I prefer complete laissez faire-which I guess you would call trickle down
those who push socialism fall into two categories
poor competitiors or those who pander to them and use their votes to gain wealth and power without really earning it
the rich pay higer rates on earned income and at least the same rates on unearned income
stop being dishonest. if you think most of the top 2% work on wall street you really are clueless
still waiting for you to tell me what the rich get in direct extra government benefits that the poor or middle class don't get
"The problem in defense is how far you can go without destroying from within what you are trying to defend from without."
~Dwight D. Eisenhower
The Top 1% pay 39% of all fed taxes.
The Top 25% pay 86%.

Every Democrat running for President wants to raise taxes on "the rich," but they will have to do something miraculous to outtax President Bush. Based on the latest available tax data, no Administration in modern history has done more to pry tax revenue from the wealthy.
Last week the Congressional Budget Office joined the IRS in releasing tax numbers for 2005, and part of the news is that the richest 1% paid about 39% of all income taxes that year. The richest 5% paid a tad less than 60%, and the richest 10% paid 70%
