I hate class envy and class warfare for political advantage.

It turns us into Sheep.

why would you tax the 50 million people that live below the poverty line. they already need social services and govt programs, and taking X% from them would do little for us and be very noticable to them. They said if you add up all the money and everything those 50 million people own, the total value is $250 billion. that would put a very small dent in our deficit.

I don't understand why a flat tax cant be accomplished. Is it because as the government is issuing themselves income increases they don`t want to pay more in taxes themselves?

@methelod

"I believe that the people who have earned their large fortunes (Most of the 1%) should be kept in the place of power because clearly they know how to work the system so they benefit."

So you want the people in charge of controlling you to look after their own interests, and not your interests?

I think you kiiiiiinda missed the point of that whole democracy thing we've been trying to have going for a while now.

@wake_n_bake: He's comparing "effective tax rate" on the one side with "actual taxes paid" (or something, he`s not that clear about it) on the other. Apples to Boston Terries, eh?

Smart I am, troll I do not.
