    What bothers me is the continued brainwashed statements by people like you who have no problem with the way Congress and the President spends our money so rather than correct the problem you want to throw more money at it. Brilliant liberal economics, feed the bear and hope he won't eat you

    So you are unable to present it then.

    The numbers are all available. I'm just curious where your denial is going to take this.

    You ask the question "how much is enough for the federal government"?
    Look inward and ask the same question about multi-millionaires through multi-billionaires.

    Consider the efforts of Rockefeller and Carnegie with respect to making the National Parks and Libraries as great as they are.
    As we continue through our second Gilded Age, when do you think the next Great Depression will occur, dwarfing the first one ?

    Of course I disagree with anyone especially politicians who believe that people keeping more of what they earn is bad and that is an expense to the govt. What accounting class did you take that makes that kind of claim?

    Now I am waiting for you to explain how some rich person prevented you from joining them? If you are rich why aren't you sending more of your income to the Federal Govt. as they do take donations.

    See, you ask what all socialists ask, how much is enough? Why do you care? How does any rich person hurt you or your family?

    With the attitude you and other liberals have there is no question that the next Great Depression will hurt you and those like you a lot more than the top 1%

    apparently they are not available to you.

    About 2.4 million Americans die each year.

    Roughly 33,500 estates filed returns in 2009 but fewer than half—only 14,700—of those estates had to pay any estate tax at all. Estate tax liability totaled $20.6 billion.
    If you do the math, that comes out to 0.006125% of the Americans who died paid the estate tax.

    But you and the radical right wants to call a tax which DOES NOT APPLY to 99.99% of the Americans who died as a death tax because an infinitesimal amount of those who died paid it!!!!!!!

    That might work in Wonderland using Mad Hatter logic but fails utterly in the real world.

    Of course they are available to me. Just as they are available to you. My condolences to the loved ones of the 2.4 million. Thanks for the opportunity to express that.
