The rich are the job creators. Isn't that is what is great about america? Work hard, risk everything and become successful? Hire people? Enjoy the earnings?

the middle-class have been taxed to death. I pay 25% of my 50K a year job, while a person that makes a million a year pays less than 4%? Why should we pay the same amount? THAT'S socialism!

When the politicians say "the rich" they really mean the average American, as opposed to those who leech off the broken welfare system in this country.

If the politicians meant those who are truly "rich" then my vote would go for yes, but as it stands, not a chance.

Cut the debt ceiling, government does not need to be borrowing any money. Commerce will go on forever without government. Get rid of income tax and cut taxes for everyone to five percent with no deductibles.
