    Isn't there a post already on DP, saying the government doesn't have a revenue problem, but it has a spending problem. Donating money to the government is only going to make the government spending problem even worse.

    Yes, and the left leaning types are posting up a storm about the usual things like: class warfare, ugly rich people, they wouldn't miss it; the right leaning types are sticking to spending within our means, cutting back, less government... and never the twain shall meet.
    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.

    Lots of people volunteer to pay extra state and local taxes every day. If you've ever bought a lottery ticket, you've volunteered to pay an extra tax.

    True, though there's one difference.... just giving a gift to government assures a 100.00% chance you will NOT receive any of that money in return. By buying a lottery ticket it assures a 99.99% change you will NOT receive any money in return (depending on what lottery you play, it only goes higher from there). A .01% chance on a rub off say, is better than 0.0% chance.

    The wealthy, by and large, don't provide jobs; they invest in business and business provides jobs. We would do far, far more good by cutting-- and eventually abolishing-- taxes on businesses than cutting taxes on the wealthy.
