Yes, but... not for some particular programs (please elaborate).
No. None. Not for anything at all.
Undecided. Convince me either way.
Thank you, Quazi!
To me this shows the extreme right perspective has moved closer to fascism than in our past.
Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
Actually, what I really said is that the 47% who aren't paying taxes aren't choosing not to. They can't. They would if they could. But they have so little that they need every penny of that to live at a standard we would consider the minimum acceptable. My point is that no one is being sneaky or malicious. People are working hard, and getting paid squat for it. While those who do not work hard are getting paid millions for helping no one but themselves.
Let me repeat this, because it bears repeating. Those who, by virtue of having such a low income that they do not qualify for the federal income tax, are not getting away with anything. They have so little that we don't take from them. You want them to pay taxes? Great. They want to pay taxes, too. Just pay them a decent wage, and allocate that tax money into places where it will improve their lot, so they will have income to tax. That's all there is to it.
The only ones who can pay taxes but don't are the ultra-rich. Everyone else is just broke.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
and I love how you try to cyberfellate FDR by calling him our "forefather" while ignoring the great men who penned the constitution.
you have no clue what fascism is-FDR was far closer to fascist (ask the Japanese Americans) than the "extreme right" which basically means anyone who opposes Obama care or tax hikes on those who already pay too much of the taxes
