    5% is acceptable to our system, so that leaves 5% are the newly unemployed.

    Why the elitest personal attack? A lot of times it is not based on productivity just short term gain for the company. It can be also that the company is shutting down the whole branch or the company itself goes out of business.

    I find this interesting. people are concerned when a small group of a few percentage points lose jobs but when 5% of the tax payers are to be hit with a tax increase people say its not all that important because so few people suffer a tax hike.

    Because when people lose their job it becomes hard to survive. Often times they can fall into poverty and have their houses foreclosed. When the top 5% of the rich get taxed, they barely notice.

    since you aren't in the top 5% where do you get off making such claims about what we notice or don't notice

    you seem to think that everyone making a few hundred k have expenses or obligations no higher than yours. If somone has 100K in disposable income after taxes etc and have 2 kids at Ivy league schools a 12,000 dollar tax increas is going to be a major pain.

    I know you think such a person ought to tell his kids to take student loans or drop out of Dartmouth and go to a community college

    since the rich already pay for far more than they use, they are the ones who should least face a tax increase.

    He said something like that. :-)

    If they take student loans with 100,000 disposable income they can pay it off easily in a few years. I don't feel any sympathy to those who have a 100,00 of DISPOSABLE income. Especially when so many barely get by at all.

    I know you think if there are poor people it is wrong for there to be very rich people. SInce I didn't make anyone poor I have no duty to pay for their problems.

    To better evaluate this situation, if you don't mind me asking, how did you get rich?

    Edit: This being because the majority of people who are in the top 5% do not get rich off of their own labor. This is true for all of the top 1%.

    since you posted an obvious falsehood, I will answer you when you actually are truthful

    the majority of millionaires are first generation. and who cares how they got rich. unless it was from criminal activity its really none of your concern. they don't owe you anything.
