    And if you want people who work to keep more of their money, you would be wise not to support the democrats who just went to the right of the GOP trying to stop them to raise taxes on every single person in America who has a job under the Orwellian guise of soaking the rich. Eventually folks will figure out that the dems are much more shady than the GOP when it comes to misdirection. The ignorance of apologists is their bliss. The waitress who is working two jobs will now be paying more to support those who do nothing and will have less for herself as a result. The top rates don't matter to the ubber wealthy as much as democrats seem to think it does.

    Yes, EVERY rich person is a manipulative CEO that makes money by shifting jobs over seas. Do you have any idea how few people that actually applies to? You're trying to group everyone in a wealth class into a neat little stereotype that you can throw rocks at.

    Inequality exists. Examples abound. But to take a 'blame the rich' approach to every one of society's ills is a little simplistic.

    its like the parasite advocates claiming that every heir is like Paris HIlton or every investor is another Bernie Madoff. They make these stereotypes in order to justify their own greed and coveting the wealth of others. they want to pretend that the rich are like the Sheriff of Nottingham and they are wearing green tights surrounded by Merry men!

    Yes but it was a democratic President--Bill Clinton--who opened the door to encourage the outflow of blue-collar jobs--and it is the democrat Bubba Obama who is investing billions of dollars in new technology to kill more American jobs like in the coal industry. Just keep believing that the GOP is the one that is destroying the economy and blame the evil CEO's while re-electing the folks who are widening that gap.

    Re: Is it unreasonable for the wealthiest to pay a little more?

    This is a no brainer, the very richest have had their taxs cut fully in half since Reagan from 70% to 35%. The rich and corporations never paid the percentage amount anyway.Loopholes and off shore and tax coverups and phanthom this and that has made them enjoy ridiculously low taxs and many times enjoy paying zero taxs. Its absurd that a person has hundreds of millions and makes millions in investments pays hardly nothing...income is income.
    Sending any decent jobs to china and the philipines has made them far richer while the poor ranks grew and the middle class shrank downwards...its more than reasonable for them and ME to pay more

    We dont need more revenue we just need to cut spending. Washington needs to live in the real world like the rest of us.

    Fairness over greed.
    The Bush tax cuts should never have been allowed.
    I do agree that spending is out of hand...this applies to both private and public sectors, in a great many areas.
    Salaries to "bosses" - way out of hand...
    Truth over propaganda.
    So he pays more and that pisses you off?

    Seems your the greedy one here

    And yet pay a higher percentage than ever. No brainer indeed.
