At this point, I think a dystopian hellscape would be a HUGE improvement for this country.

Don't talk down to me as if you think you are smart

You could help by not saying such stupid things.

only 3 months of the year will have passed

Like this, for example. The fiscal year starts October 1st. Five months. Can you count that high?

it is 44 billion out of 3600-ish billion.

or this, for example. It's $85 billion, and it is not out of the whole 3.5 trillion. 60% of the budget is off the table, and 40% of the year has already passed. That leaves less than a third of the budget. This has been explained to you, but you're, well, stupid.

Oh, and by the way, those tax increases will have to hit every single person. There isn't enough rich people in the US for us to suck dry to save us.

More stupid. Here's how stupid happens: start with an actual fact: if we taxed EARNED income of the wealthy at 100% it wouldn't cover the debt. Now simplify it in to "if we taxed rich people 100%" and you're in the land of stupid.

Capital gains (unearned income) is $2 trillion. Over 90% of it flows to the top 2% of earners. You damn well could solve the deficit problem taxing that at even 50%.

You could also start taxing wealth as opposed to income. Sheldon Adelson has $8 billion or so? Take 2% a year.

You could also put in a corporate minimum tax. The portion of the tax burden carried by corporations has declined by more than half in the last 50 years.

Hint: the top 2% have 80% of the wealth. The richest 400 people in America have more wealth than the poorest 50% of the country. The Wal Mart heirs and Warren Buffet and Bill Gates and Sheldon Adelson and GE - that's where you get the money from.

But you'll keep spouting the same utter bullshiat, because no doubt you've read these facts before and reject them.

cchris_39: Troll or simpleton?  Please be troll.  I get tempted to debate simpletons.

This was worth your time to post.

Omahawg: and go back to the tax rates of 1960 and I bet the majority of americans would get a nice annual check from uncle sam as that trickle-down from the job creators finally, uh, trickled down.

True.  But, we'd have to bear the gnashing of teeth about how the 1950s and early 1960s -- which the teabaggers ordinarily cite as the country's golden age -- were actually a period of overt socialism...even apart from the marginal tax rates of the time.  I mean, during that time, airlines couldn't change their prices without government approval.  And, private citizens couldn't own the telephones in their houses (they belonged to AT&T).

One almost gets the impression that what the teabaggers miss most about the 1950s and early 1960s was the fact that black folk knew their place...and, weren't uppity enough to win the presidency.

Circusdog320: the article failed to mention conservatives going off full tilt about a couple of parked aircraft carriers...My nutty republican "friend" said we should prepare for massive attack!
