    I can tell you I disagree with Politix' policy. Talk about a misleading, inflammatory headline. Asking the wealthy to pay more when they have benefitted so much from this nation is not "soaking the rich." And the writer who titled this story knew it, too.

    @woodtick57 I pay 27% of my meager income in taxes they pay 14%. They should pay atleast that much. Maybe we should tax them at 70-80% which has been proven to work in the past.

    @TheViper Hell, I ain't rich but, like the rich folks, I pay 14% on investments. You need to check your 401K exemptions and retirement savings. When you raise tax rates you might just screw yourself along with the rich. Or, maybe your boss will see fit to stop any matching funds to your retirement savings. Businesses will do two things...cut their overhead (that includes labor and benefits), raise the price on the things they sell. No matter what you think, the cost will be passed along to the consumer....that's me and you. I am already being hit by Obamacare, my routine medical and insurance costs are up about 18%.

    @TheViper We pay a lot more in total dollars. do you get less gov't? no, no you do not. we have a very progressive tax system in the US, and we should. but again, how much will ever be enough for those that want others to pay their way for them?

    To the moderators: Why did you remove that post. What I wrote was no differant than a section in mad magazine. Political figures are open game for that sort of thing. I was not attacking anyone who posts in here personally. I dont like nancy pelosi for lots of reasons, her politics obviously, so I just drew a caractiture of her for people. Your censorship keeps people from expressing themselves the way FREEDOM of speech should allow them to. I know I am on a private site therefore here only by your allowing me to be. But boredom at not being able to say anything that might OFFEND anyone may make me go away long before you need to tell me to go.

    @Denizen_Kate I noticed politix removed my post, which was nothing more than a satirical caractiture of that woman. I do apologize for attacking you personally in earlier posts, it was boorish and beneath me. However, that woman, who is in a position of leadership, passed a bill (the healthcare bill) without reading it. Said "we can find out whats in it after we pass it." Why? Because she didnt CARE what was in it, she is still just a cheerleader at heart and was just putting a rubber stamp on what barry wanted. RAH RAH RAH. How can I give her the respect she and most american women expect, just by the FACT she is a woman, when she wont do a JOB she was sent to do. That is my biggest problem with american women. I can do anything you can do, but I wont, because I might break a nail. I can hold the door open myself, but I wont, thats your job. Women in combat? sure, but as soon as one goes P.O.W. get out the boo hoo stories about what might be happening to her and send in a seal team to risk thier lives to save one that shouldnt have been there in the first place. American feminism. scyzophrenic and narcissistic. What about those women in middle east countries who have the right to sit down and shut up. Do you even care about them? Where is jane fonda on that one? where are you?

    @CATTLEPROD - okay, now you're going at her for the issues, and that's fair game. I don't like her politically either, so no argument there. As for feminism in America, while I can understand your frustration, perhaps you can understand mine. I have two brothers. I got better grades in high school but was told by my blue collar parents that there was no college money for me. I was forced into typing and bookkeeping classes so that I "could get a job as a Secretary until I found a husband." My brothers were encouraged to apply to colleges. Neither of them finished and I'm the one with the six figure income. I've had to achieve everything the hard way and there were times when male coworkers doing the same job were paid more. I've come to abhor double standards in our society. As for women in other countries, yes I do think about how much worse it is for them and that's why I contribute when I can to orgs like Doctors Without Borders and support the recent UN resolution naming access to contraceptives as a basic human right.

    Sorry for such a long post, but your comment was thoughtful and I wanted to reply in kind.

    @Denizen_Kate wow, talk about having to walk in anothers shoes to get thier point of view. I am sorry to hear about the hurdles you had to overcome, especially put there by family that is worse, but it makes me wonder why you arent a republican as a result and if so I misread you. I know I come off as a mysogonist, I'm not, I am chauvanistic, I admit that, I have always thought women and men are like right and left hands. There are some things one does better and some things the other does better and together its perfect. But certain areas I am just a solid no-go about. One is women in combat, you know why about that, another would be woman cops. I saw a video one day of a woman cop pulling over an at large felon and getting completely beaten down by this guy. I just think there are certain things we do better, certain things women do better, math and science among them, and american feminism tries to blur those lines too much. And then gets in my face about it to the point I cant even watch t.v. hardly, because the only role for white guys are the clueless boyfriend in need of assistance from his girlfriend, or gay.

    I completely agree with asking the ultra-wealthy to pay their fair share. For too many years the rich have gotten richer and the poor and middle class have fallen behind. It about time that they pay a little more. This will not only help to reduce the debt but will help to level the playing field. PolitixDavid should be ashamed of himself for the "soaking the rich" comment.

    Hmmmmm heres an idea, stop paying all of the career politicans no matter if there is a D or R in front of thier names until the stop blowing our taxes on entitlments, wasteful fedral programs and welfare for those that do not need it. Stop sending my tax money to people over seas that hate us and cheer in the streets everytime some Islamofacist blows up on of our bases or kills one of our people.

    maybe, since she is a so called "well to do" elitist, she can just tax herself into bankruptcy, or better yet why doesnt she move a bunch of the ghetto rats in with her.

    Gee what a shock. Maybe the brainwashed electorate that elected Obama might get to see that it was not only the GOP that refused to compromise. Democrats require an endless supply of increasing tax dollars to fund their Socialist ideology.

    Pelosi is acting like an idiot, & is nearly as much of an embarresment to the United States, as Obama. Before the recent election, most of the world thought of the U.S. as fools, after the election, we proved it..

    Wholesale redistribution of wealth is not going to work. Yes, the rich should do more to better compensate the people that actually produce something. However, they shouldn't be forced by law, integrity should dictate how they distribute profits. Putting professional politicians in that loop, only insures the money will not go where it is supposed to go. instead the money will be used, as it always is, to buy political capital to be spent by the politician in an effort to further their political careers. Flat tax and term limits must happen in order for our country to pay down the debt.

    Nancy Pelosi would be wise to learn that you can shear a sheep many times but you can only skin it once. What Ms. Pelosi and people of her ilk fail to realize is that while they can confiscate what others earn, they can't force them to work. They can't force people to earn. They can't force people to invent or invest. After a certain point, it just makes more sense not to work. After a certain point, companies move to countries where the taxes are less onerous. After a certain point, talented people move to countries where the opportunities are better. This isn't 1962 where the United States is the only game in town. The United States is no longer the center of the world it used to be. After the competent and productive leave or just decide to retire, who will support the non-productive? Who will provide the money for this great society that can't even do a decent job of educating its children? Who will provide all the money for the public employee pensions and benefits? Borrowing from China and other counties cannot and will not continue indefinitely. We are in the final act of the great experiment in self-governace called the United States. Nancy Pelosi and the other politicians in Washington are are hardly the Deus ex machina that most people expect will save them. At the conclusion of the play there will be only two types of people........victims and spectators. I plan to be a spectator.

    Everyone is gonna pay more regardless of if the rich pay more. The plan for the rich to pay more is fine with me, but if they pay more, we all pay more in the end, pass-it-on economics.
