perhaps, it certainly isnt at a time when the % of govt spending to GDP is anywhere as high as it is now.

Spending is the issue at hand and is what needs to be dealt with.

Why should the govt get tax ppl more b/c they cant get their fiscal house in order?

Tax rates will always go up and down.  Its something we will have to get used to because its the only way revenue is generated to pay for the Defense Budget.  Undecided

if i was creating a tax plan, id probably do an income tax set at 30% of all earning over $120,000.  ($10,000 per month)

which means that if you make $120,000 you get to keep all of it. If you make $121,000 you get to keep $120,700. If you make $130,000 you get to keep $127,000.  etc.

good point. taxes are theft. id prefer if all government revenue came from voluntary donations.


perhaps, it certainly isnt at a time when the % of govt spending to GDP is anywhere as high as it is now.

Spending is the issue at hand and is what needs to be dealt with.

i think the main problemsa re medicare and social security.

You don't think the defense budget is sucking up resources?

Are you being serious?

Jesus Christ, is there anyone even remotely in the dark about this?

X2. Seriously, 500k take home a year is not filthy rich. It is a damn good living, but not filthy rich. I have no clue why you think that'd be a good idea. Every millionaire would just save up a few years, pull the cord on their golden parachute and expat from this place.
