    It serves the wealthy. A part of class warfare.

    so unless the rich are taxed more and more and more it is class warfare? Class warfare is when one class is taxed too much. that is currently the rich-with or without tax cuts

    which is an appeal to class warfare. vote for us-we will tax the rich more so you can have goodies and don't have to pay for them

    most of the justifications spewed by dems for the PIT is based on the specious and dishonest claim that the rich don't pay enough or that a flat tax would be a "tax cut" for the rich (which again appeals to class warfare)

    claiming to be a democratic socialist really is an admission you want to wage class warfare

    and "vote for us, we'll keep you rich people from paying more taxes" is not class warfare? c'mon td, what's the difference?

    Lets see

    Its not class warfare to object to being taxed more so that what you earn is taken from you

    it is class warfare to claim others need to have more of what they earned taken from them because

    1) they don't deserve the wealth

    2) others deserve it more

    I don't need to attack anyone to justify only paying for what I use. Its very difficult to justify income redistribution without attacking those you want to loot

    I can answer that with one word JOBS.
    More jobs working people pay more taxes leaving the rich to pay less, no working person is going to complain about that.

    As for wealth being taken from you corporations had no problem taking taxpayer dollars when bailouts were given out, nor do they have problems takeing no bid contracts or government grants.
    Money is money wether it's from the SS fund or state and local. or paychecks.
    Corporations has done their fare share of taking from American woking taxes.
