    when you get old enough to start paying over half your income to the various taxes than maybe you will understand.

    THe real obsession is from those who don't pay for what they use obsessing over increasing taxes on those who do

    You see, most of us were raised learning personal responsibility vs. govt. responsibility. Lower taxes means more take home pay and thus the ability to spend the money as we see fit and thus need less govt. It does seem that many here never learned history and how our country was founded and the economic principles established. Too bad, it used to be a great country built out of a wonderful vision. Our Founders paid the price for poor choices but today there are no consequences for poor choices as far too many expect to be bailed out for those choices and that includes business.

    "People" like me? I don't have any particular envy of affluent Americans I just think that everyone needs to do their part?

    That's fair-I don't take your populist and inconsistent rantings seriously at all either given you have no logical manner to your bloviations

    the issue is not ending tax breaks on those making a million or more-its about people making 200K or more and nothing is worse than those who want others' taxes (those who already pay far more than their fair share) to increase while not wanting to pay more themselves.

    SS and Medicare are funded by Payroll taxes, wars are funded by income taxes and 47% of the people aren't paying any Federal Income taxes. You think that is fair since those not paying taxes are the ones getting the subsidies and most of that so called govt. help? Now you want to raise the taxes on the top 2% as if that will make a difference in the deficit?

    But the 47% not paying taxes are probably supplying 98% of the enlisted troops...
