    its the middle class and lower class that vote for more and more spending because they don't pay their share of government spending

    the right is to keep what you earn-not to be given back what is yours

    those who pay more taxes ought to be given more government privileges or rights

    I paid more in taxes percentage wise than the millionairs that boast of paying 17%....If they think that they should be paying more, why don't they? I mean taxes are supposed to be voluntary right?

    30 million plus Americans out of work, millions of American jobs being sent over seas. American companies moving overseas producing a product with labor costs far below what any American worker would need just to survive. Where would you suggest that all of these unemployed Americans find jobs?

They care about no one except themselves.

    Unions and their membership will stop at nothing to get exactly what they want. Is there any stopping them? I don't know. But I now know that neither union officials nor their membership can be trusted to do anything that doesn't benefit themselves. They are selfish disloyal Americans who will do anything to get what they want -- including bleeding taxpayers dry.
    Thugs? They are only exercising their rightful control over their own money. After all, that is what the free market is all about. If you don't like something, you have every right to stop supporting it with YOUR OWN MONEY. Or would you have the government regulate them? If so, then that is quite a LIBERAL position to take.

    Just how do you CREATE DEBT by NOT TAXING? There is no Fluid movement of the economy one way or another when nothing is collected or SPENT. Therein lies the RUB. DEBT is created by SPENDING MORE THAN YOU TAKE IN. Basic Economics 101. Something is basically wrong with any government that collects 300 Billion per month yet still has a 14 Trillion dollar Federal Deficit. The problem is not TAXES but SPENDING. Right now, as we speak....every swinging DICK in these United States, Poor and Wealthy alike could be taxed at a 100% rate...and guess what? The budget would still not be compliant to a ZERO Balance.

    You made it sound as if I was taking money from the government. Unless my accountant somehow stole 200k from me last year, I don't believe I'm exactly getting government handouts.

    Congressional Record
    They most appreciate my ability to do simple arithmetic, and the numbers show your claim to be ludicrous.

    As icing for the cake, you provide as proof... a Senate debate transcript. May as well be a youtube video of something Tom Harkin said on Crossfire eight years ago.
