Last time I checked, Obama consumes oxygen and exhales identical amounts of CO2 as any other human being. If you are addressing the CO2 generated by his Whitehouse and Travel, compare him with President Bush, as usual you compare totally un-identical information.
So Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerburg, Ted Turner I could go on and on are FREE LOADERS! Please reread your own post and delete it, it shows lack of information.
Why should they Volunteer? Are you saying they should subsidize others in their same income group who do not wish to pay their Fair share? No one likes to pay higher taxes, its necessary to have a progressive tax code, the wealthy must bear higher burden of taxes. Wealthy give campaign contribution to BUY their tax preferences that results in higher taxes for Middle class. The POOR cannot pay any taxes, the wealthy BUY their TAX Breaks, the MIDDLE CLASS ends up paying for the TAX breaks bought buy the WEALTHY.
Warren Buffet supports raising the taxes on those in his income group, I don't believe that he will pay higher taxes unless all in his income group also pay their share, he has alternate ways to help the country, he is a generous and honorable man and not a fool to pay taxes for others in his income group who avoid paying their share. He wants to reduces taxes for middle class by paying more, and not to subsidize wealthy.
Asking Warren Buffet to write a check to IRS (for amounts above his tax liability) is akin to saying Warren Buffet should write a check for other Billionaires who do not wish to pay their fair share. Ultimately the middle class ends up paying for the TAX BREAKS given to Billionaires or ends up being the much maligned deficit.
Who received campaign contributions fro ENRON? Ken Lay gave contributions to Dubya campaign.
Solyndra is a single example of failure, many other solar energy companies received encouragement and success. Many start up business do not survive, Solydra was just one. Go count the record of other Republican administration, their failures far exceed their success. Obama saved auto industry, and created millions of jobs. Have you forgotten the crisis of 2008 / 2009 without Democrat administration rescue we would still be having high unemployment.
Fortunately WE Americans are intelligent enough to know Hillary Clinton is the most qualified and Superb person, she will be our NEXT PRESIDENT. No amount of maligning her is going to help you. Notice you have Nothing GOOD to say about your Republican candidate. WE DEMOCRATS have a CANDIDATE we can SUPPORT with ENTHUTHIASIM.
Obviously your not good at numbers. You wont hear me use derogatory words about any Republican. Just goes to show how un-informed you are.
Sorry to say this, I don't think that is fair. Social security benefit should reflect the contribution made by an individual. Social security taxes should also be paid at a lower rate for income of all source, or disability should be paid from general fund. Congress and State employees should not be exempted.
Donald Trump has a higher approval rating amongst Republicans, I think main stream Republican hierarchy has truly earned their bad reputation by being a party of JUST SAY NO or JUST support the WEALTHY. Why should any common person support them?
Can you rob wealthy people? They have an army of guards, lawyers, tax consultants. They fund campaigns so how do you rob them?
So how come many fortune 500 corporations pay no taxes, Billionaires pay lower tax rate than an hardworking well educated Engineer? How does Carried interest magically transforms to Capital Gains instead of ordinary income? Democrats are for Common Man. Republicans represent the interests of wealthy. Middle class ends up carrying the tax load of wealthy. So tell me again, Why do they have an Army of Lawyers and tax consultants? While rest of us use standard deductions. Eliminate all deductions PERIOD! Keep the tax rates as they exist. Treat all income equally. Then you will have a Fair System.
Why should they eliminate any one? I find him more acceptable than others. At least he is not bound by the wealthy donors. Democracy demands all voices be heard. I am a Hillary Clinton voter, but unlike others I respect the process of electing a President. There is no need for us to comment on other party candidates. If we do we are no different than some RW folks here. Say something positive about your candidate and ignore others.
Please be assured only one person can be President at a time. Hillary Clinton is that person, The BEST and most QUALIFIED person. So stop worrying!
