    there should be no such thing as tax brackets. that encourages politicians to pander to the lower brackets by promising them more spending paid by increasing the rates on the top brackets
    and of course, your side never ever ever engages in such buying of votes do they? They are virtuous virgins who have many children but have never engaged in anything as icky as sexual intercourse.

    Your naiveté is rather humorous.

    Its different getting votes by saying you won't tax those who pay most of the taxes any more than promising those who don't pay their share of taxes that they will get more and more paid for by others

    naivete? that's funny. I don't need government taking care of me or requiring others to be taxed more to pay for what I need

    You still haven't figured out what are material facts.

    They are material. You just can't refute them so you evade them. Who do you think you are fooling anyway?

    facts cannot be refuted. faulty opinions based on them can be. You whine about the distribution of wealth but your opinions on that are not supported by facts.

    You want higher taxes on the rich. yet your call for higher brackets for the top income earners is an opinion that is not made "correct" by your rants or the facts you cite

    Right, we all see you have not refuted the facts.

    Yet to see any of these facts you keep trumpeting.

    I see others posting graphs, links, articles, quotes, etc...

    I have seen nothing from you except some references to some elusive and apparently super secret facts.

    You certainly have done nothing to support or justify your refutations of anything.

    Do those objections usually work for you in court? Or do you hear "OVERRULED" ... a lot!

    fact-the rich have x amount of money

    Opinion-that is bad

    the fact does not make the opinion more persuasive or "correct"

    fact-there are 6 tax brackets

    Opinion-we need more tax brackets

    How do you see the 85% of the country's wealth being owned by the super rich has helped the economy?
