    I would say the parasites at P&G want to enjoy the benefits of America's government but never pay taxes for it. I guess they're just too good to chip in for national defense.

    I like how you guys will argue that it's just not FAIR that those filthy poors pay no income taxes and then turn around and argue that investors shouldn't pay any income taxes

    one of the more idiotic claims from the far left is that those of us who are tired of progressive income tax schemes is that we oppose paying taxes

    that is not true-what we are tired of is paying for the benefits of others whose only thanks is to demand we pay even more

    Why pay taxes at all? Why not just print what we need - we seem to do that to a great degree anyway.

    Taxes are about revenue, not fairness.
    Again and again and again.....the additional taxes won't cover spending. In fact, if we took 100% of the income of everyone who made more than $200k and added it to the rest of the tax revenue we would still be more than $1 Trillion short so raising the taxes doesn't solve the deficit. Now, if we could cut spending to just $2 Trillion per year then raising taxes makes sense so that we can start paying down debt but until we get that spending cut raising taxes is pure redistribution for the sake of redistribution.

    Great, so let's just make it a straight 10% on all income no limit....I could do my taxes on a post card....That would be wonderful.

    Aw bull....If they do and get caught, then they deserve what they get, but my feeling is that very few do anything illegal as you try and falsely accuse here.

    You just oppose paying what you are now paying.

    Please. You support regressive effective tax rates. Lets not pretend you're just mad about progressive taxes.

    NO doubt, right now I pay far more than any objective evaluation of "fair share". I pay for many many others who do nothing for me and often vote for pimps like obama who want me to pay even more so he can pander to the parasites and envious

    I support people paying for what they use and not demanding others be forced to fund them
