They should pay their fair share. They have a bigger stake in this country than the minimum wage earner.

They already their fair share, a % of 50,000,000 is bigger than a % of 30,000. The % shouldn't raise simply because the person is richer than someone else. That's socialist and anti-constitutional. Income redistribution won't solve anything.

Why raise the debt ceiling. The Obama administration just promised a substantial foreign aid package to Somalia today. They haven't made further comment about funding Social Security. Wake up AMERICA This Presidents spending habits cannot be sustained. Cut Govt. funding and Social programs.

It should not be about raising taxes, close the loopholes and cut off the entitlements.

Cut foreign welfare and grants for studying the fungi around Old Faithful and such nonsense. The world hates us and giving them money only makes them say,'why arent you giving us more?' Obama wants to buy world peace. It isnt gonna happen.

The middle class should not carry the heaviest burden of taxes. The rich should pay up as well.

I have read stories of filthy rich people not paying ANY taxes due to numerous tax loopholes. This should stop! If I can pay 30 percent out of my meger wages to help this country, then by golly they can too!

So you think if a person or a company or a corporation employs some one they should not have to pay taxes?

I am forced to agree. If they arent paying any tax then they should pay exactly what everyone else pays. But not more even though their 30 is a lot more than most people's 30 doesn't mean they are bad because they succeeded, it's good for the country to encourage wealth through equality.

If there are any laws passed about the rich, it should be an increase in wage and a lock on the cost of living so that the people get the benefit and not the government. We should take from the rich, but when they increase a tax on them or raise minimum wage, we get inflation in our every day lives. The rich never lose anything, they just pass the buck to John Q.
