    true

    I have no problem with taxing CG but they should be taxed at lower rates (actually earned income should be taxed at a flat rate too)

    dividends are taxed twice by the same government unit though and that is wrong

That is a drop in the bucket in terms of doing anything concerning Obama's run away spending vision. So what gives? Is this just a 'get even' measure? though up by progressives that are jealous that they didn't become successful? or is it a pillar of communism?

    It is a sad time in history we are seeing here folks, hopefully we can endure, and fix what this progressive shift to the planks of Marx is attempting.
    Vitually ever "fact" of the Obama campaign was a blantant lie (repeated as fact by nearly all the media and press) and almost every campaign promise he made was a promise Obama made in 2008 and broke (never mentioned by nearly all of the media and press.)

    Truth has basically no relevance to American politics anymore. Its all theater and acting, little more.

    Dh and I pay more income taxes in a year than most families make in year.
    But I will not complain about the government benefits other families recieve.
    I feel very fortuate that with lots hard work , many hours invested DH's company over the last 40 years that we are doing so well.
    Yes, we are more fortuatant than some but that does not make us any better than anyone else who works hard for a living.
    I am glad I live in a country that does have a safety net for those less fortuate and I do not mind paying a bit higher tax rate than most families.

    Is giving to charity still a necessity?

    The old "value" of giving to charity/church was 10% of income. More if a person rich.
    BUT the government now takes vastly greater amount in taxes - whether a person likes it or not. Its NOT just federal income tax. But the endless excise taxes on products, how products and utilities and fuel and about everything else are taxed over and over and over. There is sales tax. Property tax (directly or thru rent). All the license fees of all kinds. State income tax. Taxes removed from paychecks.

    Since the government took over the charity business, the reality is that every person except the wealthy are already "giving" well over 10%.

    If would seem if the government takes charitable contributions for people over and over and over and over and over, the charity giving part has been taken care of.

    And you have the Republicans in the Bush Congress for that situation. But despite that reality you still give them your votes.

    Now that is interesting. And you have never proven that these people whom you frequently vilify and demonize do indeed get more government services that you or other self claimed rich folks soak up.

    I will be happy to see that evidence.

    Feliz Navidad, rascals. Just make sure you vote correctly or Santa Claus won't stop by. You might even have to go home and we all know what that would mean.

    Boo Hoo, poor me. You make more than me, and I want it, but am unwilling to do the hard work, or take the risk you took to get it. I'm entitled to what you made in the form of redistribution. So give me what I think I am due you greedhead....


    See how that works? Go make your own.

    what a silly post. the top 5% pay 62% of the income taxes. Do you think they get anywhere near 62% of the government benefits?
