    Don't think Obama does, I know he does.

    Obama, 1998:

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Why is it that the wealthy always expect everything for free?

    Certainly not who you have been led to believe by your right-wing radio fools. Most of the income tax in this country is paid by the middle class. Guess again.

    ass usual you are drinking the left wing koolaid.
    It sure is fun proving you wrong.

    Who Pays the Most Income Tax?



    According to the Office of Tax Analysis, the U.S. individual income tax is "highly progressive," with a small group of higher-income taxpayers paying most of the individual income taxes each year.

    Of course he wants to redistribute wealth...just as Reagan wanted to redistribute the wealth of the nation. It seems as if you're problem isn't the redistribution of wealth as much as the direction of the redistribution.

    A progressive tax system and wealth redistribution are different things though.

    I think the idea of a progressive tax system is silly but a country can have one without the end goal being to take money from one group of people and give it to another. For all the talk about Republican "extremism" in the news, Democrats have certainly left the concepts of "ask not what your country can do for you" and "workfare" for "where is my!@#$ing money?!" and "I have a right not to work!" awfully fast.

    That's just not even remotely true and I just don't understand how this myth persists.

    Yes....it IS progressive NP....however, most of the wealthy are able to avoid paying taxes in the same manner than Romney has, by offshore accounts in the Cayman islands and Swiss bank accounts. They also manipulate the system with all kinds of write offs, most which the middle class cannot take advantage of.
