    causes one to question who the congress actually serves

    why do you constantly spew your envy and hate of the uber rich when your masters' want to screw over everyone in the top 2%
    why would someone with a professed legal education surmise that because i would expect the uber rich to be taxed progressively that such an opinion is based on either hate or envy
    it simply makes common sense. only someone without out any would be unable to realize that those who have benefited the most from our nation's resources should be expected to pay the most to maintain the nation's greatness

    why do you think someone making 250K a year or a retired person whose only income is now his investment income ought to face tax hikes.
    because at that point of income, their fundamental needs are adequately provided for, leaving room for them to incur additional taxes - paid only above the $250,000 threshold - without significant detriment to their circumstances
    for the same reason i advocate tax relief for the person earning minimum wage, whose income does not begin to cover essential needs

    If you make 200K a year on dividends your tax is going to DOUBLE. but that is ok to you because you figures it will "help the poor"
    if someone possesses enough assets to realize $200,000+ in dividends annually, why would i be worried about their ability to care for themselves financially? answer that, counsel

    as long as you dems and socialists think that the taxpayers have a duty to fund fund and fund some more every act of irresponsible breeding on the grounds not doing so will "hurt the children" the creeping crud of socialism will continue
    one need not be a democrat or a socialist to recognize that hungry CHILDREN need to be fed. and by the government, if necessary, when their parents and the community's social assistance network is unable and/or unwilling to meet their fundamental needs
    but tell us why you think a great nation should allow its CHILDREN to go hungry ... explain that to us, squire

If I can do it, they can do it. and if they can't or won't, then yes...I am better than them. and if they want me to support them, they should acknowledge that fact.

    I was a foster parent for 7-8 years. adopted 2 foster kids. the state already pays foster parents around $450/month to help support them. no one is going to starve if they don't pass this stupid bill.

    I suppose my view is different because I'm a Mom going through college, not single and childless.

    hate??? a little strong. I prefer to be truthful and think of it as disdain and disgust for those unwilling to do what I have done. envy??? why should I envy some lowlife lazy piece of filth who is unwilling to do what it takes to better themself?

    I started with nothing and made something of myself. how can I not be "better" than someone who started with nothing and remained nothing?

    What about those who are unable?

    It's great that you were young, childless, single, and physically capable - but many other aren't and shouldn't be swept into your wide brush.

    reading trouble? I was not childless and single.

    please, I have never stated that those who are "unable" should be punished. but far too many people cry unable, when they are really just unwilling.

    please point out all of the posts in this thread where forum members have advocated for assisting those who are unwilling to help themselves
