Obama invests in tax, first the poor, now the rich. He is trying to cutback again on the poor, so he can increase the riches money, so after that, he can go back to the poor again with the excuse that the rich wasn't enough, so it doesn't look like he is just scrounging for tax. He also supports the PBS, which allows unmonitered material on television and onto our children, as well as having biased news articles unchecked. He is allowing the DREAM act bill, which allows illegal immigrant children to progress and take peoples jobs and damage america. He also allows murderous abortion, as well as condoms which is decreasing our population, as well as encouraging more teens to have sex and increasing teen pregnancy. He is also allowing gay marriage, which will turn children into sexual deviants and gay converts, as well as destroy the american family.

<quoted text> Your an idiot, honestly! How is it fair that a person making $30,000 a year pay the same tax rate as a person making 1,000,000 a year? You do know percentages don't you? You do realize instead of trying to bleed the middle class & poor, you should be thankful because the middle class is the motor that runs america. Did I mention that your arguing nonsense being the people have spoken? 2/3 of americans agree on the 3.6% tax hike on the rich. Honestly, your worse than john boehner. Their job is to do the will of the people. Instead ya'll plan is to do what helps you all pockets. Ya'll became accustom to shitting on the lower classes & finally someone with common sense was elected & decided this country needed change. Now look at ya'll, all rosy in the cheeks! Obama was re elected. THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN! Stop whining!
And here's some REALITY-
The taxation system was based on a system called the "honor" system, and raising the rates on the higher above table income earners won't be a drop in an eyedropper in a bucket full of water won't change, because ABOVE the tables WORKING class taxpayers are ALREADY the ones that PAY their fair share. People paying taxes out of loyalty and honor is almost obsolete anymore, due to unconstrained abuses of the many loopholes, credits--AND neglect by many who never even bothered at all to contribute anything.

REAL honor can NOT be bought OR purchased, it is NOT something that others "owe" to others...it has to be EARNED, and these days...people would rather take, take, take..many of whom are CLUELESS, that all their UNearned entitleMENTAL taking as well, has now DEPLETED this nation to near dry.

The ONLY thing that will amount to anything is CAPPING and CURBING corporate, financial market AND givverment welfare, and/or FLAT federal sales taxing EVERYONE across the boards, and to think anything else would is just ignorance.

Hense WHY the voices of the REAL AMERICA have risen a few decibels in the past few years.

The republicans voted the majority for Obamas latest policy. But what policy was that? His only good policy, cutting taxes with the poor and increasing it on the rich. The republicans in congress will not vote for Obamas other policies at all.

and 3/4 of those 2/3 have their heads stuck in sand dunes of major proportions of denial,as to the REAL issues facing America these days.

Like 2:1 contributors contributing to the economic revenue backbone of this nation--DOWN, Down, down, from FIFTEEN to one (15:1) in just thirty years time.

One thing I still don't understand from all you anti-tax Repubs is that for 10 years now the tax rates on everyone has been the lowest in US history. 10 YEARS!!!!!! To hear you all it sounds like we are back in the Reagan years when the highest tax rate was 50%.
