As much? What does that mean exactly. I pay a shite load in property taxes and most of that money is allocated to public education. It is more than what it would take to send one of my kids to a private school here in GA.


Colleges. I was quoting the piece were you talked about going to colleges. Colleges are getting a lot less as a percentage of their budget from taxes then they ever had.

My point is simply you didn't do it all by yourself you self made man. You benefited from government services now you want to pull the ladder up behind you.

Yep, there were groups formed and quite the backlash.


I'm talking about the equivalent of "Obama Sheep" for the right.

Then again, you're already convinced I agree with every single thing Obummer(was that good?) has done. Go look up left leaning organizations criticizing Obama. I'm not going to link to any, I can see you can use google effectively.

No shite. I'm not arguing that. How much more tax dollars do you need? When do the tax increases stop?

With a budget of $3.4 trillion and a deficit of #1.3 trillion that means the federal government taxes the people $2.1 trillion. Why not propose raising taxes by 62% to balance the budget if raising taxes is the answer?

re: Why are Democrats fighting so hard to raise taxes?


You need to change your Subject to "Why are Democrats fighting so hard to raise some taxes?" They are waffling on the agreement they reached which allows all of the Bush tax cuts to expire. They want to limit the increase in taxes to only a segment of the population instead of having them apply to everyone as they previously agreed.
