    So does that change in any way your previous belief about the tax ideas of today's Dem and Kennedy Dems?

    In any case, the same across the board is not happening. Neither side will agree to that it seems and it is not coming any time soon. While the buffet rule is not perfect it is a step in the right direction.
    Its a step towards further stupidity. The Bush Tax Cuts lowered everyone's rate about the same, except where folks who weren't paying much could only go so far to get to zero income tax.

    Now you want to raise it back up, but just on the top group. And you call it "fair".

    47% pay no federal income tax. And like you, they want to vote themselves even more largesse of the Treasury.

    Obviously, he would not join the GOP now. They were good with 70% top marginal rate then. Now you guys are talking about 15%.

    You said:

    o, you are afforded more opportunities because of your status. That's fact.

    I say yes this is true, but I have earned them, if your status was that of mine, you would understand this. I was making an educated guess.


    good, then by all means, give up everything you have and start over. Oh wait, you wouldn't do that because you know your comments are BS and don't amount to anything but hot air.


    you make silly comments, I retort in kind, and you throw a tantrum....

    Anyway, I am headed to the Devils games, I have center ice titanium club seats (season ticket holder), dinner at fornos of spain, and perhaps a single malt or two.... before the game, along with a Cohiba siglo IV, my Luminor GMT is telling me it's time to go, so, I will think of you doing whatever it is you do while The Good Reverend is enjoying the high life.


    Ciao!

    Go back. Look really really hard and show me where I said I want to raise taxes on one group. When you give up please do admit you are wrong. I'll be here waiting.

    Of course we need to raise taxes on the top bracket only. They are the ones that don't spend all their income. Turtledude stated that he SAVES 80% of his yearly income for a rainy day. That is hurting our consumer economy that depends on SPENDING to grow and prosper. Taking more from those that already spend all they make is self defeating since that extra tax will come directly out of their spending, lowering GDP by the same amount we tax. Given the total wage stagnation of the 95%, raising taxes on anyone but the top bracket is economic suicide. If you want more people to pay taxes you just have to give them a raise.

    I disagree. Everything should be equal. If you want to charge the rich X % you should be prepared to do that same.

    So charge everyone a flat rate. 15% gets you about 1.3 trillion straight up revenue.
