    There is no law against donating to the IRS

    What, you kept all your money instead of ssending more to the govt. so it will "help" the bureaucrats? Interesting. Can't help but notice how you run from the facts presented, i.e. that INCOME TAX revenue grew AFTER the JFK, Reagan, and GW Bush tax cuts. Left leaning individuals never like being challenged, do they?

    I was once told that liberals want to spread their misery equally to everyone else. Ever seen a happy liberal and they are at their best when they are forcing someone else to send more of their own money to the govt. but only to fund programs they deem worthy. The highest deficit on record continues to thrend of this Administration. Wonder what that deficit would have been had Obama focused on allowing the private sector to put 16 million plus Americans back to work thus paying taxes?

    Does seem like a reasonable question. You are promoting/insisting that others (top earners) pony up more cash and add more skin to the game.

    We are all in this mess together. What additional contributions are you willing to make to help the cause??

    (Let's be fair about this.... )

    If liberals were really concerned about fairness they would be talking about the 47% of the American income earners that didn't pay a dime in Federal Income taxes last year instead of worrying about taking more from the top 2%. Notice how proponents of higher taxes on the rich ignore that reality?

    You go where the available money is. And that is the reality of it.

    Interesting, I don't see a lot of happiness on the part of those on the left who are always complaining about fairness and what someone else makes or pays in taxes. Think that class envy signifies happiness?

    So rich "liberals" don't have available money to send to the govt. to "help"? How much extra are you sending in to the govt?
