    That's the thing: in our country, working hard isn't necessarily enough to get you through. When people are coming out of college with a heap of debt and are unable to find a job that's any better than serving coffee, you have a problem. You can ignore them, you can dismiss them, you can mock them, you can even say its their fault for somehow not being competitive enough in the job marketplace, but the thing is that there's a lot of them, and they're upset that they can't just work harder. In any other country, that would lead to a revolution. In America, well we'll see

It has nothing to do with wanting a free ride, suckling the government teat or any of the other nonsense several posters try to say is behind every people who favors this.
    You believe in using the tax code to force other people to behave in a way you want which is why I want everyone to pay taxes to force those who want to freeload to face increased costs when they vote for more government.

    Actually as someone who understands investment-if you raise taxes on people like me we invest it in areas where it won't get taxed as much or we stop spending as much which hurts people who depend on our spending

    we tend to be much smarter about this than those of you who don't have much investment income

    I think that's effectively what she's saying: if you tax them more, they'll invest more into their business in ways that help the economy.

    Also, what did you do to earn your wealth?

    You do realize that at this point, 80% of the people are fighting over what can only be called "scraps" when contrasted to that years "carcass".

    I have no clue what your perspective is

    I guess you don't realize that you are agreeing with him in that if you raise taxes on the wealthy then you get much more reinvestment in the businesses they own rather than doling it out in executive paychecks where it'd be taxed more.

    The are headed into a situation they will never win.

    Most of them can't even articulate why they are there or what they want.

    They are products of Obama's class Warfare messages.


    This will end in disaster and they will cause it because they are stupid spoiled idiots, who need to get a job sit down and shut the hell up.

    ... of how much you hate a huge swath of Americans. Yes. It was very honest.
