Yea: I want someone who is worth $250 million to pay some taxes.
And yeah: I am against draft dodger Romney's plan to cut his taxes even more and have me pay for it.
So is most of America, stay tuned.

What is it called when you are worth more than $250 million, you currently pay half of what the middle class and your propose that what you pay is too much and want to lower it to less than one percent and you want everyone else to cover it?
Romney's plan.
I agree with your outrage at Romney's plan. I was simply addressing the concept of all earnings going to the government and then being distributed as needed which is a cornerstone of communism. Be assured, I do not support the extreme opposite of communism either. I am inclined to avoid the extreme right and the extreme left.

Yah...

No one is asking all earnings going to the government.

Or anything close to it.

But we do have people saying that no investment earnings be taxed.

Hence: the (zero point).82 tax rate Romney is proposing.
