    Having taxes at what almost any person would call a reasonable level is not a bad thing, it's not on the wrong side of the laffer curve, it isn't proven to spurn growth or limit revenue, and isn't socialism or communism.
    Don't even start that lame nonsense. Roads are for everyone. Wealth redistribution is taking money from one person and giving it to another in a misguided attempt to "even the score". Medicaid is a good example of wealth redistribution. The people who GET it aren't the ones that PAY for it. It is taking money from one group of people to buy stuff for another group of people. You are typical for today's liberals. The central pillar of the left's philosophy is to get the government to tax the rich in order to give you stuff YOU want. Basically, liberals are just thieves that are so lazy and cowardly that they demand the government do their stealing for them.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Don't worry, CT is right there with you.


    In fact, from what I've seen of the NE, it's a trend. Uber high living expenses couple only slightly higher pay scales, resulting in either wealthy, upper middle or higher....and then lower middle, debt hounds, and the poor.

    But, what makes you think your grandkids won't be penalized for their efforts? Perhaps Texas is one of the seven states with no state income taxes, but you can bet there are other taxes that they have to pay. Moreover, they will pay federal taxes, and live under federal laws.
    Because my kids learned personal responsibility and both have done extremely good through their efforts and they are passing on those traits to their kids. Most of the other taxes that people pay are use taxes, don't use the product or service and don't pay the taxes. My kids and grandkids have learned and are learning that true power comes from the individual and accepting personal responsibility for the choices made. All they are given is opportunity and the freedom of choice comes with responsibility

    It's how America is going in general, but yes it is exacerbated on the east coast.

    Still believing the rhetoric and ignoring the results? Seems that liberal wants ignore reality. Obama has been in office 6 years, had a Democrat Senate the entire time and had a filibuster proof Congress part of his first term and the results are mediocre at best showing just how incompetent he is. Why do you people like you always buy the rhetoric and ignore the results. Are you happy that he cut the deficit in half as he added 7.6 trillion to the debt? Are you happy that he had the greatest job creation in decades to get us back to pre recession levels ignoring population growth? Why are your expectations so low/

    you do realize that it wasn't rich people that crashed the market right?
    you do realize that your pay doesn't come from the bum on the side of the street right?

    lol if you don't like getting paid what you get paid do something to improve it.
    that is what all those evil rich people did.

    Rich liberals are the reason... spending, and keeping poor poor by taxing and giving them services. it's also designed to hurt the upper middle class by treating them like the lautenbergs, corzines, etc...
