    is your only grounds that of revenue?

    if we confiscated all income above say 100K revenues would go way up (as would the body count on both sides) but would there be legitimate grounds to oppose it

    if the constitution was taken seriously, equal protection would demand that everyone keeps the same amount of the next dollar they earn

    Yes, those of us that are intelligent have to deal with the ignorant.

    Re: John Boehner speaks of tax compromise

    I thought I might add my opinion, but Turtledude and his sort seem to have already assigned me one. Apparently, the only reason I support raising taxes on the upper class because I'm jealous and I want the money to come to my pocket!

    Since we get to hand out ridiculous opinions to the opposition now, conservatives support eugenics. I totally hate how conservatives are always supporting eugenics.

    That the socialist programs always fail to improve anyone's life isn't as important to them as the fact that "the rich" have been robbed.

    The lower class people duped by the socialist promises of something for nothing of course expect more handouts. Look at those dumb people expecting Obama to buy their houses for them after their messiah was elected. Look at those dumb people demanding yet another "stimulus". They're all goonion folk waiting for the socialist gravy train to stop at their doorstep.

    The one thing they have in common is total disdain for the American ideals of independence, self-reliance, hard work, self-respect, honesty and integrity.
    what the libs I have been debating, or brushing off my pant legs fail to note, that the current system is doomed to fail sooner or later

    since the majority of those who vote for people like obama continue to vote for his ilk based on promises of

    1) they will get more and more government services

    2) they won't have to pay additional (assuming they pay income taxes in the first place) taxes for additional handouts

    3) and only the evil rich will be soaked

    they will continue to vote for the people who give them stuff and have ABSOLUTELY NO INCENTIVE to demand their masters to stop the insane spending.

    one day the money will run out and these dependents will be like birds who depend on a feeder all year long finding that the owners forgot to put the birdfeed out in the coldest days of winter.

    its gonna be ugly and these parasite enablers continue to act as if this is not a possibility

    Please I know about the Laffer curve, and it will make a difference at the edges (a measurable one) but not in the middle

    feel free to make a rational argument as to how you are helped by the people who pay most of the taxes having to pay even more while you get to keep your tax cut

    the crap that you cannot afford it is bunk. if you dems are serious about stopping the deficit growing and growing you need to give up tons of dem created entitlements and tell your voting block they need to start paying far more of the taxes

    Perhaps takle a look at the quote that I responded to, whether tax revenues increase or decrease over time in response to a tax cut is questionable, unless one also looks at what revenues would have been without the tax cut



    How do you measure how much protection one receives from the military, the police, the fire department, the FDA to account for how much in govermnment services they have received

    The largest tax increase in history up to that time.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
