You do realize that someone making over $379,150 a year pays 35% income tax rate? So the only reason Buffet pays less is because he intentionally worked the system, not because the government is refusing to tax him more.Now I'm sure that there may be some who do want to raise taxes for those making over $100,000, but there may also be those who want to raise taxes for those making over $1,000,000 a year, the so called "Buffet Rule," that even some millionaires endorse.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
WOW!!!!! The right wing is really scared of this movement. Now we get this manufactured "response".
I can hear Buffalo Springfield singing right now
Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Socialism??Originally Posted by Jambalaya
Socialism is where everybody shares in the ownership of production and distribution. This is a case of a free loader who thinks the current distribution is unfair. That's not Socialism. It's amazing how so many people who casually toss the word "Socialism" around, actually have little idea of what Socialism actually is.
