Yes. I'm a greedy bastard!! I need MORE!!!
No. There's comes a point in wealthiness where it just doesn't even matter anymore.
I'm not sure.
The rich are making money not by working harder than in the past, but by harnessing cheap labor overseas and increasing technology, at the expense of American workers and their wages. Then they howl at the government for redistributing a percentage of those gains back to those people. It's greed, pure and simple. If they want people to work to earn their money, they should stop firing them.

When I hear people complain that Romney is paying 14% rate and that makes them angry because they are paying 11% I think its fairly obvious Romney is not the greedy one.
A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject.
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
But, not shockingly, the administration and the Democrats focus is raising taxes with half hearted promises to cut spending later with the vast majority of their specifics for cutting spending being cuts from things that are inevitable to happen (war ending). Indeed, the President during his campaign was happy to say that we needed to stop spending money on Wars.........to instead spend it here. Key word, SPEND.
You could, naively, suggest that "they have to deal with taxes first, they're what's currently happening." This is nothing but a shell game however. There is NOTHING stopping them from extending all the tax cuts for another year or two years and then turning back around and passing a new bill later that raises the taxes on a particular bracket. Taxes don't HAVE to be dealt with first, in terms of raising them....it's just EASIER for them to do it now.
If we had a reasonable expectation that the either side would legitimately and seriously deal with the obscene amount of spending we're doing you'd likely find more people at least open to compromising on taxes. More so, if they actually were ENGAGING inthose serious and legitimate measures, you'd find even more willing.
Instead...all you see is obtuse notions that "spending needs to be looked at" while yelling "GREEDY GREEDY RICH! TAX THEM"
"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.
what a silly poll. why is it greedy for those who actually pay the lion's share of the taxes saying its time those who pay less than their fair share (i.e. the 95% who pay less than the top 5%) and yet are the ones who demand more and more and more government, and not greedy for everyone else to demand they keep their tax cuts (so they won't vote against the deems)
what stupid loaded questions
it is not necessary given all it does is encourage the middle and lower classes to demand more spending and more government. Obama kept howling that everyone should do their part to pay down the deficit-all that has been done is pander to the masses and tell them they are not going to have to do anything to pay down a deficit that is mainly caused by them
