    They are playing with monopoly money anyways. . . . . .

    The sad thing is that there is a lot of really stupid ideas of what "wealthy" is. I doubt there is any person or business that makes 250K a year considers themselves wealthy. Sure they are doing better than most people, but frankly they don't have enough money saved.

    Even if it is morally ok, to tax "wealthy people," there simply isn't enough money to tax to pay for it all.

    I always find it funny, in a sad sort of way how people just don't get it. The Bush "tax cuts" lowered taxes for lots of people, but government revenues went way up.

    You raise taxes, it hurts the economy, and the government makes less money in taxes.

    The tax code should be set up to encourage economic growth, but Obama and his team are using it as a political hammer to garner political and ideological support.

    I hate politicians, and I hate socialists politicians the most.

    Anyone who has climbed onto Obama's bandwagon will go on the air or in print to spout the party line. Most of them know that it is total BS, and that the only way to come anywhere close to paying for these grand Marxist dreams will be to tax the hell out of everybody. Their goal is to create a country that is dependant on, beholden to and completely submissive to the Federal (Central) Government.

    The day that one or several states seriously begin to move towards regional sovereignty is coming closer all the time. It's fine with me if the Northeast and California want to live in the workers paradise, just don't insist on dragging me along for the ride...

    The problem with the people who want to tax the wealthy is that they don't really believe it. Or should I say it's ok until they become wealthy, then it's stay the hell away from my money.,

    So, uhm, why didn't Obama nationalize the banks, transform GM into a state industry, or sweep aside the insurance companies given the key opportunities in the recent past?

    Just because you've never seen a million bucks doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

    Anyone who believes that the wealthy need to be taxed at some jacked up rate has never had to work in the private sector. I would go out on a limb and say that 75% of Washington has never worked for a living or that it has been such a long time since they have that they have totally forgotten what it is like. They are being paid by those of us that are the private sector, elected by those of us in the private sector, and are the first to rape and pillage us for more.

    If the government wheel starts getting a little rusty and they need a little more money to give away to crappy union controlled companies, John Murtha's projects, welfare, illegal immigrants, banks, or anyone else they need to buy votes from, they have two options. They can either print some more, or they can steal it from people who have worked for it. Either way, the people who create jobs pay for it. Our way of life is in serious danger. The more people who get on the government tit, the more democrats get in office.

    Stupid people seem to think money grows on trees and don't have a problem confiscating other people's hard work, good fortune, or inheritance.

    Because he can't outright do it does not mean he won't in the long term.

    No one can deny that Obama is a socialist. If you do, then you are blind.
