    So be it. If the only thing stopping people from leaving the USA is a higher tax bracket then good riddance. I hope a law is passed to keep them out once they leave. That is not the kind of citizen we need. For me and my family who has been here since the revolutionary war, we will stay and proudly do everything we can to make this a great country again.

    but I am happy to have a flat tax instead, anything to prevent the panderers from buying votes by promising the parasite class and others that they will get what they want at others' expense.

    we owe 13 million because politicians pander to the majority and FDR's judges raped the tenth amendment
    Your a lawyer who is wants to deny me my 1st amendment rights.

    You live in a state that requires high state sales tax, property tax, state income tax and um your consumption based gasoline tax. MOVE

    A flat tax will never happen. You can be happy or sad about it but it will never happen. Mostly because its silly.

    We owe 13 TRILLION (not a slight on your million, I understood what you ment) because big business was allowed to take it. Huge tax breaks for monsanto, exxon, AOB while they make billions. Its not that I dont want everyone to have the chance to get rich. I dont want the odds stacked so everyone cant.

    you really want to parasitize the rich apparently. what we need is to get rid of the ability of a majority to vote up the taxes of the minority

    it also gives congress way too much power

    a person's first duty is to take care of himself and his family, not to suffer theft by the envious

    LOL that's funny but stop the libertarian charade.

    right now the high progressive taxes and the death tax is what keeps hard working people from getting rich and cements the position of the uberwealthy where they are

    get rid of a progressive income tax and a death tax and more will be able to make it to the top

    No, that wasn't a good point. Sorry. Just as there are few pruely socialistic governments in the world, they are few if any pruely capitalistic governments in the world. One reason for this is that both have problems that lead lead countries to have to mix the two economic forms. This doesn't make any country a socialist country. And it is a lie to say it does. From the beginnings of this country it has been clear that capitalism needed some form of regulation, and adjustments have been made ever since, regardless of party BTW. But, politicians have used the tactic of scaring people about socialism for nearly as long as the country has been in existence. All the while both parties have done exactly the same in terms of policy on this issue. No one has led us to a completely capitalistic society.

    The tactic is old, unoriginal and dishonest. There's no real way around that.

    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.

    Your response explains a lot. We don't have a socialist government, cons don't even know the definition of socialist. The Military is a socialist as you can get, so tell me, do you hate the Military?

    you lie out of your six with the crap that the rich "benefit more" In reality the government benefits from the rich not the other way around. its the poor who benefit from the government from the stuff the rich have taken by the government.
    I can't help it if you have bought into the crap your leaders have been feeding you, that the poor are draining the government, when it is the rich that keep sucking the life out of the middle-class. I hope you are one on the top, because if your party gets control again, you might be able to feel the squeeze.

    I didn't understand your blather "its the poor who benefit from the government from the stuff the rich have taken by the government" - is that even a sentence?



    only a COMPLETE MORON would claim that tax cuts are gifts to the rich by the government
    Only a complete moron would think that the expiration of the tax cuts is going to make a difference to the rich and that somehow all that money that conservatives erroneously think has been trickling down, is going to quit trickling down.
    It never has trickled down, it never will!

    Im going to tell a lawyer joke every time you bring up me not beinig a libertarian.

    Whats the difference between a Lawyer and a skunk. . .People try not to hit a skunk when it crosses the street.

    So now your saying that taxes that increase as you make more is what is keeping people from having it. . . um thats backwards.

    While I dont agree that there should even be a death tax, I dont see how you can say that effects anyone other than the wealthy from passing this on.

    Maybe because conservatives have become the biggest baby whiners ever?
