    I can honestly see why people like you aren't part of that rich as you have no clue about innovation, creativity, risk taking and instead need the entitlement state. You buy the partisan bs that you believe supports your position not realizing how foolish it makes you look. If there was a 150 billion in lost revenue to the govt, why didn't the govt. cut spending 150 billion to offset it?

    You have offered no facts, you offered projections, show us how the govt. revenue was reduced 150 billion a year because of the tax cuts to the rich? Opinions aren't fact.

    But you mean "except the tax cuts for the rich", don't you? Why are they not considered "hand-outs" in your dictionary?

    See, that is your problem. You've bought into the rich Reps/cons lie that every poor person get financial aid is somehow lazy and unwilling to work. There may be a few of those, there are always people that know how to work the system, but the majority of the people on assistance are not driving Cadillacs and buying beer and cigarettes with their help-money.

    You, also, don't mind giving hand-outs to the rich, so they can buy their 7th house (and forget how many they own), and their 3 and 4th yacht! I wonder why?

    You could CONFISCATE all of the money that the "Wealthy" own and you wouldn't solve any problems

    The "take" other peoples money is your only answer to everything.

    Now, you DO know it's their money, don't you?
    Yeah, and it's their country, too.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Better still, if you want to give your money to the rich, send them your check - I'll continue to fight for fairness.

    Do you get a paycheck? Is that a handout for you to keep more of what you earn?

    I have guns. The point to all this is that almost all money comes from the government in some way or form. It's ridiculous to claim that everything is thusly tax payer paid. Companies get subsidies all the time, schools get money, roads get money, religious organizations get money, etc. To claim that, for instance, my landlord is supported by tax payer dollars because that's where my money comes from is ridiculous. It's not tax payer money once it has been used as compensation for an individual's labor. At that point it becomes the individual's money.
