    To put this in perspective, the top 1 percent is comprised of just 1.4 million taxpayers and they pay a larger share of the income tax burden now than the bottom 134 million taxpayers combined.

    Good, now why don't you tell us who the other socialists are, and how you came to the conclusion that they are socialists.

    Your newspeak is strong.

    If there had been no vote on the issue at all what would have happened?
    I may be wrong.

    anyway, the whole thing is rather moot, it's a DONE DEAL

    taxes will NOT be raised on anyone, not even those wealthy greedheads who got where they are because of conducive societal frameworks

    it all went down in the senate THIS MORNING

    thanks, once more, to combat boots webb, jiltin joe lieberman, bye bye evan bayh, contrarian kent conrad (budget chair), malcontent joe manchin...

    That's a crying shame, but it's hardly a done deal. Nothing is a done deal in politics, ever.

    And nobody wanted to "raise" taxes, only to lift the ridiculous cuts. I'm glad it happened, actually. A complete collapse of our economic system opens the door for a third, left-wing party that has a mind the completely revamp the American economic system. As long as American capitalism functions, it will be maintained by the powers that be. This may actually be a chance for us to rise like the phoenix out of the ashes.

    Thanks for trying.
    If you want me to uncover the closet socialists start another thread. That isn't the thread topic but it does give you the opportunity to see your name in print and to divert from the thread topic. Being very liberal means nothing but diversion and off topic posts. Thanks for playing.

    First of all, I don't give a damn what your "preferred version" is.

    Secondly, you don't live in a third world country. You live in a country where everyone is, to some extent, dependent on the labor of others. It's a simple division of labor. Nobody would be where they are today if society didn't have every kind of labor -- from burger flippers to loggers. You are, to one degree on another, dependent on others to uphold a society that permits you to secure wealth and then secures that wealth for you from theft.

    You can't be a lawyer without people to pass laws and then people to judge cases, or without people to teach your law classes, or without people who make all of the paper you use. If you worked hard in law school, good for you, but other people's labor made it possible, not just your own. In exchange for all of that, it's incumbent on you to do your part to ensure a society where everyone has the same opportunities as you.

    Now, respond without blabbering about the Founders or a rant about personal responsibility. Thanks in advance.
    We call it a "Democratic Republic" ... the framework, that is. The only "labor" that i got that wasn't willingly given in return for income was from my parents. Otherwise, all voluntarily sold their services and product to me, either directly or via taxes, and with that income then went and purchased the services and production of others for their own use. However, it is not incumbant on me to provide opportunity to anyone. That is horse****. Show me any law that says I have to "provide opportunity". There are laws by which I have to respect the rights and property of others, and laws where I am limited in my ability to discriminate where I enter into contracts with or provide service to others, but you version of "opportunity" is not founded in law.

    Now, with all your blustering, I will ask you again. Can you demonstrate how these rich folks, specifically that being people with incomes between $250-500K, are not earning their money ? Or are these the ramblings of a terrapin expecting something for nothing ?

    Oooops. Just saw the ban. Guess no answer will be forthcoming .

    So what? That does not mean the are not taxpayers. Virtually everyone is taxed and pays some form of tax. The 47% of the people you cite pay a much higher percentage of their incomes on sales tax, gasoline tax and FICA that the other 53%, giving them the right to bitch and moan that the 53% have it easy.

    I love these people that cite that so much of the population pays no tax, yet they are so quick to add up all of the taxes and tell you they are paying more then half their income in tax (which is a complete myth, but that is another discussion). Let's be intellectually honest here... either income tax is just a particular form of tax, in which case no one is exempt of taxation; or income tax is the only tax.... in which case, its hard to complain about taxes as it rare that one pays more that 25% of his income in income tax.

    Stop with your class envy. Everyone has a tax burden.
