    the tax hikers never want to pay the same rates, let alone the same actual dollars

    Sorry to come late to the party, but has anyone considered that instead of taxing hard working Americans to death the government could try to curb it's wasteful spending and stop spending money it doesn't have?

    You are a freeloader compared to me-people like me help pay for some of your share
    Good then it should not be a problem for you when the tax breaks on the rich for investments and inheritance are eliminated. Without the working class, you would not have as much wealth to pay taxes on. I understand you feel entitled to continuing your temporary tax breaks, but this feeling will pass with time.

    That's what the rich thought when their taxes were lowered and the middle class taxes were increased under Reagan. Time to even things out now.

    you libs whine about "tax breaks" for the rich---until we pay the same rates of income tax as the rest of America your howlings are idiotic.

    the income tax was supposed to be temporary

    even would mean the top one percent would be paying one percent of the income tax

    Even would mean everyone has the same amount of money.
