface about 'our guy'. OK then...thats a position I can relate to.

    You get of course that my comment had NOTHING to do with Kerry and everything to do with the pure partisan mindset that attacks the republican ahnd ignores the democrat. It says nothing about Romeny...or Kerry...and EVERYTHING about the OP.

    It has nothing to do with partisan hackery. It's a question of tax policy, pure and simple. Kerry and Romney are both examples of the inequity in the system.

    the only inequity is that people like them pay millions and get the same exact benefits from the government as those who pay almost nothing to the federal government or are actually getting net handouts

    Really? The exact same benefits? Are you saying that the average school teacher saved tens of millions of dollars as a result of the TARP program and stimulus funding? Because Romney surely did.

    that is a moronic comment because most rich people who are taxed heavily had no such benefits. and there are milloins of poor getting massive medical treatments paid for by the tax payers. You cannot prove your claim about Romney and that is not the issue

    the fact is millions can vote about tax rates without having any skin in the game

    It is pathetic watching people whine that the rich don't pay enough taxes when they are the only group paying far more of the tax burden than their share of the income and half the country pays no income taxes on a federal level.

    Your rants are hypocritical and specious

    Don't be ridiculous. Anyone with substantial wealth benefitted disproportionately from the financial bailouts and stimulus spending.

    More examples of the government causing income disparity. Those were massive transfers of wealth from the 99% to the 1%. Gee thanks, government creeps.

    Re: Romney's tax rate is only half as high as the middle class pays

    wow, Europeans want Americans to pay more


    BFD
    In the U.S., support for the idea was lower, with more than half opposing it, although four in 10 supported it. “The U.S. does not have a tax rate problem -- we have a spending and entitlement problem,” said poll respondent Jay Wright, managing director of Samco Capital Markets in San Antonio, Texas. “And if we do not address it quickly we are going to be Greece.”

    about half the rich are dems who benefit in terms of power and wealth from having dems in power. its a cost of doing business in order to help the dems win

    If you aren't willing or able to pay the same tax dollars as the rich, your standing to demand they pay more is non-existent in terms of credibility. Catawba constantly yaps others should pay more taxes-what does Catawba pay in taxes each year?
