And not a single "conservative" willing to thank Obama and Congress for the reduction in their taxes in 2010. Imagine my surprise.....

Please explain to me how a deduction entitlement which progressively shrinks with income growth and caps out at 1k fiscally exceeds that of people paying 15- 30% more in income taxes?

Where the lower taxes nice? Yes.

The reality was it was temporarily lowered to ease everyone while trillions were being spent. What people really want is lower taxes across the board, forever.

Isn't that a bit like wanting to eat burgers and sweets AND getting thinner at the same time?

You mean the extra 15-30% they pay for the 500-10000% more money they make?

Darned lazy 47% takers. Now if the GOP could only get those lazy good for nothings to vote for them (despite being lazy good for nothings).

bullshit article. proportionately because the majority of people are in that bracket, and they have been paying little to no taxes for so long that they will finally start paying their share. even still, those earners will only see a 3% increase on average. what the article fails to mention is that those making above $400k will see the highest increase of anyone, at 14%

What does this even mean? You truly believe there is an injustice against the little guy, don't you?

Well, because I pay into a system known as federal and state taxes.

Why again do you concern yourself with other peoples income? I wouldn't believe it's because you would rather have someone else foot the bill for your agenda, I mean you practice what preach each day of your life through charity and generosity towards neighbors, family and complete strangers.

No, just get another credit card with a larger debt ceiling.

That's how this country works. You make money here, you pay taxes on that money.

Unless you're a republican, of course. Then you should be allowed to hide the money you make and not pay any taxes.

I understand taxes, I'm curious as to why you think people who earn more money than you should pay for your liberal agenda?

Believing that people who used this country's opportunities to make a fortune should support the country that gave them that opportunity is not a "liberal agenda".

that's pretty funny considering the tax "issues" that surrounded all of Obama's initial appointees, Charlie Rangel, etc.
