    Henrin - still awaiting an actual answer from you about these all important and crucial "qualifiers" that are so crucial to your position on taxation.

    Makes perfect sense, the government is based on Capitaloism you get capital from taxes.

    If the majority of people have no or little income where do you get taxes from.

    If you think politicians are going to take a salary cut think again.
    If you think the Pentagon is taking less money for defence contracts and salaries think again .
    After that you got the lobbyist to deal with
    after that human rights.
    All cost money all from taxes., ya can't just keep printing money.

    The more people that are working the more taxes are going into the American government.
    If not the government will get their tax money in other areas like rich areas.
    Using logic give me one reason that business would want to create jobs here in america, the repubs can use lower corporate tax rates but that is nothing more then the same dog and pony show BS we have seen with the Bush tax cuts, employment as we knew it is gone from America, big business has no incentive to re-invest in America when they can build in China and other countries where labor costs are 1/10th what they pay here

    The only job growth we could see in America are jobs created by the government and we know that the republicans will fight that all the way to 2012, If you want America to survive vote out all of the republicans and demand that the government puts high enough import taxes on foreign made goods to create a competitive environment for American workers

    Yawn. most of those who are poor are poor not because of what others have done to them but rather what they have done or not done to/for themselves
