    so you want a tax system that makes everyone suffer when the government spends more? guess what, the current system only guarantees more debt because it encourages more spending to buy votes

    squire, get back on topic. this isn't about supplying votes
    taxing the millionaires and billionaires will provide additional revenues to diminish the accumulated national deficit

    how is raising taxes on only the rich going to provide an incentive to the other 98% to reign in spending they don't have to pay for?

    that is stupid because it will encourage your dem masters to continue to spend massive amounts buying the votes of people like you

    the tax system you want provides NO INCENTIVE FOR THE MAJORITY OF VOTERS TO REJECT THE PANDERING and SPending

    Substantially all credible economists believe that a real deficit reduction program cannot be had without using all the tools in the toolbox: a mix of tax increases and across the board spending cuts, including defense cuts. Its naive to think you can quickly balance the budget by just cutting the programs the regressives hate.

    Let's see how the GOP is going to answer to their seniors...
    Answer to the seniors for what? You obviously haven't read the Ryan proposal. Nothing is going to change for anyone 55 or older.

    why do you engage in silly evasions of the point I made? taxing the rich more while encouraging your dem masters to spend far more to buy the votes of people like you will not reduce the deficit

    the only way to stop the massive deficit is to stop the pandering and spending and that won't happen by taxing a group that is going to start engaging in massive tax avoidance. the rich don't have enough money to keep up with the pandering people like you support

    only when politicians start losing elections by calling for more spending will this happen

    People vote for people who lower taxes. Read Jude Wanniski's Taxes and a Two-Santa Theory

    I want a responsible govt. that believes in the vision of our Founders and not one that takes from one class to give to another and one that promotes the nanny state. Democrats controlled the entire Congress and the WH. Did that bother you?
