    I'm reading the thread, and so far all I see is partisan sniping. I guess I'm contributing to it with this post. Dang it!

    Really? Taxing the rich is called socialism? Please explain that to me. And don't the working poor and the middle class work their asses off as well? Let me answer that: Yep. American workers are consistently considered the hardest workers on the planet when you compare the amount of hours worked and the amount of time off we get.

    Don't crap on the middle class or the working poor. They have to wade through enough crap as it is.

    So you think billionaires should be forced to give their money to the govt. so the govt. can take their administrative costs and spend it where they deem necessary vs. spending it themselves on charities? Unrealized tax revenue? Just like you didn't watch the Obama speech you didn't read the Ryan Plan. Social spending belongs at the state and local levels, not the Federal Govt. what the hell does a bureacrat in D.C. know about a problem in say Boise, Idaho? Where did you learn it was the Federal Government's responsibility to solve local social problems?

    I asked you a question which you didn't answer, do you feel that keeping more of your own money is an expense to the govt?

    Every time a hear another piece of that speech, Obama really put Ryan in his place. The little newbie didn't have clue, I can't believe the GOP let his 'plan' see the light of day...

    Right, like any good liberal just kick the can down the road and never address the problems. Obviously nothing is going to change your mind so how about answering a question, what is it about the liberal ideology that creates such loyalty? Obviously it cannot be results.

    Maybe at some point we will figure out that our tax system doesn't work and come up with a better system that doesn't cause so much daily anxiety.

    I've advocated a use tax system that taxes all the foreign countries and everybody for the privilege of using our infrastructure that our grandparents built to sell your products to our wealthy population.

    Of course the link that you provided did not actually supply any hard data to suppor their assertion that the expiration of the tax cuts would cut the deficit by 75% - why am I not surprised?

    The fact that you think I'm a liberal only shows how far off to the right you are.

    Partisan Ideologues are bringing down the country.
