    So you want to take 80% of the earnings of anyone earning $200k and over?

    So a person makes $200,000 in income you want them to pay $160,000 in tax? Why would they make that when they can just make $40,000 and get money from the goverment to boot?

    Over $200k makes $3.125 T per year. Taxed 80% fixes USA.

    Its perfectly reasonable for them to take 80% of the revenue from my work.........
    I didn't see this before my last post. There's nothing reasonable about it, because you know why? It's not the government's money. If the govt is not going to let me keep any more than 40 grand a year anyway, what's the incentive to ever go to college or get into a higher earning profession? You're views are truly scary.

    And there's no copy of the email. Sounds like a pundit lie. Smells like it. Is reacted by others like it.

    Where's the email?

    Do you think the lean of the publication takes away from the statement from the professor...whom Obama is inaccurately quoting? I mean...dude...a Princeton economist is telling you that Obama is misrepresenting his own study. It doesn't matter if it was reported by the Weekly Standard or ABC.

    What email are you talking about? The one the Professor sent to Weekly Standard? It's quoted in the article. Or, do you believe Weekly Standard put that guy's name to what they say is his email? And it's not his?

    Come on, dude...you can do better than this, eh?

    the idea that one professor gives his opinion is going to destroy this valid line of attack is simply absurd.

    That is a REAL plan for USA.

    We have had enough of gov used to soak the poor and print money for the Rich via the MIC.
    It'll work...if it actually yields more tax revenue.

    Taxing an income group at 80% will probably result in one of two things: 1) they will do a better job of hiding their money and/or 2) It will demotivate people to make that much money.

    A better plan would be to get the hell out of the way of the private sector, let them make more money that will be taxed at the current rate. That's a 100% fool-proof way to create more tax revenue.

    So, those economists that say Obama's stimulus plan was a goo idea are full of poo-poo?

    My boss would be paying me a helluva lot of per diem, so my reportable income would be below the 200 grand mark.

    Or, pay me about 50 grand a year in Wal-Mart gift cards.
