    Maybe you would not mind posting up a list of people who have written a whopping check to the government when they didn't have too.

    Liberals, tax, borrow, spend, and give free stuff. And more and more Americans are catching on fast. Sit in your front porch rocking chair with a 6 pack and watch the liberals destroy this country. They want the rich bastards to pay more, and more, and more, until it's all gone, then they'll scream in the streets "I want my entitlements".

    What's going on in the progressive movement is pathetic. This country has flipped from one of self-resilience and responsibility, to one of government dependence.

    In my mind, it is much simpler than that.

    Many uneducated people believe that governments and large corporations are flush with tons of cash.

    They believe that there is a little leprechaun who makes money at night, and they can afford anything.

    They are devoid of any fiscal responsibility and common sense.

    Learned something new today. You can literally write a check to the government. This was something I was unaware of.

    Also, Congress can, but rarely do, payback part of their salary to the government.

    I see your slightly liberal or maybe a lot liberal, but that would mean you would not know you could write a bonus check to the government, liberals just want the other guy to do it.

    Quid pro quo for votes is pretty disgusting and to just come out right out and say that was your intent is even worse. While people have been voting for the guy they think will make or help make their lives easier and better is nothing new, hell one could argue its the entire reason to vote, the idea that the government now owes you and not other people because you voted for the winner and other people didn't is pretty damn disgraceful

    She is stupid, but so is spinning this story with assumptions and inferences.
    ""Our people in an overwhelming way supported the re-election of this president and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that," said Watson. "Of course, not just that, but why not?"

    I think quid quo pro pretty much explains it.

    What's the difference between this and the Republicans wanting to elect Romney because he would not wipe out the tax cuts for the wealthy? Is this the pot calling the kettle black or just malinformed blather escaping like uncontrolled diarrhea? Why not try getting on the boat and everyone blowing into the same side of the sail. The hot air might do some good in that instance.

    Careful what you assume about people, you know how that can make you look.

    On that same line of thought, where's the check from Romney or any other conservative? We see just as many conservatives writing checks to the government as we do the liberals.

    It is absolutely amazing that everyone is saying the wealthy can pay more taxes including the wealthy and neocons still won't do it. You live in a fantasy world. There is no doubt in that now. How selfish is it to want the rich to pay no taxes because someday you might be one of them and you really want to stick it to the poor. Really, at this point that is what the argument is. the republicans want the opportunity to flaunt their money over the poor if they somehow become rich. They will suffer any other indignity as long as they are allowed to spit on the poor on the off chance they become rich. This is not even childish anymore. it is downright disgusting.

    Oh, and the answer seems to be that we are going to raise the taxes on the rich. You have some serious problems with your personal character you should really work out.

    And when the 'rich' have given up even more money for services they don't use, and it has not satisfied the the debt or the ever-growing assistance programs, who do you think they will turn to next?

    If they're going to raise taxes, do it across the board.... an arbitrary number picked from the sky to appease those that don't pay the majority taxes, how about they feel the pinch also.... reduce their entitlements..... and see how loud they scream....
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.
