Great! While going over the cliff, salaries and wages are cut to the bone and taxes & fees are increased exponentially.

How's all that hope and change working out for y'all?

Nobody is getting their salaries cut, in fact salaries are going up thanks to the President. Taxes are going up slightly on the rich. They can afford it.

You are paid what you are worth. Therefore, since in America, human labor is deemed worthless, more jobs will be outsourced to China and India. American labor will be forced to take massive pay and benefit cuts in order to save their own jobs. The American way of life is a thing of the past thanks to Imam Barack HUSSEIN Obama, that illegal alien mooslum from Nairobi pretending to be the President of the United States of America.

Interesting. You ARE paid what you ARE worth, yes. President Obama has succeeded in adjusting the tax code to make the rich begin to start paying their fair share. The rich can afford it.

Just how much do you consider to be their "fair share", isn't over 50% of their earnings enough? When should the 47% of tax return filers who right now pay 0 income tax start to pay some income tax?

Government employee salaries are increasing while private sector wages are going down, in a lot of cases to 0 since they are being laid off.

Fair is 90% of rich people's income from all sources. They can afford it.

So what's a "fair" number for rich people to pay in taxes?

The government employees that I service were speechless when I told them that for every dollar that my business license increased, I would have to raise my prices one hundred dollars to fund my new bureaucracy to study the tax increase, do environmental impact studies on it, vacation in Hawaii, etc.

What’s good for the goose...

You should go ahead and set the example by paying 90% of your income to the. Government. You can send the IRS an extra check and they will be happy to accept it.

The same percentage that everyone else pays. I think the poor people should start paying taxes too, they can afford it. They seem to have plenty of money for their cigarettes, drugs and booze.
