    With that being said who is that everyone is in debt to? “The man”? With China owing trillions and yet making money from pretty much everyone in the world it makes one wonder how this all works. I’m actually glad I’m not smart enough to understand the process.

    You guys are forgetting the Feds balance sheet......This thing is much deeper and more fooked then most realize. Stagflation is here until the system blows.

    Remember “Your fair share” is more than you think, the bottom 50% wont pay anything so you will have to pay 200-300k. 100k for you 100k for thise that dont pay, and another 100k to pay bureaucrats to “process the paperwork”

  4. 140-150 million tax returns are filed annually with the top 50% paying 97% of all taxes so basically 70 million people pay it all. So, about $400K per taxpayer who actually pays.

    Those people should get a weighted vote, maybe a vote for every 10k in taxes, capped at 10 votes. (Probably makes me a racist)

    Republicans talk about debt when Democrats control things ,but when they control things they don t care any more. Give the Rich a tax break and make the debt worse.

    The percentage of rich is so low, if you took everything they had it would not dent the national debt. Add to that, all their business would then fail, and millions out of work. Your communist ideas just dont work. History has proven that many times.

    Every member of Congress should be fired/sent home if they cannot devise a budget that is fiscally responsible.

    I'm sorry.....it really is that simple.
    Yeah...I really am not sorry for stating the obvious truth.

    do congress members pay tax. they are probably the exempt class,. if they had to pay what they impose, things would be different. personally, they should get minimum wage, an if their bank accounts reach a certain level, they should be financially punished, and pay for there own insurance. they should play by the rules they set up, in a stacked game. :mad:
