The right to keep what you've earned isn't greed, it's our founding principle and the typical billionaire puts more into our economy than ten thousand typical Obama voters.
Billionaires do not pay their fair share. That is a FACT.

If you want to keep what you've earned and not support this country through taxes, move.

The Cayman Islands is really the perfect place for you. No income, capital gains, sales or mandatory social security taxes and employers must provide a pension plan for all workers even expatriates like yourself.

You certainly wouldn't be happy in an oil rich country like Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain etc. even though they have no income or capital gains taxes you'd still have to pay into their social security program and, God forbid, we know that's not acceptable.

THE GENIUS!
Borrows long term at 1.8% to fix the Republican mess.
The top few % are worth over $60 Trillion today.
USA owes 16.
Billionaires do not need tax cuts. They don't deserve them. They made all that dough with tax rates as is. Then complain tax rates are too high? When?
When they were able to amass huge fortunes with tax rates historically higher than now?
Bush/Cheney: "we are due"
So they handed out the US TREASURY TO ALREADY RICH PEOPLE.
During wartime.
Dumb that.
I say cut taxes for average folks who will spend it now.
Raise taxes on rich people who already have everything and can afford it.
Our economy got strong because of a strong middle, buying stuff everyday in large numbers.
We have always had a few rich at the top owning most of the pie, they don't spend enough to drive a large economy. HOARDERS!
Word association:
Republican. Greedy.
Republican. Idiot.
Republican. Hypocrite.
The New KKK has double since Obama has been elected, Libs are KKK every day, and twice on Sundays.

Obama has done more to enslave blacks, Klan Parent Hood is killing off blacks, the Klu Klux Klan loves a half white ass Obama, the KKK would have committed suicide if a rich black man Herman Cain was elected

Thomas Paine is puking in his grave.
People who do the right thing by breaking the law still have to face the consequences. Sometimes they become heroes, sometimes not.

But the big question is why did Snowden flee to Communist China to spill his guts?

China isn't exactly playing nice with us, you know.

He could have secured a whistleblower lawyer in the U.S. and created the same mixed reactions.

Oh Karma,
Cummings released a Progressive squirrel.
No one but him and a few who like to chase squirrels believes this is the final say on the investigation.
Your radical slurs makes your argument whether legit or not look pity and partisan.
of course the difference between what Cummings released, Shafer's ENTIRE testimony and what Issa released, partial transcripts of unidentified people.....who's the partisan lackey here

obviously, you would know.

I have an idea, why doesn't Issa just have open hearing, rather than secret hearings Of course having open hearings wouldn't allow him to release partial transcripts.

Cummings gave Issa a chance, Issa didn't release the transcripts

straw-man fallacy :-)

A straw man or straw person, also known in the

UK as an Aunt Sally,

is a type of argument and is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position.[3] To "attack a straw man" is to create the illusion of having refuted a proposition by replacing it with a superficially similar yet unequivalent proposition (the "straw man"), and to refute it, without ever having actually refuted the original position.[3][4] This technique has been used throughout history in polemical debate, particularly in arguments about highly charged, emotional issues.

Don't know that for sure. But I do know Soros is known as "The Man Who Broke the Bank of England" because of his US $1 billion in investment profits during the 1992 Black Wednesday UK currency crisis.
Among other nefarious activities and well-funded agendas.
When Mitt Rmoney offshores AMerican jobs and forces American factories to close and move to China, you call him a sterling example of American Capitalism.

Let Soros or Buffet make a fortune withoout closing American factories, and you whine and bitch about it, you old crone.

Was Gosnell convicted of murder or performing abortions?
You are still missing the point. The Gosnell trial brought up issues with abortion and may be related to the public shift on abortion sentiments.

It was about the trial and public awareness of abortion issues and problems not the conviction.

One of the things brought up in the trial was the failure of PA to inspect Abortion clinics for over something like 8 years. The Gosnell clinic was filthy and unsafe.
