35% for the rich, that's all! In The Nederlands it`s around 50%, in France 41%. No wonder the country`s going down the drain and also because of people like Crakjakass.

@DJDoubleb, thanks for the kind words on my home page. Total bromance with you dude... without touching of course.
Economics. The gov'ment is broke and in debt. Where does it get money? Taxes. We are at a 50 year record low tax bracket so I`m okay with raising them AS LONG AS EVERYONE GETS TAXED not just the middle class AND IF THE STOP SPENDING.
If they can`t meet those two conditions we`re doomed anyway so keep you cash...you`ll need it.

I agree with Gerry that taxes should be raised, however the rich are already paying at 35%. That's pretty high. What are the Loopholes I keep hearing about? If it is the fact that Capital gains are only taxed at 15%, I disagree with closing them. Capital gains come from risking your money by investing it. We all have that option, and to risk it so that there can be more economic growth, should be rewarded. I think a flat tax or a consumption tax would be beneficial.
Oh, and Gerry, congrats on your marriage lasting almost 20 years. That is an accomplishment!

Gerry: What 'slid the economy into the toilet` were the greedy bankers that monetized mortgages into salable stocks and the democrats that pushed for 100% home ownership despite the regulators and auditors screaming that it was all going to collapse.
Perhaps you need a little recent history refresher.
