I'm afraid you are 100% correct - that is exactly what this excuse for a president has planned. And what happens when the "rich" are taxed at 49%? Will they continue to build their businesses and create jobs when they have to turn half their money over to the government to redistribute? Of course not. And we'll be wistfully looking back at the days of 9% unemployment.
I agree with Joe 145 - the president would not get the blame. The Republicans would be blamed because they wouldn't raise taxes on "the rich". Simple as that. Never mind that if the government seized ALL of the income of the top 1% or 2%, it would barely make a dent in the deficit. We know that - but most voters don't. Unless the GOP gives 0bama everything he wants, they will be blamed for the economy not being able to recover. And we know that if they DO give him everything he wants, the economy will collapse. I say that's what we do. We're going to hell anyway - might as well speed things up so we can start the cleanup sooner.
You're right, Illbay. They love the stimulus, but it didn't work out well because it just wasn't ENOUGH.

Scrap and Tacitus - I don't think Mother and Hunrodr have actually read the Fair Tax book. They don't seem to grasp the concept. The Fair Tax is really the fairest tax and that's probably why it will never get passed.

Mother - I have to believe you haven't read the Fair Tax book. I don't think you have a true understanding of the tax. It is far superior to any tax plan - including a flat tax - that I've looked into. Please pick up a copy of the book and maybe it will open your eyes.

I haven't heard anything about how that "Kiss-In" turned out, but I understand they had to buy something so they wouldn't be loitering. OK. Fine. Maybe Chick-Fil-A had another record setting day! HaHa!
When will hell freeze over?
You mean the same Louis Farrakhan that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel brought in to help with the city's crime problem? The one who apparently shares "Chicago values"??!
That's what I would love to see. If Romney has nothing to hide (and I sure hope he doesn't), then he should be willing to release more tax returns as 0bama releases his college transcripts, theses, etc.
