    Nice opinion of yours as to who does and doesn't pay to much in taxes. It means diddly squat to me though.



    Oh you mean the guys like Warren Buffet paying what....17% vs his secretary that pays 30% or something like that......
    i guess you cannot understand the fact that different sorts of income is taxed differently and Buffett structures his compensation so his salary is artificially low

    yet he pays more taxes than 60 million americans combined- and you whine he ought to pay more.

    And you obviously don't understand the marginal value.

    I certainly understand taxes far more than you do. Why should Buffett pay even more than 60 million who don't pay anything? Buffett makes a lot of money because he provides much value. He benefits society immensely. Many of those on the public dole are a drag on society and their existence imposes costs on others

    About all you have here is some purely opinionated ideological garbage that at best is sophomoric.

    In a word no.

    In many words, I dont want to pay for my enemies to live (national/universal/single payer health care), I dont want to pay for mindless bloodshed (current foreign policy and abortion), I'm tired of my money getting stolen and given to foreign nations under the bull**** premise of "foreign aid", Im tired of the welfare/warfare state and finally Im tired of the class warfare bull****.

    Again a purely construed opinion on your behalf with little or no basis in empirical fact in an attempt to appeal to emotion.

    your emotional bias to those who have done well permeates your post

    tell me why should those who make 22% of the income and pay 40% of the income tax and all the death tax pay even MORE of the income tax burden?

    First off there is no such thing as a death tax. Dead people can not pay taxes any more than they pay their bar tab.
