    Again...you are confusing "CAUSE" with "CURE". Another conservative did the same exact thing earlier.

    Try again.
    I have not-I am merely responding to the claims as they merit. I am merely telling those who argue for welfare socialism wealth redistribution as a vaccine against french revolution type nastiness that such a threat doesn't scare many of us in the least and we don't find it a viable or realistic argument for wealth redistribution

A flat tax would barely affect the middle class and would greatly affect the higher end individuals especially if you eliminate ALL the tax breaks they receive and actually take 30% from them.
    the problem with that oozing BS is that the Buffett "rule" dishonestly includes all taxes that the middle class pays-state, local and federal, progressive flat or fixed fees, and then tries to apply that same total rate to ONE KIND of tax and for the rich only without taking into account other taxes the rich pay Its complete BS

    So you are wrong on the effective rate for middle income earners, too.


    Still waiting for your proof that flat taxes decrease WEALTH INEQUALITY.

    More lies

    first of all dividend income is taxed twice in many cases

    secondly short term investment income is taxed the same as earned income

    long term capital gains face both risk and inflation

    so your claims are horsecrap. They aren't getting huge breaks. They are still paying far more and getting NOTHING additional in return.

    So your claims are specious

    The main people that would benefit from a flat tax is the rich.
    well the current system completely screws the rich compared to everyone else

    you argue that more fairness is unfair to those who get all the benefits of citizenship and pay far less than they can or should (based on what they demand)

    The Buffett rule would fund that government for about 11 hours. For Ubama it is not a fix it is a step to take all the money from the top 10% and then on down the line. The Marxist at work.
    If it sounds like Marx and acts like Stalin...it must be Obama

    Now this is exactly what I thought. The Buffett Rule is all hype and no money. Hell the GSA has probably wasted this much on their "conferences".
