If we want to keep all the services we have, we're going to have to pay for it. If we don't want to pay for it, then we're going to have to give up some services and conveniences that the government provides.
The Republicans have been giving tax breaks to the wealthiest americans since Reagan. we havn't created enough jobs to surpass the college grad /legal imigrant rates. Are we better off no then then? tax rates for th top 5% were 39.5 % during the Clinton yrs and we ALL had jingle in our pockets. tell washiton to pass an 8% flat tax(less than you/ parents pay now) no loop holes or deductions. Multi billionaires pay less taxes than thier secrataries. is that fair? the top 400 earners payed less than 14%. the top 6 earners in U.S payed NO TAXES at all. one the gov't OWED MONEY. being a billionaire means you could spend amillion $ a day sisnce jesus was born and still have millions left. yet soneone making $48 thousand a yr pays 37% is it fair?
No to a tax increase, at this time. It wouldn't make sense, close to a recession and w the US being able to borrow at 0 per cent (inflation-adjusted). Yes to increasing the debt limit, for the same reasons. Glad Obama is president, given the alternative.
