    Taxing the rich is taxing capital. That hurts more than the rich, it hurts the middle-class. The wealthy create jobs, spend money on cars, vacations, restaurants, travel,etc. that benefits everyone.

    Why do liberals hate the middle class?
    Conservatives want everyone to prosper and that means leaving more money in the hands of everyone, including the wealthy.
    another silly post.

    It's not silly. When you tax more, you can save and invest less, which means less capital available to furnish jobs.

    So if people pay a higher tax they will totally stop investing and the market will shut down?

    I didn't say stop, don't be hyperbolic. I said less capital.

    where did he say that? he said there would be less available. which is absolutely correct. if the govt takes more money from you, you will have less to invest, spend, save, whatever. it ain't rocket science.


    though I do agree with the flat tax. no loop holes for ANYONE.

    Your right, I was being a bit extreme, but regardless at some point the government has to increase taxes to cover the budget deficit accrued through both the Bush and current administration.

    Start spending less and then we'll talk about higher taxes for paying down the deficit.

    Spending indeed needs to be cut, but short of totally bringing all through troops home and allowing unemployment benefits to end there is no way to reduce spending significantly.
