Why should taxes go up to pay for health care when UHC would be cheaper than what we have now?
See, I think we can do all of the things I want to do with the money we already take in. Flaw in the poll, I guess.
One of you will end up here next!
I already spend hundreds of dollars a year for worthy causes, most notably for extra curricular programs in schools, and donate money all the time to worthy causes of those who are in need (food, shelter, sickness, disaster relief, etc.).
So I guess my answer would be that I already do.

I'd rather donate my time and money directly, removing the costly overhead of the government, which reduces the value of the money from the get go.
A donation of time and labor is even better then money sometimes... it costs you nothing, gets the job done, keeps you fit and for those who need it, gives you that 'I've done the right thing' feeling.
Building block or stumbling block.... choose.
funny how all the rich Obama fans who claim they need to be taxed more never do that
Look at arch Obama slurper Warren Buffett. HE sets his salary so almost all of it is in lower taxed non earned income: most executives of his level have salaries in the 4-8 million dollar range but he pays himself only 100K so only that amount is subject to the higher rates
