    but you support raising taxes on those making more than 200K

    do they have a duty to pay down the deficit while those who most caused it to get so big continue to get cuts

    what incentive does the other 98% have to reign in spending and shrink the deficit when you dems only want the "rich" to have to pay for it

    why should people who already pay far far more than they use face even higher taxes?

    When something is not needed, people get angry. When people have an large abundance and others live paycheck to paycheck working thier ass off for 12 hours a day plus overtime or somoeone cant even find a job..... and THEN the ones with a large abundance get even MORE breaks..... you can see why people would get ticked.
    These individuals deserve ZERO tax gifts. If..... IF.... they own a company.... then the company should get certain tax incentives to grow their business. Then that individual who OWNS that company should be happy as a clam.

    Its common sense (only for folks that have it)

    so you essentially are a marxist

    from each according to their ability

    envy of those who do better

    do you think kids who make straight A's in high school should have to give some of their A marks to the lazy and the stupid who earn only D's?

    You know, the Republicans are in the wrong here, and so are the Democrats. I am going to take an extremely unpopular position, but at least it will be an honest one.

    The budget needs to be balanced. That means no tax cuts for the wealthy, no tax cuts for the middle class, and no tax cuts for the poor. No tax cuts at all, but a tax increase instead. We are not going to be able to spend our way out of this one, and although spending decreases will help, it won't be enough. We will also have to raise taxes, if we are going to have any hope of balancing the budget, and once again living within our means. To do otherwise is going to be economic suicide.

    But some of you will exclaim "What an order. This isn't fair". To that, I reply "Yes, it IS fair". Or would you try and tell me that none of us is responsible for his or her actions? You and I, the American people, voted for those who ran our economy off a cliff, and therefore, we are ALL responsible. The time for blaming the politicians is long past. We voted for them. Now we must accept the consequences, as a people, for our own actions.

    To the rich - You are disgusting, and you make me want to puke. Stop your God damn whining, and suck it up. YOU voted for what happened.

    To the middle class - You too. YOU voted for what happened, so man up, and take what's coming, ya' damn crybabies.

    To the poor - YOU voted for it too. Suck it up. It is time to pay for what you voted for. Quit your damn sniveling.

    To ALL of you - Did you really think for a second that we could support spending our nation into the poor house without there being consequences? Well, the consequences have now come home to roost. Quit being a bunch of damn crybabies, and start taking a little responsibility for what YOU did to our country.

    And now, once again, since I have now pissed off just about everybody, it is flameproof suit time for me.

    I hate this ad hom garbage.

    So essentially you are a fascist

    the weak deserve to die off and struggle because they are by design inferior

    discriminate against people who do not conform to your authoritarian and sick worldview

    do you think just because you are smart and intelligent you should have special priviledge under the American democratic system?

    see its easy!

    Valid question. The tax rate for the highest earners is scheduled to rise from 35% to 39%. How high do you think it should go? Got any limit in mind for just how high of a rate those evil bastards should have to pay? 50%? 70%? 100%...?
