    Thats understandable, but there's no reason why the rich can't pay a little bit more than everyone else.

    you must not have spent much time at food shelters. half those people were dressed better and driving better vehicles than I was. when michele obama goes to work at a soup kitchen, all the "customers" take pictures of her... with their iPhones.

    I voted other. I don't believe in soaking the "rich". You'd have to raise the tax bracket to over 35% and I don't for one second believe that brackets wouldn't be raised on everyone.
    I love how, in scary movies, the person yells out, "Hello?" As if the bad guy is gonna be like, "Yeah, I'm in the kitchen! Want a sandwich?"

    I think the brackets HAVE to be raised on everyone! There aren't enough rich people to pay for everything Obama wants. That kind of money can only come from the great middle class masses. Those who aren't paying anything will have to chip in a few bucks. Those who are paying will have to pay a few percent more.

    And there's no reason why they ought to.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Can everyone please shut the hell up about "hedge fund managers" and what-not. If you just want to put your foot on the neck of the stock market, just have them tax capital gains as income.

    I'm tired of seeing it over 7K anyway. Let's just dry up the accumulation of reinvested wealth.

    That'll show that blood sucking "hedge fund managers".
