    Obama Tax Proposal Has Overwhelming Support

    Andrew Sullivan: "Every single poll shows that the American public overwhelmingly supports higher taxes on the wealthy as part of a package to cut the deficit. The margins are staggering: the NYT poll shows a majority of 74 - 21; even Rasmussen shows a majority of 56 - 34. What the president proposed this morning is simply where the American people are at. If he keeps at it, if he turns his administration into a permanent campaign for structural fiscal reform, I don't see how he loses the argument."

    Yeah he does, it's known as reality.
  6. The polls say that most people believe that other people's taxes should be higher. Wow! What a surprise.

    As the only voice of reason here on this website, I must say, the truth is that taxes should be lowered; not raised.

    For this reason, whoever desires liberty, should understand these vital facts, viz.: 1. That every man who puts money into the hands of a "government" (so called), puts into its hands a sword which will be used against him, to extort more money from him, and also to keep him in subjection to its arbitrary will. 2. That those who will take his money, without his consent, in the first place, will use it for his further robbery and enslavement, if he presumes to resist their demands in the future.
    (Lysander Spooner)

    The people aren't taxed too little, the government spends too much.
    (Ronald Wilson Reagan)

    Clarity and lucid analysis have no place in this thread. Take your honesty elsewhere.
  9. And there is the problem! Those in power are going to do what is best for family and friends.

    Raise taxes on Democrats. That should keep everybody happy.
