    that is as silly as saying Jim Crow laws aren't bad because we once had slavery

    are you willing to pay 40 cents of every next dollar you make to federal income tax? 91%

    If you aren't willing to pay the same rates as those you want to soak you have no right to demand others pay more

    You benefit more from tax dollars than I do, so you get to pay more.

    1) what stupidity

    you cannot prove that and even if there was a flat tax I'd pay far more than I use

    2) the middle class uses far more direct government benefits (ie the stuff that would get cut back if we shrunk government spending) that the rich do but the rich pay more taxes than the far bigger middle class

    rich people tend to be mobile-the middle class less so

    so tell me-what exact extra direct governmental benefits do I get for my direct extra tax payments?

    Oops, I was mistaken. The tax I was thinking of is actually 20%. So, when do we ride off to rescue the starving millionaires and billionaires who pay it?

    Always.
    You do understand the difference between capital gains tax and income tax. Yes?

    What do you think the capital gains tax should be? 20% is plenty high enough.

    It's the same thing with the tax cuts. Things were bad due to cirucumstances outside of the tax cuts, if not for the tax cuts, things would have most likely been worse.

    the wealth stealers and libs don't operate under the same ideals as we do. We look at tax cuts as the government being able to waste less of what is our etc. Many of the libs see tax cuts as hurting "social justice" and while they want to talk in end game economic effect, the reality is they want punitive taxes to afflict the comfortable.

    Nonsense. It is only going back to where we were, which was no where near the highest rates we've seen in this country. And in no way does it compare, in anyway, with Jim Crow laws.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
