    You are talking out your butt now and what you ignore is that the rich have been paying disproportionate taxes long before TARP.

    Increase the revenue, that along with spending cuts is required to reduce the deficit.


    Now back the question you keep skirting, where are the jobs that the tax cuts for the "job creators" for the last decade were supposed to create?

    I couldn't care less if it created jobs. The rich pay too much and that has lead the middle class to demand more and more spending because they think the rich will and should pay for all those government goodies. that is why we have massive deficits

    I bet if we gave you truth serum you would be in favor of confiscating all wealth above a certain level "to end the deficit"

    I couldnt care less why you want the rich to pay more taxes-its mainly because it benefits your dem masters by enabling them to convince the weakminded that taxing the rich more will pay for more vote buying dem schemes.

    TEll me why we should not start with MASSIVE spending cuts before anyone pays anymore taxes

    Catawba has "dem masters" that he serves?

    Please do tell us more. And this time with actual evidence of that relationship and fealty.

    Then there is no incentive for voters to continue voting for people that continue the tax cuts for the rich, that is the point you helped me make.

    part of being an extreme leftwinger is a desire to be ruled by the government

    Yeah that is again your main argument-appeal to envy and parasitic behavior. again, if you had your way you would confiscate all wealth above what you make to benefit your political agenda

    envy blinds lots of lefties when it comes to the wealth of the rich and punishing the rich tends to be all they see-economic rationality plays no role in their jihad to afflict the comfortable in order to buy the support of those who have been told they should feel afflicted
