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
You aren't paying 35% on your income
You aren't paying 2 million a year in federal income taxes
I pay an effective rate higher than you do
indeed, most of the top one percent-those of us making between 350K to 5 Million pay the highest effective rate of any group. True billionaires pay a lower effective rate due to the fact that most of them have a far higher proportion of income from investments. But they pay the same rate I do on LIKE income
the top one percent pay 40% of the income tax burden. We only make 22% of the income and you have the unmitigated gall to claim that isn't enough
The real rape comes from all the sloths who pay nothing and constantly vote for more and more spending that they aren't willing to pay for
actually they are paying more now, as a percentage of federal revenue than they ever have.they are paying less now than they ever did...
this is also incorrect. walmart, for example, pays big bucks, as does any other retailer. political favorites like G.E. can get away with zero, I suppose, but the fact remains that the US Corporate tax rate is the highest in the industrialized world.most big corps pay NOTHING zip zero
All I can say is that according to the IRS, you are factually incorrect. The CBO also thinks you are wrong. As does the non-partisan Tax Foundation. Now is when we find out if old dogs can learn new tricks, and whether or not you will be able to give up a piece of talking point demagoguery in the fact of contradicting evidence....the rich hide their money and pay almost nothing

Sorry clueless...Romny paid 13.7% on over 200 million and he hasnt declared other income as of yet and put in for an extension..
13.7% isnt anywhere near the 35% hes supposed to be paying and lets not forget all the corps that made in the billions and paid ZERO....you cant hide from facts all you can do is what you always do...whine
major fail on your case proving you are clueless about the tax code
If you are arguing that the rich ought to pay an effective rate of 35% on every dime of income no matter its source that is a philosophical argument on your part based on envy and spite with no support in the law
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Turtle all your repetitive talking points have no effect on us anymore...weve all heard them 2-3000 times....check this out...The tax rate is "SUPPOSED" to be 35% the top 10 corporations paid zero and none of them pay anywhere near 35% so why do they need a tax cut, greed is why.
Heres a plan for you....GOP and DEM sit down and hash out deficit reduction....and medicare reform in a bipartisan manner, change the tax code....take ALL tax cuts and loopholes off the rich and make tax havens outside of the country illegal....then if theres enough revenue coming in and debt reduction and the debt is dropping....THEN start dropping the tax rate....not when your taking from everyone else... The teaparty wants to take from everyone else and give to the 1% yeah ok...pfffffffffffffft.....they arent the only tax payers..
