    I think it's a sad commentary about our concept of government, that a question like this is even being asked.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    the parasite support team has to find ways to hide their real motivations for taxing the rich even more. They do this by pretending that the one percent that pays 40% of the income tax and all the surcharge on wealth called the death or estate taxes use more than 40% of the government services.

    Your own side has proven that the rich don't benefit much from government. If they did, your dear leader would have noted that everyone will sacrifice due to cuts to government programs.

    You have a Red stain on your upper lip from something.

    I guess you get extra points for being a Liberal Without a Clue.
    How in the hell can the top 10% pay a smaller percent of their income than those in the lowest 50%, those you talked about pay nothing at all?

    You have to stop listening to Obama he's playing divide and conquer. What I think is truly funny is Obama is rich, and I don't see him donating anything to the treasury,or refusing to use deductions on his tax forms.

    Try reading what I actually said and try again.


    While you are at it review these facts: "The top marginal income tax rates were lower between 1988 and 1992 than they are today, but otherwise, Obama is right. They were higher for the other years. Meanwhile, the rates that are used to tax carried interest for hedge-fund managers have been at historical lows since 2003. And effective tax rates for high-income earners were either at their lowest since 1960 or very close to their lowest (at least according to the most recent data available). On balance, we rate Obama’s statement Mostly True."

    yet the rich pay more of the income tax burden now than they did at any other time since the FDR nonsnese. what does that mean? it means everyone else is paying a lot less too
