If the top 2% would start paying taxes, the nation could be saved. Instead, the tax burden is solidly on the poor, while the rich pay virtually no taxes thanks to unfair tax breaks that are denied to the poor. Plus, the rich all get corporate subsidies, so in addition to paying no taxes at all, each of the top 2% get literally billions of dollars in tax money siphoned from those who make less than minimum wage. This is the unfairnes that the Republicans want to continue, whereas Obama is merely asking the super rich to contribute a couple hundred dollars each from their multi billion dollar empires so some poor person can get enough relief that will allow them to feed their children something other than tree bark for dinner.

1. Tax all rich people at 100%.

2. Take all profits of all Fortune 500 companies.

3. Confiscate all property and wealth of all U.S. billionaires.

You could run the U.S. budget eight months.

I'm sorry.

I posted the comment before I saw who I was answering.

You are good. You got me again.

I'm in the camp that believes Republicans have no choice but to agree to raise taxes on the top 2 percent of earners. The party has been successfully caricatured as the servant of the rich. This is unjust, yes, but justice is imperfect in this life. It's political suicide for Republicans to stand fast on maintaining current rates for high earners even at the cost of raising taxes for everyone else. Imagine if we went over the fiscal cliff. In January, Obama would call upon Congress to pass a law restoring the tax rates for 98 percent of filers. What could...
