Fairness in our eyes means that no one flourishes off the backs of those who make them their millions without contributing their "fair share"
We MAKE their product-we SELL their product-we DELIVER their product-we BUY their product-we deal with customer service of their product.....etc.
We make them their money,ALL of it.yet we are the ones who are supposed to thank THEM and reward THEM for THEIR hard work...this conservative idea is ridiculous.
Yes they started the business but that business is NOTHING without the working class/middle class.
Everyone has a right to be successful and we need as many successful people in this country as we can get BUT why do we have to praise them and pretend they did it all on their own?there were many many people who were essential to that CEO or owners success,why should they not be treated more like a backbone of this country then a "job creator".why should the gap between the two be so huge?
I work at a factory and I have for 10 years.i have seen lay offs and I have seen expansion,and both were based on SALES,not tax breaks,or lack there of.i can give my factory 100 million dollars and if the sales aren't there,if the demand is not there,then all of that money goes to bonuses for the upper management....that therefore created not one job and that money will not have a positive impact on the economy because it will just be stacked on top of the rest of their money,when it could have been flowing through the economy.
I agree that spending needs to come down,and I agree that our government is wasteful.all I think is that if you put more money into the pocket of the middle class by slashing their taxes,they will as a result buy more, travel more, spend more,thus creating a high demand for EVERYTHING,thus creating jobs and in turn still increasing owners and CEOs profits an expansion.this would also mean that less people were taking from the government and more were paying in.
In my opinion tax the wealthy at 30-40% and slash taxes on the middle class,big time.the wealthy will still spend money and the middle class will begin to spend and/or spend more.creating bigger revenue and increased profits for all.why is this such a bad thing?

Not all dems are the same.i am a Christian I believe we should:tax the rich-lower the taxes on middle class-lower corporate tax rate-put an import tax on china-drill all over the country including our shores-pass the keystone pipeline-only sell OUR OIL in north America -bring ALL troops home from EVERYWHERE and let them do tours on the border-ban gay marriage-ban abortion-profile when dealing with illegals and deport them-calm down the EPA and other regulators-drug test people on government programs-
