    What I find quite telling is how many people like you care how much someone else pays in Federal Income Taxes but ignores that 50% of income earning families pay zero. No problem here but if you thing we have a revenue problem why not go after income from all income earning families?
    I mean the Holy warS that Cheney and Rumsfeld lied to Congress to sell.

    What taxes do you think that you can collect from people who have zero wealth to show from their work? Are you going to charge them in chickens or fruit baskets or their first born sold into slavery?

    We aren't talking wealth we are talking personal income. You don't seem to understand the difference. If you earn any income you should pay something in FIT before requiring those who do pay most of the taxes to pay more if your belief is we have a revenue problem

    Their personal income is such that after they pay their bills there is nothing left. So their money is all spoken for.

    Are you going to command them to stop paying their bills so that you can add to your wealth?

    How do you know what their bills are? You are part of the problem not part of the solution as it is never anyone else's fault for their own poor choices and failures.

    It's not a blame game. It's reality. Some kids get good parents and some get terrible parents. If we shot everyone who's made a poor choice in life there'd only be you left.

    And that is why we need a 3.77 trillion dollar budget and 17.3 trillion dollar debt? That is liberal logic and what I call spending as much as you want IN THE NAME OF COMPASSION totally ignoring the results. All that debt and we have record numbers dependent on the govt. Sound like a success to you?

    It was conservative policy failures that brought on what we are now working our way out of. Successfully, but not instantly, out of.

    It turns out that compassion is both ethically and fiscally responsible.

    That is your opinion however since Republicans haven't controlled Congress since 2006 your opinion doesn't hold any water.

    By 2096, the die was cast. Double holy wars, tax redistribution tax cuts, Greenspan fueling an already over fueled economy, massive bonuses chasing more unqualified home buyers and investors naive enough to expect that Standard and Poor was responsible in labeling home import age backed derivatives,

    The cracking of the foundation for the whole house of cards was audible. Within months of the change in Congressional seats the Great Recession rumbled into town.
