    the rich pay as much taxes as you do on non progressive taxes and far more than you do on progressive taxes.

    tell me Dave why is it wrong if everyone pays the exact same tax bill since we all get essentially the same services

    I don't pay more for a Double Cheeseburger than you do, and I don't pay more for a ticket to see the Hobbit than you do

    As usual your oblique attack on what I am saying makes no sense. I tire of those who don't pay any income taxes whining that the rich need to "pay their fair share"

    objectively the term fair share is silly but the closest thing to defining "fair share" is to divide federal spending by the number of citizens and whatever that number is is a fair share of taxation. guess who is getting ripped off?

    and the current definition the Liar in chief uses is based purely on whoring for votes

    I listed a very specific group that tax payer dollars should pay for. You're vague. Make references to people getting things, which is unclear to me. And remember, the problem is not people quitting the work place, but the stagnation of employee wages, evading to more and more people below the line of paying taxes. The rising tide for the wealthy only raised the yachts, and not all boats. So, it is your vague inaccurate insult to what amounts to workers I take exception to.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The wealthy need more things protected by the military. They need more protection at the banks. They invest in paper and seldom do actual job creation, but need their investment protected and babysat by some gov't agency. They need their big industries protected by laws and gov't subsidy. Just a few examples. It's a Corporate owned gov't. Of the Corporation, By the corporation, For the corporation.

    that's silly, the military's costs are not increased by the amount of some rich guy's property

    I said that they pay PROPORTIONATELY less than lots of persons with lower income. Does the word have too many syllables for you? It is an exact word being misread by an inexact mind, or what? I think everyone should pay PROPORTIONATELY the same. If you own more, then it stands to reason those owned items will require more gov't service/s. That would be more gov't "bennies" to those that deserve them the least.

    That sounds like a wealthy "wellie", but when an oil platform in some gulf is attacked by some terrorist, the stockholders take it for granted that the military will defend their property.

    butthurt much? called you on your BS so now you resort to lame attempts at insult? you've whined for several posts that the rich don't pay the same % of their gross as you do...without providing one shred of proof to back it up.

    really? how does my 10 acres of vacant pasture require more gov't services than someone on welfare's section 8 housing? and, other than sucking up air and breeding...what have the trailer park and housing project residents done to "deserve" any gov't bennies at all?

    that is a silly attempt to justify others paying more than you do. the military has no duty to expend extra effort defending wealthy peoples' homes and the cost of the military has absolutely no relation with the cost of a house or a car

    except for the fact that the poor guy benefits from cheaper domestic oil more than the rich guy does.
