Why do Republicans oppose tax hikes for households making $400,000 or more a year? Those are the ones that can afford to pay more. Guess they are protecting their cronies.

not only are they protecting their cronies, but themselves as well, think about it, how much do they make per year, and their spouses, their corporate backers, it would hurt them more than their cronies, i have noticed they don't think twice before they give their yearly rasies. take fact finding trips on our dime, you would be surprised at all the perks they get. I have to admit that Virginia has had the best Senators the last couple of years, Warner and Kaine cut their way when the were Govs. and have no doubt that they would now if it would help. But ask the rest lol good luck, they seem to forget we put them there

I dont care how hard anybody works, people that make that much money can sure afford to pay higher income taxes than people that make far far less. I guess making somebody wealthy pay more might force them to give up the vacations to Hawaii, ridiculous giant homes, the Escalades, boats, the private schools, etc.

Why penalize someone for earning what they have? Why take away from someone who works hard for their posessions (even vacations), and hand to someont that is too lazy to get up off of their bottom side and work?

Thats not an answer. I choose to give to charities by my free will, as do others, for GOD helps those who help themselves. Its not for the government to take what we work hard for and hand it to someone who will not get up off of the couch of "do nothing" and work! One should not hold out thier left hand for money if their right hand isn't working!!!

True but those making 6 figures can sure afford to pay higher income taxes than those making 5.

Just because you make more doesn't mean you work harder.Most low paying jobs are physically and mentally harder.I know lots of people around here who are working da** hard and don't make much money.We need those jobs done by somebody.Everyone can't get an education and sit around an office,making big money.Someone has to do the hard,dirty,lowpaying jobs.
