    Americans are like a "stump broke mare"---we have allowed our selves to be taxed into the poor house for so long, we back up for more.

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Neither! It is better to have low tax RATES so that private enterprise is not burdened and punished for being productive.

    How much tax revenues are pulled in is a different matter entirely. Revenues should only match spending. That can be accomplished at any level of revenues.

    It is the RATE at which we are taxed that matters.

    I do enjoy watching hypocrites only discuss income tax. How about someone find a tax that the poor only pay and then complain the poor are getting screwed because they pay 80% of this tax?

    How about you be honest and look at total federal liabilities?
    Maybe you could show us what taxes only the poor pay the majority of?

    You're about half way to redressing the [beyond] 'insufficient data' question of the OP.

    How about "Is it better to have a little money or alot?"

    Don't worry, Obama has a solution to this problem.

    Hmmmm? The High Tax statists are falling further behind in this poll. I guess they all must have fallen asleep during the class lesson about what made this country the greatest the world had ever seen?
