    The Republican conservatives say we

    Can reduce the deficit as long as all the cuts come from the poor, the sick, the children, the elderly, and if the super rich aren't called upon to make any sacrifices...

    • ++most freeloaders were more interested in skipping school++

      You insist they are in the majority which is not true. This is the myth being perpetuated by the super rich to maintain economic warfare between the middle class and the hard working poor, while your class steals the store, America is starting to catch on..

    • You appear to imply that the rich are not hard working. It is interesting to hear about hard working lower wage people. Work starts in grade school, then high school, college, etc. If you put the total hours of lifetime work including 100 hour wook weeks of the rich they would on average greatly exceed those who treated schoolong as a joke.

      Your comment about 4 applicants for every jobs ignores the facts. The unemployment rate for college graduates is less than 5%. Employers
      have plenty of job openings but most applicants lack the necessary skills.
      While many of the rich were tolling 100 hour weeks in college, taking out loans and subsequently taking major career and financial risks most freeloaders were more interested in skipping school, drinking beer and having fun. Now their vote is available to will ever give them the most.

    • so your making the communist argument? Now that outta work.

    • The fallacy of the conservative argument is that even tho there are four applicants for every job opening, the rich are the only ones who get satisfaction from working. JFK said a life of total leisure is the hardest work of all, and even tho the conservatives keep claiming falsely that we're all shiftless, lazy ne'er do wells, it just aint so. America is catching on to your campaign of greed, and hate for your fellow Americans

    • No republic has lasted more than 300 years. We are now up to 235 years.
      The freeloaders are now the majority and increasing as they continue to vote for more entitlements. The liberals led by Obama claim this is "fair". You base your case on fairness but you either fail to see or to care about the end result.
      You can't believe that 1% will pay for 99%? It has to break at some point.

      You remind me of the story about the dinner group whose regular meetings were financed by the richest person. When the restaurant cut their prices the non payers wanted their share of the savings.

    • ++Comrade, your right. Capitalism doesn't work. It the job of the government to fix it. Welcome to Greece and the former Soviet empire.++

      It's the laissez-faire capitalism that doesn't work, then the real capitalists get greedy, and we all go down the tubes, even the capitalists. Thats what's been happening...

    • Top 5% pay 50% and increasing. What is your goal? Bottom 50%, and increasing, known as freeloaders, pay nothing. What is your goal? 75%? 90%?.
      It must be a wonerfull feeling - to live off the labor of others.

    • This seems to directly apply to your post...
      We are socialists, we are enemies of today's capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions." --Adolf Hitler
      (Speech of May 1, 1927. Quoted by Toland, 1976, p. 306)

    • Can't read an IRS report provided in simple terms that even a dimbulb like you could read as to how much the well to do pay in taxes? What a retard.

      • Even if the hedge fund manager who had an income of ten billion dollars last year paid ninety percent income tax on that, he'd still be left with a thousand million dollars, any one should be able to get by on that. We ask our poor, and middle class to make the ultimate sacrifice in going to war, how about a little more sacrifice from the super wealthy ??? They're not doing enough for what they're getting...

    • Shut up. You're either stupid or a loser.
      47% don't pay any taxes.
      Small business, Corporations and Rich create the jobs.
      Go start a business and quit complaining.
