If people would actually take the time and look at the tax percentages over the last 60 years that would be in complete shock. Taxes for the rich use to linger around 60-70% and these ass wipes are complaining about 35%



Now please define for me "rich".

Since you seem to be falling for the same game as those I thought less intelligent than you.

Namely, "rich" is defined by anyone making more than you, and "they" should pay more because that is better than you or the "not rich" chipping in more too.

*shakes head*

I thought we were all equal here in the land of opportunity.
Guess not.

fact is, if we are cereal about eliminating our debt, we have to temporarily (ugh) increase taxes, cut spending dramatically and across the board, and get it done.

Then we can start bringing down tax rates across the board, and for everyone.

The above will never happen.

Please explain why someone should pay 70% tax rate to the government. And don't give me this...because they can afford it bullshit.

wow, someone here has actually made that argument? for awhile there i was worried that the conservatives on this board were just trotting out a tired straw man. glad to see undeniable proof that those advocating progressive taxation do so out of selfishness and jealousy.

I'm in favor of abolishing the income tax and replacing it with a VAT.

You are more likely to see a VAT tax added on top of the income tax.

Get real man.
Just as everybody wants everything but doesn't want to pay for it, so goes the taxation hot potato.
And yes, that argument is made over and over and over again, they just church it up, as you are trying with the selfishness and jealousy jab.
They do it because they want the other guy to pay for it, plain and simple.

You lollerskate at "equality" in taxation?

Yeah, of course you do.

everyone on here agrees that we cannot sustain the current spending levels in the US. We either must cust drastically or increase taxes....or a combination of the two.

Your view (along with most) is that someone other than yourself should be the ones to pay more to fund it. Your view is as simple as that.

i would almost go along with a "flat tax" like someone else mentioned if everyone actually had equal opportunity to succeed in america, but it doesn't quite work that way. hell, cut military spending and divert much of that money into social programs and you might get my support for a flat tax.

upset that you pay taxes at a higher rate than the poor and middle class? how about just being happy that you were likely born into a more advantaged household.

That's right....it is always someone else's fault for what someone has not achieved in their life.

There is definitely some truth to that statement. However, a lot of the accountability falls on the individual....that is the part that you seem to ignore.

I come from a High School where less than 20% of the student body went to college. It was a rural high school without the financially advantaged. Everyone in that school had access to the same classes....the same teachers...the same facilities. 20% chose to take advantage of it....and 80% chose not to. I guess that 80% can blame the system.....bullshit.
