Liberals would raise Social Security tax for rich? What else is new? Actually if class warfare liberal thieves desire to go after rich people then sooner or later they come after everyone.
Useful idiots who cheer taxing on thinking they'll receive a dime of tax bounty are only fooling themselves because you ain't gettin' sht.

Centrists too.

The middle income group pays too much in taxes.
The wealthy pay too little.
The poor pay too little and have too little.

When has the Left ever heard of a tax they didn't like? Libs would boost taxes to 100% of all income, if they could.

Obviously the entire left are "centrists".

They kneel down behind their subversive kenyan communist messiah and plunge their faces directly into the center.

Is it any wonder that they're mostly brown?

• Exxon Mobile made billions in profits, and yet paid not one dime in federal income taxes in 2009.
• The 2005 energy bill had a little known provision, commonly called the Halliburton Loophole, which exempted natural gas drilling from the Clean Water Act. The result? Water so contaminated that you can light it on fire.
• Massey Energy was cited more than 2400 times for safety violations in their mines, but chose not to fix potentially lethal problems because watered-down penalties meant it was cheaper to simply keep paying the fines. This spring, 29 miners were killed in an underground explosion at a Massey mine in West Virginia.
• Michael Taylor was the FDA official who approved the use of Monsanto's Bovine Growth Hormone in dairy cows (even though it's banned in most countries and linked to cancer). After approving it, he left the FDA--to work for Monsanto. Until last year, when he moved back to the government--as President Obama's "Food Safety Czar." No joke.
• Internal Toyota documents outlines how the company was successful in limiting regulators actions in the recalls last year--saving themselves hundreds of million while the death toll continued to climb.
• GE and it's lobbyists - including 33 former government employees - have successfully lobbied Congress to override Defense Department requests to cancel a GE contract to work on a new engine for the strike fighter jet. GE will need $2.9 billion to finish the project.
• Top executives at 9 top banks including Citibank, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley paid themselves over $20 billion dollars in bonuses just weeks after tax payers bailed them out to the tune of 700 billion dollars.
• During the waning days of the Bush administration officials responded to a long-term lobbying campaign by pre-empting product liability lawsuits for dozens of whole industries. They bypassed congress entirely and rewrote rules ranging from seatbelt manufacturing regulations to prescription drug safety.
• Sunscreen manufacturers including Johnson & Johnson and Schering-Plough, in the interest of profits, are opposing an FDA proposal requiring full reporting on sunscreen labels. The New York Times just confirmed that current SPF ratings don't even measure sun rays that cause cancer.
• BP—a company with a record of 760 drilling safety and environmental violations—was granted safety waivers in order to operate the deepwater drilling rig that ultimately created the worst environmental disaster in US history.

..... public schools: tea turd kids attend private schools, tea turds don't need them, layoff teachers, close the schools down <----- give a tea turd a tax cut.

......... public healthcare insurance exchanges?? tea turds don't need them, they have private insurance, real caddilac plans! <--- deny coverage, give a tea turd a tax cut!

on and on and on, <--- it's real, no end in sight

..........until beggars in the street ruin tea turds daily life <---- tea turd call to city hall, if there still is one, "do something about these beggars, my little tea turds can't drive outside my gated community in our rolls royce with a beggar coming up to us!!!!"
