    That is not the top payers problem.

    No in your mind anything is an argument against minimum wage....and it is the taxpayers problem including me, I pay taxs it always was and it always will be our problem...this isnt biafra, somalia, or rwanda in my 64 yrs ive never witnessed americans allow other americans to suffer and die in the street.....the desire to have those with less suffer is a new phenomena predicated on teaparty thinking greedy callous individuals...who I predict will fail in the longrun.
    I would like to add that its not the Truly rich that do all the whining...its the people that have a few bucks that are doing all this whining....the buffets the Gates and others that have the big bucks arent doing all the whining.

    Ive been waiting for the "CONSERVATIVES" to start posting whiny threads about the dirtbag 10% of country not paying taxs and robbing them...Ohhh wait we already had the whiney they shouldnt get unemployment threads how could I have forgotten

    That was fun. I won't pay your bills, I see minimum wage as it actually is, so therefore I wish people to die. Great fun.

    You may not want them to die henrin but you certainly dont give a chit if they have food on the table...theres a minimum wage because there was unscrupulous dirtbags that worked people for just about nothing kind of like the employers that hire illegals for less than minimum wage because they know they cant complain......working for 7 bucks an hour today is working for nothing.

Congresspeople want to get reelected and itís only natural to keep your largest donors in mind when voting. This is not to say that they donít have a free will and opinions of their own, just saying that money talks in many situations.

    You are totally misrepresenting what he said. Are you that dense, or just being dishonest?

    again you make stupid generalizations. the vast majority of the "rich" be that a group that starts where the top tax rate starts (200K of income) or the top one percent (380k) of taxpayers do not have the power to Manipulate ANYTHING

    and your moronic charges that they got their wealth off the poor and middle class is just moronic. You don't seem to understand the concept of value provided and value received.

    you whine about capital gains based on your faith based belief that its wrong for the rich to have more of them than the poor.

    just about everyone who pays taxes pays lower rates on CG than on earned income

    If you care you can pay. I know what a hard concept. YOU paying for what YOU care about. What is the world coming to when YOU pay for what YOU want. I swear there is something horrible afoot.

    theres a minimum wage because there was unscrupulous dirtbags that worked people for just about nothing kind of like the employers that hire illegals for less than minimum wage because they know they cant complain
    They hire illegals because those people are out of the market of competitive worker wages. The minimum wage isn't even in the equation.

    ......working for 7 bucks an hour today is working for nothing.
    You keep just proving my point.
