    Like I promised, NP. Everytime I see you do this. I will bring attention to how dumb it makes you sound and how much of a hack it makes you look like:

Everytime you do it, it makes what you say sound STUPID. I've spent a lot of time on this site defending you. I have asked you to stop doing this and you have refused. That is the very definition of a partisan hack. You would prefer to attack those you oppose than listen to your friend and do the right thing. You don't care about anything except attacking others... even when I'VE asked you to stop. If that's the way you want it... so be it.

    That's simply ridiculous. Even a flat tax rate would have you paying more than the average voter if you make more than the average voter. You're not seriously advocating for everyone paying a flat dollar amount in taxes are you?

    they are already paying far more taxes than any objective definition of fair share

    we hire lawyers to do it.....lawyers have cash registers for hearts and their ethics are situational, depending on how much money they are offered. That is why so many gravitate to politics, to feel less dirty about what they do for money. Whores have better reputations than lawyers....

    How much would you "suffer" from an end to the tax cuts in your bracket? You could pay 80% of your income without changing one thing in your life.

    Making people like you suffer is almost impossible. Is that why suffering is so attractive to you? You are pretty transparent don't you think?

    I didn't vote in the poll because I think it is too limiting. It only speaks of the middle class and not the poor or the rich. The Bush tax cuts affect all classes. Now, if the poll was in reference to the total Bush tax cuts, then my answer would have been "no". I don't think now is the time to raise anybody's taxes.

    Do I think taxes will go up in January? It depends on who wins the Presidential election and whether the GOP take control of the Senate.
