    Which would you rather have as income - 60% of $1,000,000 or 97% of $20,000?

    that is not relevant

    one someone has succeeded telling them they should be penalized and that is justified because they are still more successful than millions does not justify such parasitic behavior.

    Penalized? Bull****! You know full well you pass your taxes on to your clients just like any other business. Don't even bother to act like you actually suffer a loss.

    You don't really understand the source of all my income so you'd be better off not speculating. We need the government to take far far less from everyone and since the top 10% pay 70% of what is taken, that is where the diet needs to start

    It is illogical that you would support high taxes on the rich, since if you believe they 'pass on' the cost, that means whatever service or product they offer would cost more for the poor. Pretty much government just raising prices artificially.

    You think you would actually get paid more somehow if your taxes were lower?!? Then so much for this crap from the right about the market controlling wages. Obviously if the tax burden was lower, then lower wages would provide the employee with the same spending power. You wouldn't make more, your employer would pay less.

    In the end consumers/customers pay for all of it. DUH! What planet have you been living on - or have you just been lying to yourself all these years???

    The only thing consumers don't "pay for" is dividends and increases in stock value - in other words, capital gains. Companies decide how much of their profit is used to compensate their investors.

    Then why not explain how you support raising taxes in a manner that would actually effect the poor in the long run.
