    Alll good morally Christian answers - what did Jesus say about the rich passing through the eye of a needle again? Something about a camel wasnt it?

    The TOP 400 income earners in the USA take home about 300 million dollars per year EACH and pay about 18% tax.

    Thats about $144,000 per hour - Now what crucial work deserves that sort of renemeration? IS it more important than a scientist working on a cure for cancer? A US soldier putting his or her life on the line? A Doctor? etc

    The Minimum wage in the USA is barely above $7 per hour and still these elite Plutocrats think it is way too high and effecting their profit margins.

    Crush the middle class and totally obliterate the poor whilst serving these greedy socio paths that run businesses like a casino and have little regards to what damage they do socially and environmentally

    THis is what the fascist US Corpocracy represents - and why it needs a violent military based imperial foreign policy to survive.

    And there are many clown servant slaves that have taken the spin bait that this is really freedom and democracy

    George ORwell would be spinning in his casket

    (all good answers - lol)

    Dude it dont work that way. You've never been in business its plain to see. Not with large companies anyhow.

    The federal minimum wage would give a person $15,080 per year for a 40 hour week which is more than 133% of the poverty level for a single person and only $50 short of the poverty level for a 2 person household ( Federal Poverty Guidelines) and that is not the minimum wage in all states (U.S. Department of Labor - Wage and Hour Division (WHD) - Minimum Wage Laws in the States). I fail to see an argument that wages should be raised.

    I think we should cap house and congress pay, benefits, and limit term service to no more than a president(8 years).
    Serving in those places should be a chore not a perk.
    Thank you

    Re: Corporate Earnings

    Hard to believe my vote - placing me in the "super majority".
    But for those "earning" unlimited quantities of money , there should be a tax rate, without loopholes, of say 60%.. At one time (1949), this was 90% , but with holes King Kong could stroll through !
    Unfortunately, as long as its the wealthy who design the tax laws, the rich will NOT pay their "fair" share.
    Its not a good idea to limit anyones income, and we do need the uber-rich..to buy the first automobiles, the first VCRs, on and on..

    How is charging anyone a much higher tax rate than anyone else paying their "fair share"? What about the poor? They pay nothing. Is that their "fair share"?

    I think not.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You want to end the ability of private parties to negotiate employment contracts with corporations?

    Sure was. And what did Jesus say about judging others? Blanket judging, no less. You've managed to condemn an entire tax bracket to everlasting damnation, all by yourself! What incredible judicial powers you must have, your Worship!!

    Wrong question.

    Salary/compensation should be linked to performance. Hence the executives salary/compensation increases when the company does good, and decreases when it does not. Sadly this is not the reality of most companies these days.

    This is what DEMOCRATS VOTED FOR as did a majority of Americans.

    1. TOTAL OPPOSITION TO PUTTING ANY CAP ON THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF TAX DEDUCTIONS FOR THE RICH
    Obama and Democrats voted that the rich should have UNLIMITED tax deductions

    2. The 1200 WEALTHIEST CORPORTIONS exempt from ObamaCare tax - including WalMart whose heirs/owners have $20 BILLION DOLLARS EACH - while even their full time employees
    are paid wages below the poverty line.
    Democrats supported Obama in this regards.

    3. The tax cuts are NOT the "BUSH" tax cuts. Those expired. They are the Obama tax cuts. He endorsed them, urged Democrats in Congress to support them and he signed it into
    law

    4. For bailout money, Obama agreed the money could be used to pay massive bonuses to Executives and CEOs of those financial institutions.

    5. Under Obama, there were 1,100,000 MORE millionaires created.

    "The will of the people" and the "will of Obama and the Democrats." Unlimited exemptions from taxes irregardless of tax rates and massive welfare for the rich. This what people voted for so this is how it will remain and continue.
