    And yet you accuse her of greed...
    Could someone please explain the logic in that?
    Is she demanding things from government? If so, she is greedy, but unlike the rich man that is greedy for what he has earned, she is greedy for what she hasn't.

    How does Romney pay a lower tax rate than you do? What rate are you paying on your investments? What is bull**** is the liberal argument over what someone else pays in FIT. Your class envy and jealousy is noted.

    Then compare that to raising taxes on those evil rich people and see how much money you will get? your class envy and jealousy is noted
    you really need to stop with the envy crap. why is it that too many times, with wealth comes obliviousness to your fellow citizens? i would love to be rich.......but i'm not. i also don't spend any time envying my friends who are rich (quite rich). i merely want fairness.

    I wished I was the owner of the KY company...and convince all of you just how much you need it. Your politicians of all flavor and government are screwing America to a spiraling death.

    Well if our most wasteful spending means exactly jack **** to you then you are just another that wants his cake and wants to eat it too.

    then stop acting like you have class envy. How did any rich person hurt you or your family? You made a flat out lie, if you have capital gains you pay the same tax rate as Romney but no, you buy the liberal bull****. That makes you look foolish. You don't want fairness for if you did you would expect the 47% of income earning households to pay something in FIT, the 24 million unemployed/under employed Americans to be re-employed full time, and you wouldn't promote punishing producers because you don't think they pay enough when so many aren't paying anything

    Great, then cut the spending first then we can talk about tax increases starting with those that earn income but pay nothing in FIT
