    If you are so educated how come you need government handouts and I do not? doctor-heal thyself and I have yet to see a credible argument that the government taking more money and engaging in more idiotic spending designed to create more dem voters helps expand the middle class.

    Hurray the tax cuts costs hundreds of billions of dollars and never paid for themselves. Tax cuts for people who weren't even asking for it. Now hows that for libertarian ideology at work in government? Tax cuts don't help that much anyhow.. and increase debt at the same time. Tax cuts = poor stimulus.

    tax cuts cost nothing-only government spending costs money. The rich pay too much already and those who clamor for more spending don't pay enough to get the message that we are going broke

    does saving cost me money? of course not. does my saving cost you money? most likely--and that is why you are upset with tax cuts and I am not

    im sorry and no offense to you, but i do not believe that statistic for a minute.
    id bet the exemptions that are taken advantage of by those "downtrodden" few, more than cover the tax responsibility they bear on the remaining income they could not find a means to hide.

    dont get me wrong, nobody should be required to pay more than their share. but to believe what is reported as their actual taxable income is naive at best.
    the uber wealthy know the ins and outs of tax avoidance and how to manipulate legislation to assure there is the means available.

    you don't have to believe them-the proof of that tax burden has been posted here so many times only a fool would deny it

    and stop talking about the uber wealthy unless the Obamatards are only going to jack up the taxes of the uber wealthy. As of a year from now, a guy making 250K a year will keep as much (or little) of the next dollar he owns as does Bill Gates. and if he dies, every dollar over a million-more than half will go to the greedy government --same as Bill Gates.

    MOre BS-you can scream all you want or posts graphs but tax cuts are not the same as government spending. They don't have to be paid for. Your graph assumes that government spending is necessary at those levels--its not

    that is the reason why your argument always fails.

    yeah why not just take all their assets to slake the envy and hate of people like you

    its time for the rich to wreak retribution on the parasites. Perhaps someone rich employs you. I'd fire you if you worked for me.

    why employ someone who is jealous of his master?

    I'd better be very careful here. I may just learn something.
