    So how does the economy work? And exactly how does one create jobs?

    Nobody disagrees with the fact that money is wasted by government. Why should wasteful spending excuse you from paying taxes?

    Exactly raising taxes on all taxpayers or even on the rich always helps individuals create individual wealth, right? This is an act by you, isn't it?

    Why should it excuse 47% from paying income taxes? I understand the need for taxes but not enough to fund a 3.8 trillion dollar govt. which is a huge overreach from what our founders envisioned.

    Doesn't it bother you that many of the programs funded in that 3.8 trillion dollar budget are designed to "help" the 47% that don't pay any income taxes? think that was the intent of our Founders? Congressional social engineering and attempts to keep people from failing have led to the disaster we have right now.

    Of course not, but rather than putting the money into the mattresses of the wealthy, as we have for the last ten years we can redirect it into boosting a weak economy and maybe paying a few pennies off of the national debt. I realize it is foreign to your thought process to think of something beside yourself but that just might help the country that we all call home.

    So how many wealthy people do you know that put their money into a mattress? Think that sending more money to D.C. means Congress will use that money to pay down the debt? When has the Congress ever paid down any of the debt?

    Since when was income tax the only tax levied upon people? Only the truly dishonest restrict the discussion on inequality of taxes to just income ignoring every other tax, which in aggregate is more then income tax.
