    and truth be told, if a person makes a million a year, he's not going to miss 10k. he's not going to spend less.

    problem is, if a person makes a million a year he is already paying well over 10k. what the "tax the rich" crowd always fails to consider is this. If you continue to raise taxes on the wealthy, eventually they will say "**** it" and move somewhere else. they have the resources to do so. and then where does that leave us?? who are you going to tax then?

    why is it always "we need to increase revenue"???? whatever happen to "we need to spend less"????

    Congress is hooked on tax revenue. They will never spend less.

    Move somewhere else? where they gonna go? Here in the USA they have easy pickings, where else can they get that kind of action? Yeah, they may take home a little less, but they ain't about to move anywhere else...

    probably right, they will bitch and moan and then bend over and take it up the arse, just like the rest of us.

    Obama volunteered for it. He knew what he was doing, so whining about it is... childish.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    nobody likes taxes, but everybody likes the services they provide.

    unfortunately the problem is we never get both. we always get the bait and switch "if you pay more we will spend less and pay down the debt" but it always seems like there is some new entitlement program or bailout to throw money away on once we get hit with the increase.
