    Then putting Frank and Dodd (two that caused it) in charge of fixing it.
    now, now, we don't want to confuse anyone here those kind of issues. Remember Franks and Dodd are for the "little people."

    You're not well, are you.

    I'd ask you if you realize the reason jobs go overseas is not because the rich feel like ****ing America, but that it's the oppressive corporate taxes that force moves like that. I would ask, but you're just not capable of understanding something that basic.

    It is MUCH easier to spout talking points.

    I care about both. The deductions were increased as well. We are giving away more than a trillion dollars every decade in our tax cuts to the wealthy since 1981. If we still had the progressive tax system we would have trillions less in national debt.

    That's fine, but there's certainly wouldn't be designations such as capital gains. All income would be taxed. And there would be no tax shelters.

    I believe we went through that yesterday but you ignored the question again, do you realize those were projections and not actual dollars? How is allowing someone to keep more of what they earn an expense to the govt? You really are naive or is this an act? I posted how much the rich pay of the tax revenue, how much should they pay since the top 10% pay 70% of all tax revenue? Where is your outrage against the 47% that don't pay any federal income taxes?

    I don't see that as a problem, all costs are just passed on the the consumer.

    Adam Smith, the author of Weath Of Nations (1776), is considered the father of modern capitalism, do you think he would favor moving the manufacturing base off shore to escape taxes?????

    I'm not an economist, but I think I could agree to no tax shelters. Also, all income only taxed once so no death taxes.
