    They never will answer that. what we get is that the rich can afford more taxes. I guess the difference between us and the statist tax hikers is that we operate from the position that taxes are at best-a necessary evil and any increase in taxes must be justified by strict and rigorous proof while people like Deuce operate on the philisophy that all wealth belongs to the government first and we have to prove that tax hikes are bad.

    The days of people that do not need it being able to live off our government for life via social programs are over in case you did not know.

    Giving people help so they can become productive members of our society is a good thing
    and subisidizing dependency on the government so those so addicted will generally vote for those who feed their habit is not a good thing.

    no one yet has been able to prove that the clinton tax hikes were responsible for that ephemeral period of prosperity that was based on the dot com bubble and the belt tightening that corporations undertook in the last year of the Bush I administration

    try again

    easy

    the first thing to do is to create a tax system where one group cannot vote up the rates of another group without paying more themselves. that would stop the pandering

    secondly, we need to stop economic incentives for irresponsible parents to continue to breed.

    third, those on the dole would be required to engage in public service-be it picking up trash on the highways or removing graffitti on buildings. yes there are some on the dole who cannot work but there are plenty who can. As a Young attorney I spent alot of time in "Room A" (arraignments) of the county courthouse and I saw lines of those on PA charged with all sorts of crimes. If you are fit enough to rob a hot dog stand operator or jack some guy's car you are fit enough to do some manual labor

    Refresh our memory. Or, just admit that none of you have a clue.

    from Turtle on his program to stop the 47% from taking his treasure and Picasso's off the marble walls

    the first thing to do is to create a tax system where one group cannot vote up the rates of another group without paying more themselves. that would stop the pandering
    Okay - lets do just that and call your bluff. We raise taxes on everyone in the tradition and spirit of our progressive tax system. Okay with you since its your idea in the first place?



    secondly, we need to stop economic incentives for irresponsible parents to continue to breed.
    What does that mean? It is so vague as be meaningless without any actual detail.

    third, those on the dole would be required to engage in public service-be it picking up trash on the highways or removing graffitti on buildings. yes there are some on the dole who cannot work but there are plenty who can. As a Young attorney I spent alot of time in "Room A" (arraignments) of the county courthouse and I saw lines of those on PA charged with all sorts of crimes. If you are fit enough to rob a hot dog stand operator or jack some guy's car you are fit enough to do some manual labor
    I would support that and have no problem with it it it were properly set up, managed and run well.
