    the rich already subsidize the middle class's government services. the middle class does not get proper feedback as to the cost of the government it wants. raising taxes on the rich so the middle class can get more goodies without paying properly for them will only encourage more and more government spending

    For the 1000th time, please learn about facts and citations instead of quoting limbaugh.

    The top 5% wealthiest Americans only pay 37.1% of the total tax burden. . .

    Next 4%. . .15.5%
    Top 1%. . .21.6%

    why are you dishonestly confusing total tax burden which includes state taxes such as taxes on tobacco and booze and car registrations with the federal income tax which I clearly indicated.

    and if the poor pay taxes on booze or smokes with money given to them by the government are they really paying that tax or is it people like me who fund the handouts who are actually paying the taxes?

    The problem is that since we have a special code for inherited wealth, one can exempt the first five or ten million (depending on ones circumstances) from tax. That needs to stop.

    the top FIVE PERCENT pay almost SIXTY percent of the income tax

    the TOP ONE PERCENT pay 37% of the income tax and if you throw in the Death tax (which only the top one percent pay) as a income tax surcharge, the top one percent are paying 40% or more of the FIT/Death tax

    look at the numbers-the top one percent has paid over 40% of the FIT in recent years

    Connecting the vote to taxes was considered so un-American that we passed a Constitutional amendment against the practice.

    Now back to the topic, please tell me exactly how some rich person kept you from becoming rich and how 32 billion dollars per year is going to help pay for the current 500 billion debt each year?

    Must be pretty difficult shuffling around because you constantly get tripped up by the facts. Sorry Con.....but you are dead wrong and have been shown it numerous times. The BLS numbers say that Texas and Mississippi lead the country in the percentage of people working for minimum wage and under. Must make you proud....then again I guess not because you continue to try to distort and dance around. At least its entertaining us all.
