    rich liberals will demand higher taxes when it sucks in people like you to support them. But oftentimes they call for higher taxes on OTHER rich people. LIke Warren BullFett who clamors for higher death taxes but won't give the government a single penny when he dies. Or the scummy kennedys-big fans of the death tax but the kennedy wealth is safe in a trust set up in FIJI
    It wouldn't help. All the wealthy should give more. Not just bill maher.

    why, so people like you can have more services that you don't have to pay for

    I see you have quickly jettisoned your claim about being wealthy

    what will we get in return for paying so much more than people like you?

    Which part? My first part was analyzing your comment. My second part was a statement of fact: Plenty of polls show that a significant number of rich Americans support liberal spending and tax policies.

    Another standard conservative canard from you too. The idea that rich people who support more taxes should sign a check to the IRS. I really don't care either way if it makes them look hypocritical or not, that's not a way to run a tax system, having a "optional" tax system.

    And again, you just reduce the argument to petty ad hominem, instead an argument contending with whether or not a positive economic benefit is achieved when money is transitioned to people who are far more likely to spend it in this consumer based economy (and I admit I phrased that in a biased way).

    I don't like liars. And when you contradict your own position, I don't need any additional proof. You called yourself a 99% to distinguish yourself from the top 1%. The top one percent are making about 375K a year. that's pretty well off but hardly rich

    your rants about the rich also demonstrate you weren't being truthful

    and you base that on what you want reality to be rather than any fact you have.

    Sounds like a good deal to me...even at twice the price.
    Would you accept a federal MW law that links a reduction in the "taxpayer burden" equal to the percentage of the MW increase? It sounds like you want a liberal dream of mandated minimum wage increases followed by a COLA increase in the "safety net" entitlement amounts. One must remember that only about 3% now earn the MW yet 15% receive "safety net" assistance.
