    If you want to continue to donate to millionaires, then you can send in more money. They'll take, just like they've been taking it each year since 2003.
    How are the middle class picking up the millionaire's share of the taxes, when they already pay more than they do, both %wise and in absolute dollars?

    I paid over 200k in FIC last year. How am I "taking" from the government?

    So you disagree with Obama then that the rich is comprised of those making over $250K per year?

    So you conclude that NOT TAKING by threat of fine or imprisonment MORE MONEY from successful people in order to give to those who were not successful...is a GIFT and YOU and I are giving these successful people SOMETHING? Really? Seems kind'a MARXIST to me..just say'n how is not strong arming someone and taking their wealth away from them....A GIFT from YOU? Did you EARN any of that Wealth to have a say as to how best to use it? And how do you justify this WEALTH REDISTRIBUTION and make it compliant with Article One Section Eight and its mandate of uniformity in relation to all LEVIES? Where do you get the authority to TAX some people a higher percentage of their wealth based upon their SOCIAL STATUS?

    Do the middle class not share in the debt created by the unfunded tax cuts to those making over $1 million a year?

    You seem to be under the impression that the $93,000 tax break on average given to those who make more than $1 million is some kind of a right, rather than a temporary tax break provided that it is.
