    Could you provide sources please? Perhaps those in the upper brackets aren't paying their share of taxes, but are you referring to those in the lower brackets?

    that is not accurate and you know it. A 3% increase in a tax rate-unless the rate is 100% results in a higher percentage increase in the marginal tax rate. In the case of 36% to 39.6%3.9% increase is more than a 10% increase

    and you willfully ignore that Obama wanted dividend income tax rates to go from 15% to 39.6% do the math

    is it your position that 47% of the USA is poor using whatever government labels you want? I suspect you have never been to south america, east asia or sub saharan africa but you really have no clue how well off our "poor" are compared to most of the rest of the world

    I thought you socialists claim corporations are not persons. dividend recipients are paying taxes on their income-and those who work for those corporations are paying taxes on their income so you are lying. Corporations don't pay income taxes they pay corporate profit taxes.

    that last comment is really stupid. You cannot prove it and your parroting other posters is a clear sign we are dealing with a kid.

    The war on poverty has cost more than any war that has taken place since the W on P began and has created a dependent class and has not changed the percentages of people in poverty

    Hogwash, poverty rates have declined under various administrations.

    So your ideal situation would be to have our poorest citizens poorer ... like those of your beloved "south america, east asia or sub saharan africa" ... ? I am trying to understand what moral code would support poverty, no matter how severe, while only a handful of people own the world's wealth. Please give me a moral argument that would support that ... I've been waiting to hear one from you for a while now.
