Hell's Yeah! The rich get away with so many tax breaks and loopholes. They need to share in the sacrifice instead of lobbying to not pay their fair share. My income went down and my taxes went up while the rich see their wealth increase and taxes decrease. That's not fair. Most politicians are millionaires themselves. Surely you can't expect them to agree to pay their fair share of taxes like the middle class do.

Absolutely, the rich are getting richer while the middle class is getting poorer. THe rich need to pay more because they are the ones benefitting when the economy is down.

Let the poor be taxed; they are the ones who put the strain on the gov't anyway. Nothing but parasites.

The poor don't pay property taxes and don't pay much income tax if they even have a job. We need to tax the rich so that the middle class can survive. Many families need 3 income earners now just to stay afloat. The rich don't need to work anymore. They're set for life and haven't paid their fair share because of tax loopholes. If everyone paid their "fair" share then all poor, middle class, and the rich will be equally contributing. My net income is 71%. Rich people have a net income of 90%(Forbes, May 2011).

The poor pay little to nothing in taxes yet they are the ones who benefit the most from gov't programs. It's not the rich that is the problem, but rather the poor that is the problem. Why should your tax money go towards someone who doesn't work or want to work?
Perhaps this country needs a national sales tax and eliminate the income tax. This way everyone pays the same rate.

Dude I specifically said that there should be simply a national sales tax so that poor people end up paying more.The rich and poor aren't paying their fair share. The middle class is getting screwed.
