    can you prove a link to validate that? and would you have a person making 25k a year pay the same % as a person making 250k a year, 0r 2.5MM a year?

    show me the math.

    It's not all that hard to be totally self sufficient. It just takes a larger than average amount of work ethic.

    Are you talking about those people who live in cabins and **** in pots? Or are you referring to some other form of self-sufficiency?

    Structural unemployment, monopolization, globalization, automation, alienation, exploitation...

    It would simply mean that more than just 2% of the wage earners in the country are paying taxes. No need to look at the math to know that that would be, more.

    it's the democratic congress's own fault. they should have not left the tax issue to the very last moment. if they would have acted at the beginning of year or even last year, i think they would have had a very good chance of only extending the tax cuts for those earning under 250,000 and leaving those for the so-called rich to expire.

    the sad thing is the democrats left reid and pelosi in their leadership spots.

    How the hell is turtledude a creep or a thieve? In this country, most of the people who have made a large amount of money have worked hard to get to that point. They did not steal from anyone to get there.
