do you think that someone who makes $20,000,000/yr needs to keep 70% of that? Why not take an extra 5-10% from them (they will hardly notice it) and disperse that break to people who cant even afford a place to live?

it is sad when a huge chunk of our nation is below poverty
Hardly notice it? Money is money, this tax bracket stuff is stupid.

A rich person (generally) is rich because either them or someone in their family worked hard for there money. Now taking money from them and giving it to someone on welfare is plain wrong, how is that hard to understand? If you worked 40-60 hours a week and atleast 10% (which is the lowest amount that can be taken from your income, atleast in AZ), 4-6 hours of what you just worked would goto the government. They'd waste it on some stupid social program and thus you just worked 4-6 hours for nothing.

Do you have a real job by the way?

And a lot of rich people are rich for taking advantage of the hard work of the lower class. Look at all the businessmen, what do they do to get rich? Take advantage of third world countries or manual labor of US citizens (sometimes not like in walmarts case =p).

Either that or they inherit it... Bill gates lineage will be rich forever, and why? Because he had the ability of being sneaky? Wow, anyone can steal technology, but it takes a lot of "hard work" to actually use it and make $50 billion.

And no, no, no. You act as if ALL their money is taxed w/ income tax. LOL. Rich people can afford to shelter half of their income in other countries or stocks. With bushes tax dividend cut, it is cheaper for them to hold the money in "safe stock." How many people below poverty can afford to shelter their income in stocks? 0%?

AND Finally, yes, I have three jobs (as if it should matter), I work 60 hours a week. I am cutting back to one job when I go to college though.

edit: just for the hell of it, I will clarify my jobs so you dont ask.
Best Buy - 30 hours a week
Veterans Mortgage - 15 hours a week
McClosky's Antiques - 15 hours a week
