As bill Clinton said, even if you taxed him and folks like him, aka the 1%, at 100% it still wouldn't solve our budget mess. Okay, Mr. Marx.<quoted text>The 1%ers want to pay less than the average middle class guy does. The 1% ARE strongly represented by many struggling Americans like Sam, Craine and Dr Dirty. Why? I can't tell you. Sheep just can't think things through.
So, stop acting like we are ONLY talking only about taxing folks with Learjets. There aren't enough of them.
At a certain point you should just acknowledge that to do all the "wonderful" things you and the dems want to do to "help" people, you have to raise taxes fairly significantly on the the 2%-50%ers who actually pay federal income tax, along with the 1%ers.
I can tell you, to the extent my taxes go up ... and they will next year, regardless, I will be spending less. I don't think I'm alone. To the extent the 2%-50%ers are spending less, the economy will grow slower along with the pace of job creation. I do believe if given a choice Americans would rather have jobs verses handouts.
