    It's linear.

    Ok... that doesn't change anything though? You can interchange the words but the equation is still:

    income/revenue - expense/spending = profit/loss

    It's still linear. Get a graphing calculator.

    profit/loss

    So...the Gov should run a "profit"?

    The Gov creates nothing, it only takes

    Dude... what do you want to do with facts? You didn't do anything with the one's I gave you earlier except ignore them... are you just out to waste other people's time?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    You just want to play around with words?

    Ok, we can do this for a while until you figure it out. It's cool:

    income/revenue - expense/spending = profit (surplus) / loss (deficit)

    It's still linear. You can change the words around all you want. In fact, you can even switch the sides!

    income/revenue = profit (suprlus) / loss (deficit) + expense / spending

    Wow! It works both ways!

    Linear relationships are cool!

You keeping more of what you earn means less need for that liberal help and that drives liberals crazy.
    To clean up the mess from the last decade. Obama has proposed to cut spending by $100 billion a year and raise revenues. That's what is needed to reduce our debt. Who is the last GOP president to do that?

    I have no interest in tax increases, all I am saying is we should stop the tax breaks for the most wealthy so they once again pay their fair share, that together with spending cuts will enable us to finally reduce our debt.

    No need, I fully understand that spending is the problem......you see the Macro issue is NEVER bigger than the micro issue....one simply proves the other....Math maybe the only absolute we can hope for.

    Now...you do understand that the Gov cannot create wealth?

    Are you that naive that you believe corporations aren't people and aren't going to pass any tax increases on to their customers or their employees by not giving pay increases?

    Keep buying the rhetoric, how is that hope and change working out of you? You believe his 3.7 trillion dollar budget cuts spending 100 billion? The last Bush budget was 2.9 trillion. Looks to me like you need some math help.

    What is the fair share for the rich? As was stated here you really need to stop worrying about what someone else makes or pays in taxes and start worrying more about yourself and how your taxdollars are being wasted.

    From the IRS, apparently this isn't their fair share. Do you realize those evil rich people also pay state taxes?

    The top 1% of wage earners make 20% of all income and pay 38% of all taxes.
    The top 5% of wage earners make 34.7% of all income and pay 58.7% of all taxes.
    The top 10% of wage earners make 45.8% of all income and pay 69.9% of all taxes.

    The bottom 50% make 12.8% of all income and pay 2.7% of all taxes
