    Clearly that was a demo BY YOU of "unfair".

    You are welcome however (in fact still need) to respond to this conondrum of WHO IS going to pay/pay more (pay at all even without Obamacare) since you are against these higher rates for the rich.

    Again.. there is only ONE answer.. you conveniently wanted No part of.

    In my defense, it seems like we're chock full of them lately.

    I don't think it's about fairness so much as it is about good policy.

    You are welcome however (in fact still need) to respond to this conondrum of WHO IS going to pay/pay more (pay at all even without Obamacare) since you are against these higher rates for the rich.
    Substantial budget cuts almost across the board and a simpler and more stratified tax system should do it.

    Not in your defense you DID imply++ it was unfair/Gave (the old 1% pay..") routine.

    Substantial budget cuts almost across the board and a simpler and more stratified tax system should do it.
    Afraid NOT, entitlements, Debt service, (The Great Majority of the budget is NON-discretionary) and with even a meager national defense, that won't do it.


    All you had to do was ask.
    I asked twice.
    You still can't say it.. "The rich DO have to pay more"

    Have a Good night ALL!

    Okay.

    Afarid NOT, entitlements, Debt service, (The Great Majority of the budget is NON-discretionary) and with even a meager national defense, that won't do it.
    No, it's most certainly possible.

    First, the "non-discretionary" thing is a load of ****. It's simply things that Congress gets to spend without having to go through the political rigmarole of enacting. Congress can cut whatever it wants.

    I asked twice.
    You still can't say it.. "The rich DO have to pay more"
    "The rich" as a collective don't have to, but they certainly could. Hence my comment about stratification.

    I would have no problem with modest tax increases on those making over something like $1m/annually, with additional increases on those making over $10m or so.

    Whose welfare? It sure as **** isn't advancing mine or my family's. The more they take from me, the less I can give to my family and the more time I have to spend away from them working. ****ing wonderful idea. Give the government all of our money and let them take care of us? **** that ****.

    They don't have a tyrannical grip on me.

    Get rid of insurance and government involvement, and the problem goes away. But instead, ****tards want to increase insurance's foothold AND government involvement (the two things that got us into this "mess" to begin with) and on top of that, take more of our money away. Absolutely ****ing retarded.
