    "A lot of people contributing?" You mean the 47% that don't pay any Federal Income taxes? How about the 16 million unemployed Americans that pay little in Federal Income taxes? You seem concerned about how much the top 2% pay but not the millions and millions who pay very little or no Federal Income taxes.

    I have yet to see you refute any of the facts showing the results of this Administration. When someone posts actual facts, people like you call them sterotypes in order to divert from those facts. Brainwashed individual support the liberal ideology because it makes them feel good and after all feelings mean more than actual results.

    No, you haven't shown how it will help the deficit but you have posted Obama talking points while ignoring that none of the Obama economic predictions has been accurate yet for some reason that the prediction that tax increases on the rich will lower the deficit. If Obama cared about the deficit he would have used the TARP repayment to lower it but didn't. Where is your outrage?

    Because it's the duty of the few, to take care of the many.

    1) that is speculation on your part-you assume tax hikes mean more revenue which is a guess on your part

    2) you support Obama and his massive spending which is far outpacing what would be supposedly gained by even the massive tax hikes obama wants

    3) I can prove tax hikes hurt me and others but you cannot prove they will do any good. that means your argumet is bogus.

    4) you have been asked if you are willing to pay the same percentage of taxes on your next dollar as me--if you really believed the BS you spew you would but we all know that you want others to carry the load

    5) You have never come close to making a credible argument that "the rich" get any additional benefits from getting taxed more

    Not the way I would put it, but I would say then when asked who should do the hard things in life, I would those who can. My wife calls me when there is heavy lifting that needs to be done. So do the kids. Nothing wrong with that as I'm stronger.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Yep, I see that every day at the state and local level, but liberals believe in a large bloated Federal Govt. doing what the local government should be doing.

    1) certainly a better chance of more revenue.

    2) No, I have called for less spending. The difference is where I would cut.

    3) No, I don't think you have proven any such thing, and I have supported that it will help with the deficit. I've offered a couple of analysis that say they will.

    4) And I have answered, I have no problem with a progressive tax. I don't complain about those who pay less than me or ask they they match me, and I don't care if those who make more than me pay more.

    5) I have offered a couple of studies that say so. Why you would call that close to credible is beyond me.

    The government has the right to tax. We did not revolt because we didn't believe in this right. We revolted because we didn't have representation. Today we have representation. And what I say applies to both voluneteering and taxes.
