    Confiscated wealth? Did you look at the charts? 99% of people are more productive than ever, work longer hours, and their share in the wealth being generated is less and less. All of the gains in the economy are going to the top 1%. They own the majority of the capital, and it's dangerous because it leads to the "too big to fail" mentality. If they go down, all the capital tied up in the banks and entire economy goes down, so we bail them out. That is a form wealth redistribution.

    And more taxation, means more redistribution. Do you oppose redistribution? Or is it central to your political ideology?

    do you know why? because of investment. I make far more than I spend even with the outrageous taxes I pay. so I invest half my income each year. and yes, each year I am generally wealthier than I was the year before

    why do I have a duty to pay more taxes when I already pay far far more than what I use

    I Love how with you guys....whenever tax cuts favor the working/middle class it is "Wealth Redistribution"
    When tax cuts favor the wealthy its "allowing them to keep more of their money".

    Can you be any more shallow?

    only if you believe all wealth belongs to the government can you claim that taking less from those who already pay more than what they use is no different than allowing those who don't pay for what they use, pay less is the same

    Yes....because enjoying all that America offers should be free and paying back to a country that enables you to enjoy the way of life we do should not be necessary......

    Ever stop to think make not that we are taxing to little but spending and offering too much?

    Plus who is giving out billions in benefits to illegals? Yet refuses to secure the border?

    Really? They did all that and got even richer, that sounds very exceptional skills at debating and politics to me..
