    addicting people to government provided dependency doesn't make them prosperous either-in fact it prevents them from competing which is why people like Buffett support such nonsense

    1- like nobody ever died in a war about capitalism
    2- sure it does if you use the money to educate and empower people

    Wrong again, Turtle. What Mr.Buffet actually said about his plan is “If anything, taxes for the lower and middle class and maybe even the upper middle class should even probably be cut further,” .. “But I think that people at the high end -- people like myself -- should be paying a lot more in taxes. We have it better than we’ve ever had it.”

    A good editor might have chopped off the last three words of your statement.

    educating and empowering people is the last thing liberal elites want to do. It would make those elites unneccesary

    Now I would think if I were a Democrat or Republican, I would listen to one of the richest men in the world that made most of his money just by figuring out ways to push money around in the right direction. I dunno, that's just me.
    In other news.....water is wet!

    Trickle down economics has never worked...and the Republicans know it as well. Its just a way of handing more money to the wealthiest corporations without the people of America crying out too much.
