    He owns a history book.

    And he drew a line in the sand.

    Let's see how the GOP is going to answer to their seniors...

    You are very optiimistic to think there will be no Democrats in Congress. Do you want to live in a one party state?

Tell me why the rich should pay more when 47% don't pay anything?


    The top 1% of wage earners make 20% of all income and pay 38% of all taxes.
    The top 5% of wage earners make 34.7% of all income and pay 58.7% of all taxes.
    The top 10% of wage earners make 45.8% of all income and pay 69.9% of all taxes.

    The bottom 50% make 12.8% of all income and pay 2.7% of all taxes.

    Currently approximately 47% of all Americans pay nothing and actually get money back making their tax rate negative.
    Gee, this post looks amazingly like post #62 in this thread.

    Please prove that I am jealous of anyone who makes more than me. Personally, I think I am more concerned about the nation's debt than you.

    over 100 posts and no one has yet to offer anything to show why Obama's proposal is not a sound one

    Actually, he's using Saul Alinsky's rule #5.

    RULE 5: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." There is no defense. It's irrational. It's infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

    ...but its the truth.... Bush delivered a running deficit of $1.2T annually... Obama has just failed to fix his mess.

    tell us PB-how is raising taxes on the rich going to change the behavior of the 95% who supply the votes for the big spending politicians

    that's rather silly. I'd love it if everytime some whiner complained about the rich, his boss would fire him. now that would be some class warfare I could really dig
