    This isn't about Reagan, Bush 1, Clinton, or GW Bush, this is about your claim that the rich today aren't paying their fair share so what is that fair share? I don't recall Reagan ever using the phrase "fair share" but if he did I don't agree with it.

    The 'correct' quote is "everybody and every corporation pay their fair share". HE was NOT singling out corporations, as you would have us believe.

    NEXT.

    BTW, the clip you posted was from the signing speech for the Tax Reform Act.
    http://www.sweetspeeches.com/s/1218-...tax-reform-act
    It was primarily geared towards individuals, and designed to create a flatter tax system for said individuals. Corporations were barely mentioned.


    EDIT:

    BTW, you were one of the posters whining in here about videos edited to be false, misleading and manipulative :

    their fair share?

    you mean like ge?

    whose superstar accountant went on bended knee to CHARLIE RANGEL to get that extension

    and thereby (as well as by virtue of sending jobs offshore) ended up paying ZERO in 2011 taxes on 14.2B profits

    I don't understand what liberals hope to achieve with this 'He did it too' line of argument in just about everything debated today. Obama is a weak stick to the point of NOT having the 'Change' that he campaigned on, and NO ONE questioned him on in '08.

    If libs are holding out all these examples of past republican Presidents, saying that they took the right course of action, then doesn't that just destroy their own arguments, like how Bush ruined the economy?

    You are absolutely correct, in fact, Reagan cut taxes on the wealthy and cut corporate taxes in half.....while raising them on the middle and working class. I guess we all know too well what Reagan thought the "fair share" was.

    Didn't liberals claim that with Obama things would be different? Didn't they claim that Obama was going to solve the economic problems we were facing? Now they are claiming that Obama is just doing what Bush and Reagan did. Is that what liberals voted for?

    The first discusssion today needs to be why it is that 47% of Americans don't pay ANY taxes. That needs to change.

    Please cite for me any evidence that Reagan raised Federal Income Taxes on the middle and working class? I am waiting for what that fair share is for the rich to pay and for some liberal to explain to me why keeping more of what a liberal earns isn't an expense to the govt. since allowing the rich to keep more of what they earn is?
