    Its funny that you didn't say that when Reagan made those huge tax cuts to the upper brackets. Reagan promised that by helping the wealthy the wealth would trickle down to all of us. Isn't that wealth redistribution?

    Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. No truer words were ever said.

    I have no problem for paying my share of government services. most of us who are net tax payers feel that way. what pisses me off is the constant pandering that the left does by claiming I don't pay ENOUGH taxes when I am part of the group that pays far more than we use

    Flawed logic. I understand the need for a bare minimum of taxation-to fund a bare minimum of govt. Im not an anarchist, im a minarchist.

    Well I was 8 when Reagan left office, so I doubt I said that as well.

    Were not talking about tax cuts for anyone...Obama is talking about tax increases.

    So how does removing this money , even if it is only rich peoples money, benefit anyone?....

    I guess that's why Ronald Reagan had the biggest economic expansion of the economy since WWII at that time, and why Obama's economy sucks, right? LOL

    Its time for you to deal in facts and not your leftwing extremist fantasies.

    Liberals are all about envy. Its very ugly.

    Of course, it does require hard work and diligence. Most Liberals are too busy holding their hand out for government freebies to do that. Maybe that's why you don't get it.
