It will hurt job creators
It will raise revenue and help the economy
It will promote laziness
It is the definition of socialism
It will help close the gap between the middle class and rich
It punishes the upper tier of social darwinism
Socking it to the rich might make people feel better and probably won't hurt the rich much but it will do nothing to fix our economy, obama is just in campaign mode, getting the troops fired up. Anyone ever notice how I never capitalize obama, I refuse to give him that much respect. I truly hate this man.
I am libertarian, which means that I don't have feelings.

with all those supposed loopholes (the biggest being people who pay NO FEDERAL INCOME TAXES have exactly the same vote as those who pay MILLIONS) how is it that a group that makes 22% of the income ends up paying almost 40% of the income tax and all of the federal death/estate taxes?
Everyone from Boehner to Obama, from Reid to Obumble's press secretary have admitted this proposal is DOA. So why is Obumble pushing for a vote other than to play class warfare?
