    This makes total sense. We just gave hundreds of billions to wall street - obviously it needs to be paid for somehow. Clearly the answer is to tax wall street to pay for the handout we gave to wall street

    Tax everyone, even if they didn't receive bailout money? That don't make sense to me.

    Yeah, tax Wall Street and raise the capital gains tax on investors. I'm sure we can get unempoyment to 50 percent if we keep trying.
    Yeah, because lowering capital gains and eliminating the death tax did wonders... for Paris Hilton.

    Some people on this board really have no concept of what true wealth really is and how it is spent... and misspent.

    And, if the Libbos in Congress have their way, none of us ever will.

    Bottom line, however, 250 bucks is 250 bucks. It has the same value to you as it does to anyone else.
    So, because things might change, we should do nothing. Brilliant!

    No, because this tax can and probably will be increased and will only stifle economic growth, it shouldn't be inacted.

    No matter how hard they try, the government isn't going to create wealth.

    So again, because things might change, nothing should be done. I do not ever want to hear you complain about the deficit, since whenever anything is proposed to cut the deficit, you get upset.

    When you say, "things might change", what are you talking about, exactly?

    Stop spending a gazillion dollars on **** that won't produce any return! perhaps the deficit wouldn't be so bad, if we didn't piss money down a rabbit hole.
