    Is that how you feel? I put your sock puppets on ignore, looks like you are next.

    Trickle down does not create opportunities across the board, what it does do is it creates a cadre of toadies, willing to shill for a few bucks off their taxes while the truly rich get exponentially more tax savings.
    You don't want to tax the wages of the living rich or the estates of the dead rich.
    And they love you for it...but don't expect to be invited to their homes for BBQ...
    this is an apparent example of what liberals believe is fair, how about you?

    There are no Tax cuts here, the discussion is about extending the current RATES or RATE HIKES.

    The top 1% of wage earners make 20% of all income and pay 38% of all taxes.
    The top 5% of wage earners make 34.7% of all income and pay 58.7% of all taxes.
    The top 10% of wage earners make 45.8% of all income and pay 69.9% of all taxes.

    The bottom 50% make 12.8% of all income and pay 2.7% of all taxes.

    Currently approximately 47% of all Americans pay nothing and actually get money back making their tax rate negative.

    I will check those sites after I finish replying to this post. But first off, I love how you instantly assume three things but two sentences. 1. I am a liberal, that is completely false. 2. I like Obama, completely false. 3. I wasn't alive during his regime, guess 1/3 isn't too bad...

    Those are not toadies, they are several negative things I can think of, but not toadies to the rich...

    Instead of raising taxes on the poor or middle class why not address the massive income disparity?

    Why do you believe that is the role of the Federal govt? Looks to me like you don't understand free enterprise and capitalism. What is preventing the poor from becoming rich? Think about it. How is a rich person keeping you poor?

    Free enterprise? Please, the economy today is tightly regulated by the state. They just put the word "free" in front of it to appeal to the masses.

    Some poor can become rich but most the opportunities do not arise regardless of the person in question. "You" as in me personally or in general? I will speak generally... The rich keep the person poor by giving them a significant portion less then what their labor actually creates. They do so to create profit. That is how Capitalism works, underselling the workers. It is more extreme in some cases, most significant in the Third World, but it is true domestically all the same.

    Right, that is how Bill Gates got rich, or Warren Buffet, or Jon Huntsman along with hundreds of thousands of others. You have a distorted view of the best economy in the world but seem too to have only tunnel vision. If you have a better answer, let's hear it.

    Well, I don't think anyone of them should be living in such extravagance with so much poverty around them.

    I disagree. And solution? Gift economy.

    Being in California you would understand a gift economy. Doubt that anyone should be taking any comments from a Californian seriously. What is your state now, 158+ billion in debt?
