    Re: What purpose did the tax cut for the wealthiest serve?

    The tax cuts for the rich gave them more money to use on Wall Street speculating on goods and products, forcing up the prices on life essential needs like gas and food. Life essential needs should not subject to speculators, if we want to see the economy ref up put the money that these blood suckers are draining from the consumer back into the hands of the consumer

    Uhhhh whats your point in this? Why would the US want to or have to equalize the MRI facilities even if we did have a public option?

    1) some rich would move assets off shore

    2) its unfair to the rich-now I realize you don't care about individual rights as long as interfering with them is for the greater good

    3) it causes everyone else to pretend that tax hikes on the rich will alleviate deficit problems so they continue to demand more spending

    what would happen if most of the middle class started paying for what they use? It would not be bad for society and it would stop runaway government

    They ALREADY do this.....

    Sooo the rich were severely oppressed from the late 1930's to the mid 80s? Their individual rights were being interfered? Im pretty sure that is not the case at all.

    3) it causes everyone else to pretend that tax hikes on the rich will alleviate deficit problems so they continue to demand more spending
    I believe that is your prediction of the future not a factual statement at all...

    what would happen if most of the middle class started paying for what they use? It would not be bad for society and it would stop runaway government
    Ummm we do........
    I forgot to you the "middle class" is just a bunch of "free loaders" who want to hoard everything and live of these awful social programs...

    You should take that up with an oil company or two that benefit handsomely from the tens of billions spent keeping the shipping lanes open and a reduced royalty rate on federal land.

    Great job! Really good way to think a post through and come back with some smart comments. When your down and out rely on personal attacks! Great job Turtle!
    Turtle i do, i pay 1.) Income tax. 2.) Taxes on everything i purchase.
    So by i wish the richest of the rich had a higher tax rate that means that i want "other to fund" my "needs and existence"? Im not connecting the dots...
