    These rich people who whine so much should leave. Hell they spend $300 dollars on just the socks they are wearing. Perhaps they should learn how to spend their money better so when tax season comes they will have the money to pay for it. I am also forgetting that the majority do have the money to pay for taxes AND still be able to spend hundreds on clothing. So really these people can leave because it will mean I will have a chance to take the place they left empty. And I will find my way around taxes or at least not complain so much.

    Corrected for accuracy.

    What really confuses me is when poor and middle class argue so viciously for the rich to get tax cuts.

    Probably because they understand basic economics.

    I very seriously dought that. I sometimes ask people complaining about taxes to explain how the tax brackets work. Nine out of ten have no clue. The ones who complain the most often understand it the least.

    Lithuania and Czech Republic has the most beautiful girls in the world. You will get a nice liberal greeting when you get there! But listen, if you are the type of conservative who believes in the "family values" scam you won't like European countries

    Maybe you could elaborate from your understanding. Please explain, with real numbers not just general theory, how tax breaks spur economic growth.

    Decreasing taxes does spur economic growth in some circumstances. But it's not a general panacea for economic woes.
    If the gov will get around to finding spending cuts to offset the tax breaks, the tax breaks could be made permanent.

    Why is it that neither party is trying to do find offsetting spending cuts?
    hmmm...
    I may be wrong.

    I didn't know there was only so many places for rich people in America. What a concept. Yea, rich people please take your money and leave so there will be a place for me to get rich.
    This is the problem with liberals. They have the mistaken idea that there are only so many pies and instead of baking their own they want slices of someone else's. They think they are entitled for some reason to steal from the baker while making no attempt to learn how to bake.
    Wealth is not something that there is only so much of so must be divided up to be fair. Make your own wealth. We must pay taxes, however it is very unfair to make certain people pay a higher percentage. The richer they are, the more they are going to pay anyway.
    Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.

    My goodness you really are stupid.

    I was being sarcastic first. But my post was telling the rich to quit their whining. But of course conservatives defend everything they are not like highly productive individuals like the rich make.
