    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.
    You spend alot of your time here demanding others pay more taxes.

    Unless you are willing to pay as much as those you want to soak even more, you have no position to talk
    you certainly use as much government services as I do-and probably more

    comparing physical strength to personal wealth is a flawed analogy.

    That's absurd, but I don't mind my taxes being raised to low the debt. And I still believe in a progressive tax and don't care if those below me don't get their taxes raised. No envey from me.

    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.

    I don't think so, in the context of which I use it. It boils down to who is better able to contribute the most. Nearly all governments have some form of progressive tax, and they have it for a reason.

    so how much extra do you give to the government

    and what exactly do I get that you do not From the government for paying top 1% tax bills?

    almost all governments are corrupt and wasteful

    justifying such idiocy which appeals to the lowest common denominator is hardly a sound argument

    No, not really, but if they needed me, and reason was good enough, it would be fair to ask and I should lift it. The family can be seen aas a smaller version (you know, like running my home finances like the government runs its finanaces).

    That can be said about almost anything. Private corrporations aren't prue either. Neither are the wealthy, or the poor, or the middle class. All should be held accountable.

    I've already linked for you what you get.

    And I pay the tax in my bracket. You should do the same.
