    But believe what you want. It really doesn't matter.

    Going back to a 4% higher tax rate is hardly confiscating all the wealth, but your description of it in that way does to serve as an example of the very whining I was talking about. Thanks for the illustration!

    What is it with with the illiteracy of the leftists? Are you a product of the Detroit education system with Otis Mathis in charge?

    I said ""The rich" don't have enough money to carry the country even if all their wealth is confiscated, even if all the assets of Fortune 500 companies were seized. It is still not enough".

    So if that is the case what difference does 4% make? None at all! Correct?

    It is spending that is the problem. Nobody can pay for all the spending. No one. Not "the rich", not anyone. Do you understand that?

    Thank you for clarifying your strawman! No one, let me repeat, no one has said the deficit can be fixed by only letting the tax cuts for the wealthy expire.

    However, letting the tax cuts for the wealthy expire will result in $11.6 million dollars an hour more entering the treasury so that it won't be necessary to cut back on benefits to our seniors.

    It can help repay the funds from SS that were taken to fight the unnecessary GOP war in Iraq.

    No, its all about paying SS back the money taken from it while the rich continued to enjoy their tax cuts.

    Are you sure it isn't the 47% who have the tax cuts? In fact my understanding is that they pay no taxes at all, that they are net takers.

    You can't tax something that isn't there.

    The income isn't there. Most of them are seniors and servicemen. Is that who you want to go after to protect your rich pal's from paying 4% more?

    Most of them are seniors and servicemen? Do you have a link for that?

    It is the old leftist story that unless the US continues to spend in excess of $1,000,000,000,000 every year of money it doesn't have then seniors and servicemen and women will be turned out on the streets.

    Instead of just printing money or shuffling money from one government department to another, why not raise the annual deficit to $3,000,000,000,000 or more? You know it's never going to be paid back anyway. Why not just go as far as you can and see what happens? You can call it the ongoing stimulus plan.
