    There are 403 American billionaires. Are you seriously suggesting that those are the only people that will feel the rise in taxes?

    Actually, it would be the same low amount they have been paying. It just won't be lower.

    Ultimately, I see why you support more taxation. So you can make sure your meal ticket keeps coming in.

    So, a person that makes 200 grand equates to a billionaire?

    why do you spend so much time advocating other people pay more taxes when they already pay far more than you do?

    Sounds to me like you're ripping off the government. Either you're full-a-****, or you're lucky you haven't been caught.

    its like gun banners whining about machine guns and bazookas while seeking to ban 22 caliber semi auto plinking rifles. They think that by using Billionaires or "Paris Hilton" the weak minded will not see that they want to jack up taxes on millions of people

    Um...what?

    When you add up all taxes, everyone from 66K up pays about the same tax rate. 30%.
