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...
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.

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 .

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.
