    Where do you land

    So much talk about how the wealthy deserve this, and the rich need that. Where do you fall in all this?

    What happens to the wealthy tax base when states implement a massive tax hike on the wealthy? It disappears. They move.

    Let 'em go. It's not like they're contributing. I refuse to respond to fear tactics.

    Where do they move?

    If federal income tax rates are increased are they going to move to Mexico?

    And you say "massive tax hike" like everyone's talking about a massive tax hike or something.

    To be honest, without women most guys would be happy living in cardboard refrigerator boxes as long as we had a big screen with cable access to sports channels, war movies and good music; a refrigerator full of beer; and a big ass diesel powered pickup and bass boat parked right outside our cardboard boxes. And that's the honest truth. It is what it is.

    this country doesn't need tax hikes levied against any economic class. what it needs is for government
    to stop spending like a gold-digging whore using the sugar-daddy's platinum card.

    And I had to vote other. I make what I need to have the life I like and save for retirement and I don't know anyone who likes their job more than I do.
