    and the tax breaks are set up for corporate farms , they should be used income level to distribute, no corporate farms. Fox crap news is by all studies the low man on the totem poll when it comes to lies. Well actually Rush is, he tell s the truth only 15% of the time.

    When you are wrong, you are really wrong.

    People sure do deserve to keep the money they work to earn. I am sure you think you deserve to keep the money you earn, don't you?

    Obnoxious, I'm not going to debate some small minded person who doesn't think there should be taxes, it makes all you people who hate American and government look lame.

    No it doesn't, seeing as you tried to attribute something that you possibly couldn't even know and decided on something that you made up in your own head. That right there shows you actually don't have anything to add to the conversation accept your own misconceptions about how life is in this country. Yes, there are those who are born into wealth. But they are just as much in trouble of losing it as any other.

    This same invers goes for those born into the lower class, who have just as much possibility to go up in the class order. So long as they are willing to work hard and achieve that live, they will most likely obtain it and not only for themselves. But most likely for their children as well.
    Why do they run?
    Because they have no choice son, such is the way of cowards.
    But even a cornered rat, with no choice, will fight.
    Yes my son, and that should tell you more than you need to know about the coward.

It forces everyone else to pay for the workers subsistence with tax dollars and that is ridiculous . Why should tax money be the way for a company to have a profit. I mean talks about welfare.
    envy sucks. and yes there would be a revolution if someone was idiotic enough to try to impose such a silly plan

    that is just beyond dishonest-it is downright silly. You are pretending that every person who makes more than you think is "fair" obtained the wealth out of the blue?

    why should Obama and Gore be worth over 100 million each when that wealth was directly based on their political offices. Why was Hillary being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to give speeches to Investment bankers? Those people are wear Jbander should be demanding increased taxation-not on people who actually created companies that created value and jobs

These wealthy pigs don't earn it, deserve it or need it. And all you suckers that's real capitalism.
    There's nothing fair about that... at all. People should keep what they earned because... they earned it. Why should freeloaders get wealth when they didnt earn it?

    The bulk of your comments are too hyperbolic for me to engage. Sorry for that, but I haven't the energy right now to address that many predicates that don't comport with reality.


    Red:
    So long as the redistribution you have in mind is limited to transferring income from taxpayers to governments so as to fund legislatively authorized programs, fine. Anything else, any subsequent distributions of tax dollars you would have the government undertake should, IMO, be authorized and undertaken under the auspices of any number of laws besides the tax code.

    One of the biggest problems with the tax code is that its been co-opted to perform a host of functions that have nothing to do with funding the government. If we/the US were to stop trying to make the tax code variously be "coach, disciplinarian, judge, jury, executioner and warden," it'd be very easy to have an equitably progressive tax code.
