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.

OldOllie -
"Anyone who thinks that if you raise taxes on employers, they will hire more people are too stupid to be allowed vote."

You mean like when Bill Clinton raised taxes and we experienced record booming economy, the defecit was paid down and social security had a surplus?

Yep... crappy economics. We were much better with George Bushs tax credits and sliding the economy into a toilet.

Taxing the rich would gain money, but it would also decrease jobs. I'm poor as crap, but I know taxing the rich is just a ploy - taxing them won't help, just make them do their taxes and don't give them 1,000 damn things to use as a write off.

A bogus analogy but powerful. We can all learn a lot from a motivated teabagger.

"Don't get high on your own supply".

Washington could learn a lot from the movie Scarface as well.

@ DJDoubleb - "help" from washington? How about, payback for paying taxes IN for 50 years....

oh, and I got married 19 years ago. No, it wasn't legal then, but it was everything in a marriage except the joint tax return so it's a "real" marriage as opposed to a "legeslated" one

Or, like a drug addict, you could steel from your grandmas purse.

My old retired mom-in-law just got notice her and her husbands medicaid copays go up $100 ea starting next month.

Way to go Washington!

Actually,the American public can learn a lot about Washington,D.C.-by learning about drug addicts.And narcissists.And congenital liars.
