    I'm middle class..... middle class income, lifestyle etc.

    I am STILL waiting for a liberal to reasonably make me believe that people who have more money than I do through their own efforts, should give me a portion of their income, thru taxation, simply because they have more of it than I happen to have.

    They already contribute more.

    It's just not satisfactory to those who want more of it to offset their inadequate contribution

    Then why did your GOP party enact the Earned Income Credit - so Sony could sell more big screen TV'S?

    My proposal: people who get rich through their own efforts (actors, for example) should not be taxed. People who get rich through passively siphoning income from others (such as landlords) should be responsible for maintenance of the system they set up to allow them to do so.

    I see your memory is as lacking as your knowledge of current events.

    Like sales raxes? Pretty sure tge rich buy more stuff than the poor.

    Propery taxes? Pretty sue mansions have higher property taxes than your 800sq ft apartment.

    Gas taxes? Pretty sure all the yachts, limos, and private planes the rich own require more gas taxes than your bus pass.

    Next?

    When all is said and done, almost every adult American pays about the same effective tax rate, to support a state organized in the class interest of the bourgeoisie.

    With that level of ignorance right out the gate, I’m persuaded to let you wallow in it.

    Good luck with that.
