    So we can kill off the Pelosi Health Care plan and all those social spending programs that are driving the country into massive debt. I like it!

    the rich pay far more taxes than "their programs" cost. The poor and middle class handouts are not funded by the taxes from those who want them

    No.

    We really should have a flat rate. Better yet, take that suggestion that we give up on income tax and simply make a higher sales tax. We'd get the illegal immigrants to pay, too.

    Right, because the rich rightfully earn every dollar they got, they never exploited anyone to get that money, and there is no such thing as corporate welfare. Get real, Dude.

    Welcome to DB.

    Question. Did you know that if we switched from a national income tax to a national sales tax, nearly every one of us would have to pay more taxes, just to break even?

    ah the class envy argument the rich really didn't earn that money so stealing it is justified.

    perhaps the most pathetic of all the silly soak the rich nonsense

    since 51% pay no income tax and 95% pay less taxes than the top 5% of us good. Most of the people should pay more, they pay too little because we in the top 5% subsidize the low rates for the rest of you

    It's a good point, but consider who's buying the more expensive stuff.

    We arent in massive debt because we dont take in enough taxes...we are in massive debt because congress spends money like crack whores. We are in debt because 50% of the public pays ZERO in income tax and in fact gets free money via the EIC. We are in massive debt because there are far too many crippled and dependent little ****s in this country that insist the government needs to take care of them and incessantly whine and bitch and moan about how unfair the world is. Meanwhile people of every race and nationality come to this country legally or otherwise and manage to bust their ass and find success. You didnt fix ****...you are the illustration of the problem.
