    Is that why poverty rates increased from 2000 to 2004? Be cause republicans "cared" so much?

    COmplete nonsense. "extra money"

    why don't you stop craving the wealth of others and take care of your own needs without demanding others pay for you

    Now there you go again promoting higher taxes without any understanding of human behavior. There are 16 million unemployed Americans today which again you ignore. If you don't put them back to work there is NO stable economy. You continue to believe you know how the rich react to higher taxes but of course do not. Where is your outrage over the 47% that don't pay any taxes with many of them in the 40-50k per year pay?

    Here is an article that I am sure you will ignore. If you want more revenue get it from those who don't pay any income taxes at all

    it goes hand and hand

    FOr a lib to assert that the government needs to take care of someone and run his life for him, they must also admit that the person has no personal responsibility. It comes from the malignant mindset that the liberal knows what is better for you than you yourself.

    so again, take from those who have nothing, so those who have everything can keep more of it? yeah, that makes sense

    you seem to miss the point

    why should I have to pay the load for others when all that does is to encourage them to vote for more and more taxes and more and more government spending

    what Benefits do I get FROM the GOVERNMENT by being taxed more and more?

    and why do you think I have a duty to pay for those who give me NOTHING in return

    for a centrist you sure sound like a welfare-socialist. IS Ted Strickland too conservative for you?
