It would be interesting to see how many millionaires/billionaires we have here. For those of you who say others are not paying anything, how much do you pay? Are you business owners and how many do you employ?

That's it, I want to be a machinist. I'm willing to work hard. Do I go to trade school for training or what? Thanks.

Not really. It's 30%. That's about right.
Most of us in the lower tax bracket pay about 20%.... without deductions, of course.

I agree.....way to much. But all the democrats think its not enough. I guess more Urban public housing users or country white trash need more welfare and newer Obama phones.

Nope. That's more like 34% closer to 35. More than enough already without taxes being raised.

Yeah, you're right. Taxes should not be raised on the wealthy either. Successful people should not be penalized with higher taxes to make up for the "takers". Democrats should focus on Medicaid & food stamps.
Too much fraud going on in these entitlements.

When we slide off the cliff? That's funny. 2001-2008 Remember? Republican George Bush started 2 wars and put them on the credit card! Is it coming back to you now. Then he lowered taxes, also on the credit card, going against any conventional wisdom! Remember? Then brought out the Medicare D prescription plan, also on the credit card. Remember? Boy that Obama sure has spent a lot of money, hasn't he?

did anyone say only cut entitlements for registered democrats? All entitlements need cut way back whomever are receiving them. Deomcrats are not the only ones on entitlements, but the are the only ones trying to keep them at the current unsustainable levels by refusding to cut goverment spending.
