    I wonder how many would think that would be a good idea because all we do is give the rich too many benefits or tax breaks anyway.

    Quite a few want them to reject it.
    It's over-exagerrated by a longshot, there is no faction here. Keeping taxe rates the same just means we have to aim at solely on the budget, which no one really wants to do but, must happen.

    raising taxes would not change that. the dems would keep spending in order to get elected.

    true, but it's something that would further twist their arms.

    I think you mean the Republicans. They spend more than Democrats but just to different friends. And America is losing on this tax deal. Obama should NEVER have let Republicans put these tax gifts through! Its reckless spending that does NOTHING for the economy.

    1) gift? the rich after the Bush tax "cuts" are paying more of the income tax burden than any time in history because lots of people on the bottom dropped off the roles

    2) the problem is not with the rich or not taxing them enough. Its with the middle and lower classes who have been brainwashed into thinking that all deficit problems can be cured by making other people ("the rich") pay more taxes. Until the majority of americans have to pay and pay and pay, there will never be enough voters to put an end to the massive government expansion that started with the DEMOCRAT's NEW DEAL.

    THe Bush tax rates are NOT SPENDING.

    They are tax GIFTS. If America was a team the Republicans arent team players. Everything is always all for them and screw everyone else. They hide money and assets and cheat on their yearly taxes. And dont tell me they dont because I know a good deal of wealthy famlies that do. Its an unwritten rule! Or they pay huge bucks for a great tax guy that gets every loophole possible. Usually when all is done the IRS owes THEM money. SO dont give me this Boo-hoo-hoo cry baby story. Thats not EVERYONE mind you. Probably 40% - 65% of em.
    Either way... I say screw em! Just like they look at everyone BUT themselves and say screw em.
    We need Libertarians in the WH to call the shots and tell it the way it is.

    Its a flawed question...none of this matters. They can cut taxes completely or double them...it wont matter as long as congress still spends money like they are on crack. Adding more tax revenue wont decrease the budget deficit or national debt...it will just give those assholes more money to spend.
