    So the rich can fund the liberal spending appetite in your world? There isn't enough revenue available from the rich if you took it all to affect the debt.

    Except that terrorist attacks almost always lead to a boost in the popularity of the leader... That's what bush did, he would talk (or his people would talk) about all sorts of terrorist threats at politically useful times.

    So, you don't want them to pay any taxes at all? Just working folk. I see.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    there's not enough money in the solar system to make whole our big 3 federal social programs

    if budget reform is not undertaken now, then social security, medicare and medicaid (as well as state pensions) simply will cease to exist in their present form

    it's been two years since the party in power produced a budget

    leadership, anyone?

    You certainly have a problem with certain economic classes keeping more of what they earn. What do you think the rich should pay in taxes and why? I keep hearing about the rich paying their "fair share" so define fair share?

    no matter what the rich pay it can't come close to making whole our big 3 federal social programs, nor our suffocating state pension systems

    there's just not enough rich in the milky way

    if social security, medicare and medicaid are not fudamentally restructured now, they will disappear in their current constructs

    and two years farther down the road the party in power has STILL failed to itemize its answer

    it is what it is---math

    leadership, anyone?

    Notice how liberals never define what the fair share is for the rich? They know there isn't enough money from that so called "fair share" to generate the revenue required to fund their social spending so they just want the issue instead of offering numbers.

    When Predisdent Reagan raised taxes on corporations he talked about "fair share." What did he mean by that?
